Paper Title: A simple acute myocardial infarction (Heart Attack) prediction system using clinical data and data mining techniques
Acute Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack), a Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) leads to Ischemic Heart Disease(IHD) is one of the major killers worldwide. A proficient approach is proposed in this paper that can predict the chances of heart attack when a person is bearing chest pain or equivalent symptoms. We have developed a prototype by integrating clinical data collected from patients admitted in different hospitals attacked by Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI). 25 attributes related to symptoms of heart attack are collected and analyzed where chest pain, palpitation, breathlessness, syncope with nausea, sweating, vomiting are the prominent symptoms of a person getting heart attack. The data mining techniques namely decision tree and random forest are used to analyze heart attack dataset where classification of more common symptoms related to heart attack is done using c4.5 decision tree algorithm, alongside, random forest is applied to improve the accuracy of the classification result of heart attack prediction. A guiding system to suspect the chest pain as having heart attack or not may help many people who tend to neglect the chest pain and later land up in catastrophe of heart attacks.
