Cardiac event detection is one of the essential steps in cardiac signal processing, analysis and disease diagnosis. Complete morphology of cardiac waves (P–QRS–T) extracted from the location of R-peak is helpful for feature extraction of many applications related to cardiac diseases classification. Therefore cardiac event detection is a prerequisite for reliable cardiac disease diagnosis, and hence it should be robust and time-efficient so that it can be used for real-time signal processing. This work proposes a novel method for R-peak detection using curvelet transform (CT). It demonstrates the use of curvelet energy with an adaptive threshold to estimate the boundaries around R-peak. The exact R-peak locations are then detected from the input signal with the predefined estimated boundaries. The proposed method is evaluated and analysed with all 48 records from the MIT-BIH arrhythmia database. The experimental analysis result yields an average sensitivity of 99.62%, average positive productivity of 99.74% and average detection error rate of 0.6%. The results obtained have higher than or comparable indices to those in literature. Thus, the proposed system yields high accuracy, low complexity and high processing speed.
