Nowadays bio medical signal processing is annewly emerging active research area spanning several domains. Biomedical signals originate from physiological activities of organisms, ranging from gene to tissue and organ images. These signal processing aims at extracting more meaningful information from biomedical signals. With the aid of biomedical signal processing, with this physicians can diagnose distinct illnesses more promptly[2]. This paper describes easyand convenient diagnosis (normal or abnormal)of heartbeat using frequency domain technique. The more powerful transform technique which is exploited to detect abnormal heart beat is Wavelet Transform. Thus transform subdivides the signal into four subbands and provides simultaneously both time and frequency domain information. The statistical parameters like entropy, histogram, mean, mode and range are computed for heartbeat signal by Discrete Wavelet Transform and Wavelet Packet Transform. The hypothesis is that these parameters determine the abnormalities present in the heartbeat and physician can decide the person's health condition. © 2017 IEEE.
