In this paper, a neuro-fuzzy classification method is used for identifications of ECG signals. A feature extraction method with a QRS like filter (first order Gaussian derivative filter) is used. Five standard parameters (energy, mean value, standard deviation, maximum and minimum) are extracted from these disease features and then used as inputs for the neuro-fuzzy classification system. The ECG signals are imported from the standard MIT-BIH database. Five types of ECG signals are used for

The proposed system combines the neural network adaptive capabilities and fuzzy inference system with the suitable filter design to give a promising classification accuracy of 99%.
