ECG Signal, De-noising, Discrete Wavelet, AWGN Noise


An Electrocardiogram (ECG) describes the electrical activity of the heart recorded by electrodes placed on the body surface. ECG is a non-linear, non-stationary signal. Electrocardiogram is an important electrical activity as it is used for the primary diagnosis of heart abnormalities like the myocardial infarction, conduction defects, and arrhythmia. But real ECG signal is often contaminated by different noises. For the purpose of quality diagnosis, the ECG signal must be clearly de-noised to remove all noises. This paper presents a method for De-noising the noisy real ECG signal using wavelet transform. Different ECG signals from MIT/BIH arrhythmia database are used with added Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) which is common in ECG signal and effect on all frequency signals. The results were evaluated using MATLAB software. De-noised ECG signal is compared with original signal using Mean Square Error (MSE) and Signal to Noise ratio (SNR). MSE and SNR improvements for different noise coverage were calculated and compared for different filtering method from db4-db10 wavelet transform method.
