Cardiac arrhythmia indicates abnormal electrical activity of heart can be threat to human, so it has to be automatically identified for clinical diagnosis and treatment. This paper presents efficient and flexible software tool based on Matlab GUI to analyse ECG, extract features using Discrete Wavelet transform and by comparing them with normal ECG classify arrhythmia type. Proposed software tool is tested for multiple databases like MIT-BIH and Creighton University arrhythmia databases. Performance of software is tested with total of nineteen long length ECG samples, arrhythmias detected are Tachycardia, Bradycardia, Ventricular Tachycardia, Asystole, First degree heart block, and Second degree heart block from the results obtained algorithm has sensitivity of 94.12%, positive predictive of 88.9% and accuracy of 86.61%.the software tool along with detecting arrhythmia, helps in analysing ECG by provides different parameters of ECG like sampling frequency, PR, RR interval and QRS width.
