Analysis of Electrocardiogram (ECG) signal can lead to better detection of cardiac arrhythmia. The important steps involved in the ECG signal analysis include acquisition of data, pre-processing of signal to remove artefacts, feature extraction of attributes and finally identifying abnormalities. This work proposes an efficient implementation of the R-R interval-based ECG classification technique for detecting abnormalities in heart functioning. ECG signals from an online database (PhysioNet.org) was analysed after noise removal for R-R interval, as R peak has the maximum prominent amplitude in ECG wave. Deviation in the R-R interval values obtained from unhealthy was observed and compared with healthy subjects. This observation of cardiac activity can be visualised in our developed Graphical User Interface (GUI). The GUI platform requires only the input of the ECG signal that is to be analysed for abnormalities, which can provide the clinician with the result of cardiac abnormality classification and can help in diagnosis.
