Abstract

Most of death causes are related to cardiovascular disease. In fact, there are several anomalies afflicting the heart beat, for instance heart murmur or artefact. We propose a method for heart disease detection. By gathering a set of feature obtainable directly from cardiac sounds, we consider this feature vector as input for a deep neural network to discriminate whether a cardiac sound is belonging to an healthy or to a patient with a cardiac disease. The experiment we performed demonstrated the effectiveness of the proposed approach in real-world environment.
