Heart Risk Estimation
There is no found a single heart risk assessment algorithm, comprised of different medical methods. Found
existing solutions able assess the risk only by single medical method, for instance by using ECG for
arrhythmia detection. Connecting different algorithm parts together, overall risk assessment score may be
Conceptual overview of heart risk detection algorithm.
Rule based algorithm designed as a voting system, each node designed to have coefficient value kx, which
is expressed as a risk weight. Coefficient values may be selected by significance order, highest value are the
most significant for the risk prediction. However, it can be only generalization and does not reveal that it can
work on different individuals.
Total heart risk (HR) calculated by the sum of all coefficients and compared by
threshold value, which is decide about risk existence. Threshold value T should be found experimentally
together with health care provider. In this case value greater than zero indicates about risk existence.
