Paper Abstract

This paper presents a novel electrocardiogram (ECG) compression method based on adaptive Fourier decomposition (AFD). AFD is a newly developed signal decomposition approach, which can decompose a signal with fast convergence, and hence reconstruct ECG signals with high fidelity. Unlike most of the high performance algorithms, our method does not make use of any preprocessing operation before compression. Huffman coding is employed for further compression. Validated with 48 ECG recordings of MIT-BIH arrhythmia database, the proposed method achieves the compression ratio (CR) of 35.53 and the percentage root mean square difference (PRD) of 1.47% on average with N = 8 decomposition times and a robust PRD-CR relationship. The results demonstrate that the proposed method has a good performance compared with the state-of-the-art ECG compressors.
