ECG arrhythmia classification using a 2-D convolutional neural network

by   Tae Joon Jun, et al.

In this paper, we propose an effective electrocardiogram (ECG) arrhythmia classification method using a deep two-dimensional convolutional neural network (CNN) which recently shows outstanding performance in the field of pattern recognition. Every ECG beat was transformed into a two-dimensional grayscale image as an input data for the CNN classifier. Optimization of the proposed CNN classifier includes various deep learning techniques such as batch normalization, data augmentation, Xavier initialization, and dropout. In addition, we compared our proposed classifier with two well-known CNN models; AlexNet and VGGNet. ECG recordings from the MIT-BIH arrhythmia database were used for the evaluation of the classifier. As a result, our classifier achieved 99.05 our CNN classifier, 10-fold cross-validation was performed at the evaluation which involves every ECG recording as a test data. Our experimental results have successfully validated that the proposed CNN classifier with the transformed ECG images can achieve excellent classification accuracy without any manual pre-processing of the ECG signals such as noise filtering, feature extraction, and feature reduction.
