The performance of computer aided ECG analysis depends on the precise and accurate delineation of QRS-complexes. This paper presents an application of K-Nearest Neighbor (KNN) algorithm as a classifier for detection of QRS-complex in ECG. The proposed algorithm is evaluated on two manually annotated standard databases such as CSE and MIT-BIH Arrhythmia(More)
Although patterns of heart rate variability (HRV) hold considerable promise for clarifying issues in clinical applications, the inappropriate quantification and interpretation of these patterns may obscure critical issues or relationships and may impede rather than foster the development of clinical applications. The duration of the RR interval series is(More)
This study presents an alternative approach to approximate entropy (ApEn) threshold value (r) selection. There are two limitations of traditional ApEn algorithm: (1) the occurrence of undefined conditional probability (CPu) where no template match is found and (2) use of a crisp tolerance (radius) threshold ‘r’. To overcome these limitations, CPu is(More)
Detection of the boundaries of electrocardiogram (ECG) characteristic waves with a reasonable accuracy has been a difficult task. As a classical statistical pattern recognition algorithm characterized with high accuracy and stability, KNN has been proposed for locating the waveform boundaries (the onsets and offsets of P, QRS, and T waves) in ECG signals.(More)
