Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the main cause of cardiac death worldwide. The Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is one of the leading causes of these CVD deaths. CAD condition progresses rapidly, if not diagnosed and treated at an early stage may eventually lead to an irreversible state of heart muscle death called Myocardial Infarction (MI).

Electrocardiogram is widely used to diagnose the congestive heart failure (CHF). It is the primary noninvasive diagnostic tool that can guide in the management and follow-up of patients with CHF. Heart rate variability (HRV) signals which are nonlinear in nature possess the hidden signatures of various cardiac diseases. Therefore, this paper proposes a(More)
Identification of alarming features in the electrocardiogram (ECG) signal is extremely significant for the prediction of congestive heart failure (CHF). ECG signal analysis carried out using computer-aided techniques can speed up the diagnosis process and aid in the proper management of CHF patients. Therefore, in this work, dual tree complex wavelets(More)
