Implementation of The Variable Data Transmission System of Abnormal ECG with Activity State

Yun-Hong Noh, Ji-Yun Seo, Hosoo Nam, Do-Un Jeong


The cause of death among modern people are the highest death rate from heart disease and monitoring and management of ECG signals to cope with these heart diseases is necessary. ECG is a bio-signal that is an important criterion for determining the presence or absence of cardiac activity states. Recently, an attempt has been made to analyze and compare biological signals and physical activity information for accurate analysis and diagnosis. However, in order to measure the ECG data for a long time, a storage space of several Mbytes and a wide bandwidth for wireless transmission are required. To solve this problem,  cost, time, and high-performance systems are additional required. The implemented system minimizes the amount of packets generated during wireless data transmission as well as abnormal heartbeat detection and activity information, and enables monitoring of heart activity status and activity information in real time through a smart phone. In order to evaluate the data packet transmission and restoration performance of the system implemented in this research, the MIT / BIH Arrhythmia Database 100 record was embedded in the system controller section and the packet was transmitted to the smartphone. In addition, ECG evaluation experiments were conducted according to the activity status during daily life. As a result of the performance evaluation, both experiments confirmed the data packet generated and signal restoration performance.
