A Review of R Peak Detection Techniques of Electrocardiogram (ECG)

A. Yadav, N. Grover


Heart disease is one of the trivial issues regarding health problem over the last few decades in India. Numerous methods have been developed with still-ongoing modifications and ideas to observe and evaluate ECG signals based on each heart beat. Majority of research revolves around arrhythmia classification, heart rate monitoring and blood pressure measurements that require highly accurate assessments of rhythm disorders which can be possible by measuring QRS complex of ECG signal, so accurate QRS detection methods are very important to be utilized. There have been proposed many approaches to find out the R peak detection to analyze the ECG signals in past few years. Most recent and efficient techniques of R peak detection have been reviewed in this paper. Techniques which have been reviewed in this paper are Pan and Tompkins, Wavelet Transform, Empirical Mode Decomposition, Hilbert-Huang Transform, Fuzzy logic systems, Artificial neural networks.
