Abstract

Compression of Electrocardiogram signal is important for digital Holters recording, signal archiving, transmission over communication channels and Telemedicine. This paper introduces an effective real-time compression scheme to overcome the limitation of payload size of the transmission channel. This scheme utilizes the Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT), Bit-Field Preserving (BFP) and Running Length Encoding (RLE) methods which showed efficient compression results. The scheme dynamically checks if the compressed packets fit into the available payload. If not, the original signal will be divided into blocks and each block will be re-compressed again. The dynamic scheme was tested on large and small number of samples. The results show that a small block of 64, 128 or 256 samples will not affect the compression performance and no distortion occurred on the reconstructed signal.
