Abstract: Filtration of ECG signal is an important part in the analysis and signal processing of ECG signal. There are different types of digital and analog filters available for the filtration of an ECG signal. And choosing the right filter order for different filters has always been a tough task in biomedical signal processing. This study aims to solve this problem of filter order optimization by cascading digital filters and evaluating their performance based on SNR using ECG-ID Database from PHYSIONET. Besides, this optimized filter order has been applied to both normal and abnormal QRS detected ECG signals to choose the right filter order based on average power received from PSD analysis. QRS detection has been performed by differentiation technique. In this study, design of the filters has been carried out using MATLAB software based FDA tool in both monitoring and diagnostic modes. This analysis has strong potential for analyzing low amplitude based biological signals like ECG or EEG.
