Previous studies on arrhythmia were used to diagnose the abnormally fast, slow, or irregular heart rhythm through ECG (Electrocardiogram), which is one of the biological signals. ECG has the form of P-QRS-T wave, and many studies have been done to extract the features of QRS-complex and R-R interval. However, in the conventional method, the P-QRS-T wave must be accurately detected, and the feature value is extracted through the P-QRS-T wave. If an error occurs in the peak detection or feature extraction process, the accuracy becomes very low. Therefore, in this paper, we implement a system that can perform PVC (Premature Ventricular Contraction) and PAC (Premature Atrial Contraction) classification by using P-QRS-T peak value without feature extraction process using deep neural network. The parameters were updated for PVC and PAC classification in the learning process using P-QRS-T peak without feature value. As a result of the performance evaluation, we could confirm higher accuracy than the previous studies and omit the process of feature extraction, and the time required for the preprocessing process to construct the input data set is relatively reduced.
