In this study, the development of Cardioid based graph electrocardiogram heart abnormalities classification technique is presented. ECG signals in this work were attained from a public online database UCD Sleep Apnea database (UCDB) with sampling rate of 250 Hz. Each recording has 60 seconds of electrocardiogram signals. Unique features were extracted using the Pan Tompkins algorithm, later Cardioid based graph was formed as the result of the differentiation process. The various shapes of closed-loop created were then observed. From the Cardioid loop, we evaluated the area and standard deviation to differentiate between normal and abnormal heartbeats. As a result, the area, standard deviation, and mean values of abnormal heartbeat were twice the value of a normal heartbeat thus indicating the differences between two types of heart morphologies. Thus, the output of the study suggests the proof-of-concept of our proposed mechanisms to detect heart abnormalities and has the potential to act as an alternative to the current techniques.
