Abstract
Arrhythmia has recently emerged as one of the major causes of death in Koreans. Premature Ventricular Contraction (PVC) is the most common arrhythmia that can be found in clinical practice, and it may be a precursor to dangerous arrhythmia, such as paroxysmal insomnia, ventricular fibrillation, and coronary artery disease. Therefore, we need for a method that can detect abnormal heart beat and diagnose arrhythmia early. We extracted the features corresponding to the QRS pattern from the subject’s ECG signal and classify the ventricular premature contraction waveform using the features. Based on the error backpropagation algorithm, weights and biases were updated through learning data learning to determine weights and weights that can classify premature ventricular contractions. The final weight and bias values were used to classify normal and premature venticular contraction waveforms in ECG waveforms.
