Hi...

I have denoised the ECG signal, calculated the SNR, now i to do parameter extraction/ characterization of ECG signals using wavelets. I have no clue where to begin it from or how to even go about it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ayush, do you have a particular algorithm in mind and you are trying to implement it in MATLAB? In other words, is this a MATLAB question, or an algorithm question?

Hii Wayne,

I have to write a code in MATLAB regarding the extraction of ECG parameters, with the help of wavelets. As such i have no algorithm in my mind, cause i really dont know how to go about it. I dont know where to begin from or how to do it. So i guess its a MATLAB question.

Then read the 'Getting Started' section of the matlab docs.

Rune ...
Thanks for the advice ... but i know what MATLAB is and i have been using it for quite sometime now ... its just that i dont know which funtion to use and how to start this particular part in ECG signal processing... that is what i was asking for !! ...

Hi Ayush, I think if you do not have an algorithm in mind than you should read the literature on ECG classification using wavelets. If you had an algorithm in mind, then it's a MATLAB question. But it seems to me you need to be able to articulate what you are trying to do first and then how to implement in the MATLAB language is a secondary question.

Hii wayne ...

Well i wrote an algorithm
1) load ECG signal
2) 4th level wavelet decomposition
3) Detection of R wave(as local maxima)
4) R-R distances
5) Detection of Q, S points (as local minimum points before and after R wave)
6)Detection of T wave
7) Determination of P wave
8) compare all the parameters with the known theoretical vales and determine the diagnosis.

I have done 4th level decomposition . I'm not able to understand how do i detect the starting of the QRS wave or T wave or P wave ... not able to understand how do i detect them ?

Your questions are not Matlab questions.
I do a lot of wavelet decomposition, but I have no idea what R wave or
QRS waves are.
They are terms in your field.
You need to ask someone who has experience in the ECG field.
You will have to be very lucky to find such a person on this forum.

Hi Aayush,

I am exactly trying to do this. I have real time ECG data and I want to extract the features exactly using same algorithm you have mentioned. Can you tell me how did you do 4th level wavelet decomposition?

May I know how did you achieve the result?
I would appreciate if you will help me.
Thank you.

Hi, If you have the Wavelet Toolbox, you can use wavedec() to obtain the critically-sampled (decimated) DWT, or swt() and ndwt() to obtain a nondecimated wavelet transform.

Hey Mitul

looking for the following functions in the MATLAB help files and you will be able to find more on them, here i'm explaining you which functions i have used, the order and why ...

wavedec - for performing multi-level wavelet decomposition of the given ECG signal.

appcoef - extracting the approximation coefficients of the signal.( store them in cA4,cA3,cA2,cA1)

detcoef - extracting the detail coefficients of the signal.(store them in cD4,cD3,cD2,cD1)

wrcoef - reconstructing the level 4 approximation & the details ( A1,A2,A3,A4,D1,D2,D3,D4)

ddencmp - Denoising the signal
wdencmp - Denoising the signal

i had used them in the same order, look into the matlab help files, if you need any other help do let me know

ciao

Hi Mitul,
Have you read the documentation for the functions we have pointed you to?
The Wavelet Toolbox documentation contains a number of examples/demos showing you exactly how to do what you describe. Write back with code examples where you get stuck.

Wavelet Toolbox is an add-on product that you will need to purchase
separately. If you're using the Student Version of MATLAB, the Add-on
Products page indicates it is available for Student Version:

http://www.mathworks.com/academia/student_version/companion.html

and you can purchase and download it via the Store link in the upper-right
corner of that page.

If you're not using Student Version, talk to the person or group that
maintains your license about adding this toolbox to your license.

You can plot the coefficients as any other vector in MATLAB. Are you asking how you plot them on the same graph as your original waveform with the correct spacing?

Yeah and if I plot that vector will I have extracted features??? its getting mroe n more confusion.

Hi Mitul, the Wavelet Toolbox makes these things very easy for you. How you plot the coefficients depends on whether you want to align them with features in the original waveform. If you do and you use the "raw" coefficients, you have to space them correctly if you used the decimated DWT. Alternatively, you can use wrcoef() to reconstruct an orthogonal projection of the signal onto the appropriate subspace.

For example, note how you can isolate the discontinuity in freqbrk by overlaying the projection obtained with the level-1 detail coefficients.


load freqbrk;
[C,L] = wavedec(freqbrk,4,'db4');
det1 = wrcoef('d',C,L,'db4',1);
plot(freqbrk,'k');
hold on;
plot(det1,'b');

thank you wayne for your help....i plot my signal but i can understand my original signal but i cant understand what det1 represents in blue colour?? how can i upload my picture here so that i can show u the graph?

Hi Mitul, det1 in my example are the wavelet coefficients at level 1 in the multiresolution, these are the finest-scale coefficients, and approximately represent frequency content in the signal in the (Fs/4, Fs/2] interval where Fs is the sampling frequency.

The detail coefficients at level J are an approximate bandpass filtering of the input signal into the band
(Fs/2^(J+1)),Fs/2^J]
You have to keep in mind that this is an approximation and the accuracy of this approximation is heavily dependent on the wavelet used.

Hi Wayne,

you are using to technical words for wavelet transform, i just came to know about the word wavelet transform 4 adys before. To understand whatever you are saying I need to understand basics of wavelet transform.
Can you tell me how can i enrich my knowledge of wavelet transform related to my work?? i really appreciate your time and efforts to help me.

big big thanks

Hello Ayush,
 Did you finally get code for ECG parameter extraction? IF you hv it cud you share it with me? I am also badly needing the code! plz help me out! my eid is dipti.dpatil@yahoo.com

Thanks

Hi Ayush,

I am also doing a survey on how to extract the ECG parameters. can you please send me the code to my mail, my ID is vinod.nagappa@gmail.com. I have also done with removal of noise, please share your code for denoising the ECG so that i can compare the performance of my design.

Thanks in advance
Vinod
