Efficient and reliable electrocardiogram (ECG) compression system can increase the processing speed of real-time ECG transmission as well as reduce the amount of data storage in long-term ECG recording. In the present paper, a software based effective ECG data compression algorithm is proposed. The whole algorithm is written in C- platform. The algorithm is tested on various ECG data of all the 12 leads taken from PTB Diagnostic ECG Database (PTB-DB). In this compression methodology, all the R… CONTINUE READING
