There is a constant search for novel methods of classication and predicting cardiac rhythm disorders or arrhythmias. We prefer to classify them as wide complex tachyarrhythmia's or ventricular arrhythmias inclusive of malignant ventricular arrhythmias which with hemodynamic compromise is usually life threatening. Long term and fatality predictions warranting AICD implantation are already available. We have a novel method and robust algorithm with preprocessing and optimal feature selection from ECG signal analysis for such rhythm disorders. Variability of ECG recording makes predictability analysis challenging especially when execution time is of prime importance in tackling resuscitative attempts for MVA. Noisy data needs ltering and preprocessing for effective analysis. Portable devices need more of this ltering prior to data input. Deterministic probabilistic nite state automata (DPFA) which generates a probability strings from the broad morphologic patterns of an ECG can generate a classier data for the algorithm without preprocessing for atrial high rate episodes (AHRE). DPFA can be effectively used for atrial tachyarrhythmias for predictive analysis. The method we suggest is use of optimal classier set for prediction of malignant ventricular arrhythmias and use of DFPA for atrial arrhythmias. Here traditional practices of heart rate variability based support vector machine (SVM), discrete wavelet transform (DWT), principal component analysis (PCA), deep neural network (DNN), convoutional neural network (CNN) or CNN with long term memory (LSTM) can be outperformed.
