Visuocognitive Fluency Facilitating ECG Interpretation with Visual Metaphors and Expressive Tags

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The acquisition of data for medical diagnosis may be regarded as reliable and accurate, however visual representations of these data may cause significant cognitive load to novice practitioners, or learners. ECG interpretation is a case in point. This paper introduces work in progress with regard to facilitating ECG interpretation through the use and testing of visual metaphors and expressive tags. Commonly used in domains such as visual advertising, comics, musical notation, performing arts and education, visual metaphors serve as a useful heuristic to present complex concepts. Testing the potential impact of visual metaphors and expressive tags on the accuracy of ECG interpretation is novel to ECG research. The visuocognitive principles introduced in this paper have the potential to make a positive contribution to HCI and information visualisation.
