This paper presents a novel method for Heart Sound (HS) cancellation from Lung Sound (LS) records. The method uses the multiscale product of the wavelet coefficients of the original signal to detect HS-included segments. Once the HS segments are identified, the method removes them from the wavelet coefficients at every level and estimates the created gaps by using a set of linear prediction filters. It is shown that if the segment to be predicted is stationary, a final record with no audible artifacts such as clicks can be reconstructed using this approach. The results were promising for HS removal from LS records and showed no hampering of the main components of the LS. The results were confirmed both qualitatively by listening to the reconstructed signal and quantitatively by spectral analysis
