New Efficient Technique for Compression of ECG Signal

Nidhal K. El Abbadi and Abbas M. Al-Bakry

Data compression is a common requirement for most of the computerized applications. There are number of data compression algorithms, which are dedicated to compress different data formats. This paper examines lossless data compression algorithm for ECG data by using new method to process the ECG image strip, and compares their performance. We confirming that the proposed strategy exhibits competitive performances compared with the most popular compressors used for ECG compression.

Keywords: Data compression, ECG, compression ratio, image compression, lossy compression , lossless compression.
