Abstract

The electrocardiogram (ECG) signal is considered as one of the most important tools in clinical practice in order to assess the cardiac status of patients. In this study, an improved QRS (Q wave, R wave, S wave) complex detection algorithm is proposed based on the multiresolution wavelet analysis. In the first step, high frequency noise and baseline wander can be distinguished from ECG data based on their specific frequency contents. Hence, removing corresponding detail coefficients leads to enhance the performance of the detection algorithm. After this, the author's method is based on the power spectrum of decomposition signals for selecting detail coefficient corresponding to the frequency band of the QRS complex. Hence, the authors have proposed a function g as the combination of the selected detail coefficients using two parameters λ1 and λ2, which correspond to the proportion of the frequency ranges of the selected detail compared with the frequency range of the QRS complex. The proposed algorithm is evaluated using the whole arrhythmia database. It presents considerable capability in cases of low signal-to-noise ratio, high baseline wander and abnormal morphologies. The results of evaluation show the good detection performance; they have obtained a global sensitivity of 99.87%, a positive predectivity of 99.79% and a percentage error of 0.34%.
