Arrhythmia is one of the life-threatening heart diseases which is diagnosed and analyzed using electrocardiogram (ECG) recordings and other symptoms namely rapid heartbeat or chest-pounding, shortness of breath, near fainting spells, insufficient pumping of blood from the heart, etc along with sudden cardiac arrest. Arrhythmia records a hasty and aberrant ECG. In this implementation, the arrhythmia dataset is collected from the UCI machine learning repository and then classified the records into sixteen stated classes using multiclass classification. The large feature set of the dataset is reduced using improved feature selection techniques such as t-Distributed Stochastic Neighbor Embedding (TSNE), Principal Component Analysis (PCA), Uniform Manifold Approximation, and Projection (UMAP) and then an Ensemble Classifier is built to analyse the classification accuracy on arrhythmia dataset to conclude when and which approach gives optimal results.
