In this study,, classification of Normal and Extra systolic heart sounds (HS) have been carried out using in PASCAL Heart Sounds (HS) data base. The extrasystole is the HS that is produced by performing an extra beat in each heart cycle, unlike the heartbeat normal cycle. It can be felt by people as palpitations. Occurrence of these sounds in certain age groups may be the indication of tachycardia. In this study, firstly HS have been normalized at first. Then an elliptic filter has used for noise reduction. HS features have been obtained using Mel- Frequency Cepstrum Coefficients. These features have classified using Artificial Neural Network. In this study, 45 extra systoles heart sounds have used. 30 of them have been used as training data for classification while remaining 15 ones have been used for the test. Certainty, sensitivity, accuracy values have been calculated using confusion matrix. Classification success has been calculated as 90%.
