Analysis process of electrocardiogram (ECG) is a major research interests in bio-medical signal processing. The reasons of this interest is the growth of cardiac health care activities all over the world and the rapid progress in digital computer technology which play an essential role to the detection of diseases at various stages from bio medical signals. The assessment process of diagnostic results for these bio medical signals heavily depends upon quantity, accuracy and speed. Computer based analysis is very useful in clinical therapy. In this Paper a method of analysis (ECG) signals using fractal features have been proposed and practical experiments have done to show that this method provides a good electronic diagnosis pattern for cardiac abnormality because it has been used by some specialist doctors to diagnose various types of diseases with accuracy. By the fact that ECG signals show a fractal patterns, it has been tried to find out a comparison between Katz’s and Higuchi’s method under fractal dimension (FD) of the ECG time series in a feature extraction phase. All ECG signals have been acquired from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MITBIH) arrhythmia database. The obtained results confirm the superiority of the Katz’s and Higuchi’s method to identify cardiac abnormality as compared to traditional one which is analyses of ECG signals based on morphology features and three ECG temporal features.(i.e. the QRS complex duration, the RR interval and the RR interval averaged over the ten last beats).
