A new method is presented to identify Electrocardiogram (ECG) signals for abnormal heartbeats based on Prony's modeling algorithm and neural network. Hence, the ECG signals can be written as a finite sum of exponential depending on poles. Neural network is used to identify the ECG signal from the calculated poles. Algorithm classification including a multi-layer feed forward neural network using back propagation is proposed as a classifying model to categorize the beats into one of five types including normal sinus rhythm (NSR), ventricular couplet (VC), ventricular tachycardia (VT), ventricular bigeminy (VB), and ventricular fibrillation (VF).
