A simple approach of ANN based ECG beats classification

Abstract— The automatic processing of ECG for classification of heartbeat is presented in this paper. This work gives ability to the classifier to classify the beats to one of the four classes as recommended by ANSI/AAMI EC57:1998 standard. The beats are normal, ventricular, supraventricular and fusion. The data obtained from MIT-BIH database. Six hundred beats have chosen from each class. The accuracy, sensitivity, specificity and predictivity for supraventricular beats are 96%, 90.8%, 97.7% and 92.8% respectively. For ventricular beats they are 97%, 92.8%, 98.3% and 95.1%. For normal beats they are 98%, 96.7%, 98.6% and 95.9%. For fusion beats 95%, 92%, 96.1% and 88.7% respectively. These results obtained are an improvement on previously reported results.

I. INTRODUCTION
Heart diseases are one of the most life threatening disease in the world now a days. The common method for diagnosing cardiac diseases is ECG. ECG is simple, non-invasive and cost effective tool for diagnosing purpose. It is important to classify the beats properly to find out the arrhythmia. Classification of heart beat is tedious and time consuming job therefore there is need of automatic classification which assist cardiologist.
Automated classification of heartbeats for diagnosing of heart beat has been done using a large…
