Abstract: Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is an important criterion to check the cardiac health. Sudden HRV signifies the unhealthy condition of the heart, particularly when the person is suffering from a cardiac disease. HRV parameters on different patients of different ages, gender and health conditions are observed using time domain, geometrical domain and frequency domain. Statistical comparison is done on three different databases MIT/BIH Normal Sinus Rhythm (NSR), MIT/BIH Arrhythmia (AR) and MIT/BIH Atrial Fibrillation (AF) using Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) technique. Features of all the three domains show weak, moderate or strong significant changes as per the relation during comparison with respective databases. The best features were selected among the various HRV features which will be used for classification in future.
