Irregular heartbeat results in heart diseases. Cardiac deaths are most seen across the globe. Detecting the heart problems in early stage can reduce the death rate. Electrocardiogram (ECG) is one of the most popular method for diagnosing different arrhythmias. Arrhythmia means irregular activity of heart or abnormal heart rhythm. In this paper, cardiac signal peaks P-wave, QRS complex and T-wave are detected for classifying the type of arrhythmia. These are the main components of ECG signal. P-wave is of very small duration, it is ex- plains about the atrial depolarization. The QRS complex may include combination of Q-wave, R-wave, and S-wave. But every QRS complex may not contain Q-R-S waves. It explains about ventricular depolarization. Whereas T wave is about ventricular re-polarization. S-Golay filter is used for denoising. This is used for smoothing the data which thereby, increases the precision of data without distortion of signal tendency. The patient data is collected from MIT-BIH Arrhythmia database for analysis. The simulation is done in Matlab software
