Changes in the normal rhythm of a human heart may result in different cardiac arrhythmias, which may be immediately fatal or cause irreparable damage to the heart sustained over long periods of time. The ability to automatically identify arrhythmias from ECG recordings is important for clinical diagnosis and treatment. In this study, we have detected on ECG Arrhythmias using principal component analysis (PCA) and least square support vector machine (LS-SVM). The approach system has two stages. In the first stage, dimension of ECG Arrhythmias dataset that has 279 features is reduced to 15 features using principal component analysis. In the second stage, diagnosis of ECG Arrhythmias was conducted by using LS-SVM classifier. We took the ECG Arrhythmias dataset used in our study from the UCI (from University of California, Department of Information and Computer Science) machine learning database. Classifier system consists of three stages: 50–50% of training-test dataset, 70–30% of training-test dataset and 80–20% of training-test dataset, subsequently, the obtained classification accuracies; 96.86%, 100% ve 100%. The end benefit would be to assist the physician to make the final decision without hesitation. This result is for ECG Arrhythmias disease but it states that this method can be used confidently for other medical diseases diagnosis problems, too.

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this study is to build a fuzzy linguistic prediction model (FLPM) for analyzing the actuation duration of acute hyperglycemia to sinoatrial node field potential. The field potential was recorded using microelectrode arrays (MEA). The experimental data were analyzed using partial least squares (PLS), support vector machine (SVM), back propagation neural network (BPNN) and the proposed method. The experimental results showed that the fuzzy linguistic prediction model could be adopted for predicting the actuation duration of high glucose to the sinoatrial node field potential. Compared with the other aforementioned models, the proposed model had higher prediction accuracy.

Although, in such classification approaches, acceptable results may be achieved, however, due to the implementation of the original samples as components of the feature vector, computational cost and burden especially in high sampling frequencies will be very high and the algorithm may take a long time to be trained for a given database.

    ABSTRACT: Intelligent computing system and knowledge-based system have been widely used in the diagnosis and classification of ECG based diseases. Several detection methods of ECG parameters for a particular disease have also been reported in the literature. But little effort has been made by researchers to combine both. In this work, an integrated model of rule base system for generating cases and ANN methods for matching cases in the case base reasoning model for the interpretation and diagnosis of sinus disturbances (SD) is developed. The SD is hierarchically structured in terms of their physio-psycho parameters and ECG based parameters. Cumulative confidence factor (CCF) is computed at different nodes of hierarchy. The SD considered are sinus arrest, sinus bradycardia, sinus tachycardia and sinus arrhythmia. MIT/BIH ECG database is used in the simulation study. The basic objective of this work is to enhance the computational effort with certain level of efficiency and accuracy.
