Abstract

Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) has become the top killer in many developed country as its survival rate is extreme low. SCD is caused by the ventricular arrhythmias such as ventricular tachycardia (VT). Implantable Cardiac Defibrillator (ICD) is recognized as gold standard for the prevention of SCD. Therefore, it is important to screen patients who are at high risk of SCD, to be the receiver of ICD. MATLAB had been used in establishing the software to detect Heart Rate Variability (HRV) parameter from ECG. This parameter combines with VT condition, post Myocardial Infarction and other medical parameters, play role to screen the patients according to the SCD selection rule chart. The graphical user interface (GUI) has been developed in order to indicate the result of the HRV parameter, ECG graph and the result of the eligibility of patient to be receiver of ICD.
