Single beats from ECG recording were used to demonstrate how the nonlinear dynamical analysis method of recurrence plots can be used to qualitatively describe data. It is concluded that, for ECG examples, the characteristics of the signals that cause particular features of the recurrence plots are easily identified. However, features in recurrence plots obtained from other signals must have similar underlying causes. Recurrence plots may therefore reveal time-domain features of a signal that make it easier to describe.
