Abstract: A standard 12-Lead electrocardiogram (ECG) is one of the most commonly used cardiac diagnostic test. Each of the 12 ECG leads records the electrical activity of the heart from a different angle, and therefore align with different anatomical areas of the heart. This research analyzes multiple ECG leads for multiple anomaly detection and combines the results to produce higher accuracy and to interpret a wider range of cardiac events.
