An efficient and automatic ECG arrhythmia diagnosis system using DWT and HOS features and entropy- based feature selection procedure


Primary recognition of heart diseases by exploiting computer aided diagnosis (CAD) machines, decreases the vast rate of fatality among cardiac patients. Recognition of heart abnormalities is a staggering task because the low changes in ECG signals may not be exactly specified with eyesight. In this paper, an efficient approach for ECG arrhythmia diagnosis is proposed based on a combination of discrete wavelet transform and higher order statistics feature extraction and entropy based feature selection methods. Using the neural network and support vector machine, five classes of heartbeat categories are classified. Applying the neural network and support vector machine method, our proposed system is able to classify the arrhythmia classes with high accuracy (99.83%) and (99.03%), respectively. The advantage of the presented procedure has been experimentally demonstrated compared to the other recently presented methods in terms of accuracy.
