Electrocardiogram (ECG) is an important tool used by clinicians for successful diagnosis and detection of Arrhythmias, like Atrial Fibrillation (AF) and Atrial Flutter (AFL). In this manuscript, an efficient technique of classifying atrial arrhythmias from Normal Sinus Rhythm (NSR) has been presented. Autoregressive Modelling has been used to capture the features of the ECG signal, which are then fed as inputs to the neural network for classification. The standard database available at

Exhaustive experimental study has been carried out by extracting ECG samples of duration of 5 seconds, 10 seconds and 20 seconds. It provides an accuracy of 99% and 94.3% on training and test set respectively for 5 sec recordings. In 10 sec and 20 sec samples it shows 100% accuracy. Thus, the proposed method can be used to detect the arrhythmias in a small duration recordings with a fairly high accuracy.
