Classification of ECG Data for Predictive Analysis to Assist in Medical Decisions.


A. R. Chitupe S. A. Joshi


Vol. 15  No. 10  pp. 48-53


In recent years due to physical and mental stress in the working environments the cases of medical diagnosis using ECG are increasing up-bounds. The critical decisions in diagnosis referring to the normal ECG or indicative dysfunctions of the heart results into overlapped data values causing ambiguities. This research paper performs analytical processing and related mining to classify normal and abnormalities of the ECG. The ECG is a graphical representation generated due to polarities of the weak electrical signals generated in certain defined timely manner. With reference to time an ECG is used to measure the rate and regularity of heartbeats, as well as some special behavior of the patient. ECG can be used to investigate heart abnormalities. With increased number of patients and reported diseases, it is becoming mandatory of maintaining medical databases and effective classification method for mining the effective relation between causes. This paper investigates the results of KNN (K-Nearest Neighbor) algorithm to find relation between geometric parameters like area and behavioral parameters of ECG especially in pregnancy cases.
