The irregularity in human heart beat indicate the disorders associated with it.Identifying the cause of arrhythmias is important in its treatment.The method of correcting shockable arrhythmias using Automatic External Defibrillators(AED) are of great demand in these days .The detection of arrhythmias and defibrillating the irregularity within minimum time fromthe ventricular fibrillation can considerably minimizes the death rate.Instances were reported in which the external defibrillator failed to act on time or interrupted the non-shockable rhythm as shockable. Research in this area is necessary to develop an effective algorithm that reduces this misrepresentation.The error rate can be minimised by combining various ECG parameters. It is preferable to use right combination of minimum number of parameters to minimise computation time and error rate. This paper uses ten ECG parameters in a combined manner for differentiating ventricular fibrillation and non ventricular fibrillation using Gaussian Support vector machine classifier.This project is simulated using MATLAB. On simulation the Balanced Error Rate is found to be around 7.5 percentage.
