Quality Evaluation Techniques of Processing the ECG Signal

Mikhled Alfaouri and Khaled Daqrouq


In this research, methods to detect and evaluate the main parameters of the ECG signal are presented in order to improve its clinical properties. Two techniques are addressed in this research, Piecewise method and the Analytical Approach. These techniques are used to determine such as: percent (rms) difference (PRD), signal-noise-ratio (SNR) and the compression ratio (CR) which are used to evaluate the quality of ECG signals. The evaluation and processing of the methodology quality and the metrological point of view of ECG signal problems are subsequently obtained from detection and filtration. This technique has been successfully implemented to determine the legal accuracy rang of ECG signal for detection, filtration and compression.
