Ischemic heart disease (IHD) is one of the toughest challenges to doctors in-making right decisions due to its skimpy symptoms and complexity. We have analyzed IHD data from 65 patients to provide an aid for decision-making. Decision trees give potent structural information about the data and thereby serve as a powerful data mining tool. Support vector machines serve as excellent classifiers and predictors and can do so with high accuracy. Our tree based classifier uses non-linear proximal support vector machines (PSVM). The accuracy is very high (100% for training data) and the tree is small and precise.
