Towards a Decision Support System for Disorders of the Cardiovascular System - Diagnosing and Evaluation of the Treatment Efficiency

Anton Dolganov, Vladimir Kublanov

Abstract

The study describes a preliminary stage of the decision support system development for cardiovascular system disorders. As the clinical model of the disorders, the arterial hypertension was used. The study consisted of two steps: diagnosing of the arterial hypertension and an evaluation of the treatment efficiency during the neuro-electrostimulation application. For the diagnosing part, a clinical study was conducted involving heart rate variability signals recording while performing tilt-test functional load. Performance of different machine learning techniques and feature selection strategies in task of binary classification (healthy volunteers and patients suffering from arterial hypertension) were compared. The genetic programming feature selection and quadratic discriminant analysis classifier reached the highest classification accuracy. Best feature combinations were used to evaluate a treatment efficiency. The results indicate the potential of the proposed decision support system.
