Analysis of ECG Signaling Using Wavelet Transform
O. P. Singh,K. K Singh,G. R. Mishra,Deepak Tiwari
International Journal of Engineering Innovations and Research , 2013,
Abstract: Analysis and monitoring of ElectroCardioGram (ECG) gives information about the activities of the heart. Phenomena such as ECG contraction movement of body, respiration, power line interference, high frequency interference generate noise in signaling, which restricts the extraction of information from generated signal. For de-noising of ECG, wavelet transform technique has been implemented. ECG signal sampled at 500 Hz is taken as an input signal which has to be de-noised using Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) technique. In this paper, we have decomposed the ECG signal up to the level three and then threshold the signal. The ECG signals with noise and without noise have been plotted. The de-noised ECG signal give better clearity as compared to noisy one that would help the experts to diagnose the patient in better ways. The simulation of the results is done with the help of MATLAB.

Abstract: In this paper a very intelligent tool with low computational complexity is presented for Electroencephalogram (ECG) signal classification. The proposed classifier is based on Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) and Probabilistic Neural Network (PNN). The novelty of this approach is that signal statistics, morphological analysis and DWT of the histogram of signal (density estimation) altogether have been used to achieve a higher recognition rate. ECG signals and their density estimation are decomposed into sub-classes using DWT. A PNN is used to classify ECG signals using statistical discriminating features which are extracted from ECG and its sub-classes. Experimental results on five classes of ECG signals from MIT-BIH arrhythmia database show that the proposed method learns very fast, low computational complexity, and a very high performance compared to the previous methods.

Abstract: The evaluation of distortion diagnosis using Wavelet function for Electrocardiogram (ECG), Electroencephalogram (EEG) and Phonocardiography (PCG) is not novel. However, some of the technological and economic issues remain challenging. The work in this paper is focusing on the reduction of the noise interferences and analyzes different kinds of ECG signals. Furthermore, a physiological monitoring system with a programming model for the filtration of ECG is presented. Kaiser based Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filter is used for noise reduction and identification of R peaks based on Peak Detection Algorithm (PDA). Two approaches are implemented for detecting the R peaks; Amplitude Threshold Value (ATV) and Peak Prediction Technique (PPT). Daubechies wavelet transform is applied to analyze the ECG of driver under stress, arrhythmia and sudden cardiac arrest signals. From the obtained results, it was found that the PPT is an effective and efficient technique in detecting the R peaks compared to ATV.

Abstract: In the present paper we have reported a wavelet based time-frequency multiresolution analysis of an ECG signal. The ECG (electrocardiogram), which records hearts electrical activity, is able to provide with useful information about the type of Cardiac disorders suffered by the patient depending upon the deviations from normal ECG signal pattern. We have plotted the coefficients of continuous wavelet transform using Morlet wavelet. We used different ECG signal available at MIT-BIH database and performed a comparative study. We demonstrated that the coefficient at a particular scale represents the presence of QRS signal very efficiently irrespective of the type or intensity of noise, presence of unusually high amplitude of peaks other than QRS peaks and Base line drift errors. We believe that the current studies can enlighten the path towards development of very lucid and time efficient algorithms for identifying and representing the QRS complexes that can be done with normal computers and processors.

Abstract: Failure diagnosis is an important component of the Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) activities for most engineering systems. Rolling element bearings are the most common cause of rotating machinery failure. The existence of the amplitude modulation and noises in the faulty bearing vibration signal present challenges to effective fault detection method. The wavelet transform has been widely used in signal de-noising due to its extraordinary time-frequency representation capability. In this paper, we proposed new approach for bearing fault detection based on the autocorrelation of wavelet de-noised vibration signal through a wavelet base function derived from the bearing impulse response. To improve the fault detection process the wavelet parameters (damping factor and center frequency) are optimized using maximization kurtosis criteria to produce wavelet base function with high similarity with the impulses generated by bearing defects, that leads to increase the magnitude of the wavelet coefficients related to the fault impulses and enhance the fault detection process. The results show the effectiveness of the proposed technique to reveal the bearing fault impulses and its periodicity for both simulated and real rolling bearing vibration signals.

Abstract: this paper presents fpga design of ecg compression by using the discrete wavelet transform (dwt) and one lossless encoding method. unlike the classical works based on off-line mode, the current work allows the real-time processing of the ecg signal to reduce the redundant information. a model is developed for a fixed-point convolution scheme which has a good performance in relation to the throughput, the latency, the maximum frequency of operation and the quality of the compressed signal. the quantization of the coefficients of the filters and the selected fixed-threshold give a low error in relation to clinical applications.

Abstract: Here we present a method of QT interval meas-urement for Physionet's online QT Challenge ECG database using the combination of wavelet and time plane feature extraction mechanisms. For this we mainly combined two previous works one done using the Daubechies 6 wavelet and one time plane based with modifications in their algorithms and inclusion of two more wavelets (Daubechies 8 and Symlet 6). But found that out of these three wavelets Daube-chies 6 and 8 gives the best output and when averaged with the interval of time plane feature extraction method it gives least percentage of error with respect to the median reference QT interval as specified by Physionet. Our modified time plane feature extraction scheme along with the wavelet method together produces best re-sults for automated QT wave measurement as its regular verification is important for analyzing cardiac health. For the V2 chest lead particularly whose QT wave is of tremendous significance we have tested on 530 recordings of Physionet. This is because delay in cardiac repolarization causes ventricular tachyarrhythmias as well as Torsade de pointes (TdP). A feature of TdP is pronounced prolongation of the QT interval in the supraventricular beat preceding the ar-rhythmia. TdP can degenerate into ventricular fibrillation, leading to sudden death.

Abstract: We have developed a method focusing on ECG signal de-noising using Independent component analysis (ICA). This approach combines JADE source separation and binary decision tree for identification and subsequent ECG noise removal. In order to to test the efficiency of this method comparison to standard filtering a wavelet- based de-noising method was used. Freely data available at Physionet medical data storage were evaluated. Evaluation criteria was root mean square error (RMSE) between original ECG and filtered data contaminated with artificial noise. Proposed algorithm achieved comparable result in terms of standard noises (power line interference, base line wander, EMG), but noticeably significantly better results were achieved when uncommon noise (electrode cable movement artefact) were compared.

International Journal of Engineering Science and Technology , 2011,
Abstract: ECG signals are non-stationary, pseudo periodic in nature and whose behavior changes with time. The proper processing of ECG signal and its accurate detection is very much essential since it determines thecondition of the heart. The analysis of ECG signal requires the information both in time and frequency, for clinical diagnosis. Hence the wavelet transforms becomes handy for analyzing these types of the signals. In this paper we have given an overview of some wavelet techniques published in journals and conferences since 2005 onwards for processing the ECG and also we have compared the performance, advantages and limitations of these techniques.
ECG Baseline Wandering Reduction Using Discrete Wavelet Transform
K. Daqrouq
Asian Journal of Information Technology , 2012,
Abstract: The aim of this study is to use discrete wavelet transform (DWT) for ECG signal processing, specifically for reduction of ECG baseline wandering. The main reasons for using discrete wavelet transform are the properties of good representation nonstationary signals such as ECG signal and the possibility of dividing the signal into different bands of frequency. This makes possible the detection and the reduction of ECG baseline wandering in low frequency subsignals. For testing presented method, were used two original ECG signal types; ECG signals recorded in our university and ECG signals taken from MIT-BIH arrhythmia database. The method has been compared with traditional methods such FIR and on-line averaging method and more advanced method such as wavelet adaptive filter (WAF) . It was noticed that presented method is [1] superior to WAF in terms of signal quality and ST-segment distortion, because it cuts the drift from each beat basing on the PQ-segment level.
