Far too many people are dying from stroke or other heart related diseases each year. Early detection of abnormal heart rhythm could trigger the timely presentation to the emergency department or outpatient unit. Smartphones are an integral part of everyone’s life and they form the ideal basis for mobile monitoring and real-time analysis of signals related to the human heart. In this work, we investigated the performance of arrhythmia classification systems using only features calculated from the time instances of individual heart beats. We built a sinusoidal model using N (N = 10, 15, 20) consecutive RR intervals to predict the (N+1)th RR interval. The integration of the innovative sinusoidal regression feature, together with the amplitude and phase of the proposed sinusoidal model, led to an increase in the mean class-dependent classification accuracies. Best mean class-dependent classification accuracies of 90% were achieved using a Naïve Bayes classifier. Well-performing realtime analysis arrhythmia classification algorithms using only the time instances of individual heart beats could have a tremendous impact in reducing healthcare costs and reducing the high number of deaths related to cardiovascular diseases.
