The first step towards detection of valvular heart diseases from heart sound signal (phonocardiogram) is segmentation. A segmentation algorithm provides the location of the first and second heart sounds which in turn helps to locate and analyse the murmur. Established phonocardiogram based segmentation methods use an electrocardiographic (ECG) signal as a continuous auxiliary input in a complex instrumentation setup. This paper proposes an automatic segmentation method that does not require any… CONTINUE READING
