Abstract

Electrocardiography (ECG) signals are widely used to gauge the health of the human heart, and the resulting time-series signal is often analyzed manually by a medical professional to detect any arrhythmia that the patient may have suffered. Much work has been done to automate the process of analyzing ECG signals, but most of the research involves extensive preprocessing of the ECG data to derive vectorized features and subsequently designing a classifier to discriminate between healthy ECG signals and those indicative of an Arrhythmia. This approach requires knowledge and data on the different types of Arrhythmia for training. Detecting abnormal heartbeats from an electrocardiogram (ECG) signal is an important problem studied extensively and yet is a difficult problem that defies a viable working solution, especially on a mobile platform which requires computationally efficient and yet accurate detection mechanism. However, the heart is a complex organ and there are many different and new types of Arrhythmia that can occur which were not part of the original training set. Thus, it may be more prudent to adopt an anomaly detection approach towards analyzing ECG signals. .We use various algorithms and methods and constructed a code for classifying the arrhythmia based on the variations in the signals and putting up a threshold value for every particular category respectively
