The ECG finds its importance in the detection of cardiac abnormalities. ECG signal processing in an embedded platform is a challenge which has to deal with several issues. Noise reduction in ECG signal is an Important task of biomedical science. ECG signals are very low frequency signals of about 0.5Hz-100Hz. There are various artifacts which get added in these signals and change the original signal, therefore there is a need of removal of these artifacts from the original signal. The noises that commonly disturb the basic electrocardiogram are power line interference, electrode contact noise, motion artifacts, electromyography (EMG) noise, and instrumentation noise. These noises can be classified according to their frequency content. In this paper, the discrete wavelet transform (DWT) at level 8 was applied to the ECG signals and decomposition of the ECG signals was performed. In this paper we have used bi-orthogonal wavelet transform for denoising ECG signal and also showed that it gives maximum efficient idea for noise removing process. The simulation is done in MATLAB environment. The experiments are carried out on MIT-BIH database. Performance analysis was performed by evaluating Mean Square Error (MSE), Signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), Peak Signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR), and visua inspection over the denoised signal from each algorithm.
