Heart disease is wide spread. This paper presents a system
that detects heart murmurs using signal processing
techniques and artificial neural networks. The system is
robust enough to detect heart sound data from many
sources using different collection techniques. Frequencies
below and in the range of normal human hearing are
found to be important in the detection process. The
system is a helpful step in the development of bringing
engineering techniques to physicians to assist in detection
of some heart diseases.
