An Integrated System for the Diagnosis of Cardiac Pathology through the Analysis

By A. Alexandridi, M. Doroslovacki, A. Koulouris and G. Manis


Abstract:- The decrease in heartbeat variation is an indication of abnormal heart function. Without the help of appropriate computerized methods, physicians are not able to make a diagnosis based on this assumption. Described here is an automated system, ready for clinical use, which will aid in making an accurate diagnosis. It is made up of two sections; an acquisition section and a processing section. The first is responsible for the correct recording and storing of an electrocardiogram. The latter provides analysis and processing, which identifies and extracts the heartbeat intervals from the cardiograms, the variation of which is then examined through the application of the Discreet Wavelet Transform. Finally, a simple neural network automates the system by categorizing the results of the wavelet processing into healthy or unhealthy slots
