CardioVascular Diseases is one of the major cause of human deaths. The increasing threats of CVD can be early detected with various medical tests including electrocardiogram (ECG), and also 2D Echo,Stress Test. With the help of ECG signal, early detection of CVD is possible and proper medication can be provided for human life as and when needed. However to examine all these signals manually can be very much hectic, stressbuster and would require ample lot of time. Discrete wavelet transform (DWT) method combining with nonlinear features for automated characterization of CVDs will be main highlight in this research which will also help overcome manual ECG work. DWT subjects ECG signals upto five levels of normal, dilated cardiomyopathy(DCM), hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), myocardial infraction(MI) . DWT coefficients extracts fuzzy entropy, sample entropy, fractal dimension, and signal energy etc as relative wavelet. Our proposed methodology is inclusive of multiple CVD devices signal which helps us to increase the accuracy of the data and giving right prediction to save and help human life by taking proper medication.
