An ECG is a diagnostic technique that examines and records the heart's electrical impulses. It is easy to categorise and prevent computational abstractions in the ECG signal using the conventional method for obtaining ECG features. It is a significant issue, but it is also a difficult and time-consuming chore for cardiologists and medical professionals. The proposed classifier eliminates all of the following limitations. Machine learning in healthcare equipment reduces moral transgressions. This study's primary purpose is to calculate the R-R interval and analyze the blockage utilising simple algorithms and approaches that give high accuracy. The MIT-BIH dataset may be used to rebuild the data. The acquired data may include both normal and abnormal ECGs. A Gabor filter is employed to generate a noiseless signal, and DCT-DOST is used to calculate the signal's amplitude. The amplitude is computed to detect any cardiac anomalies. A genetic algorithm derives the main highlights from the R peak and cycle segment length underlying the ECG signal. So, combining data with specific qualities maximises identification. The genetic algorithm aids in hereditary computations, which aids in multitarget improvement. Finally, Radial Basis Function Neural Network (RBFNN) is presented as an example. An efficient feedforward neural network lowers the number of local minima in the signal. It shows progress in identifying both normal and abnormal ECG signals.
