Lund, Sweden, 1997.
The aim is to determine the type of arrhythmia from
the ECG recordings.
4. Relevant Information:
This database contains 279 attributes, 206 of which are linear
valued and the rest are nominal.
Concerning the study of H. Altay Guvenir: "The aim is to distinguish
between the presence and absence of cardiac arrhythmia and to
classify it in one of the 16 groups. Class 01 refers to 'normal'
ECG classes 02 to 15 refers to different classes of arrhythmia
and class 16 refers to the rest of unclassified ones. For the
time being, there exists a computer program that makes such a
classification. However there are differences between the
cardiolog's and the programs classification. Taking the
cardiolog's as a gold standard we aim to minimise this difference
by means of machine learning tools."
The names and id numbers of the patients were recently
removed from the database.
