In this chapter, the first stage for detecting heart disorders (that is, noise removal) is explained. Two intelligent approaches based on Self Organizing Map (SOM) and Particle swarm Optimization (PSO) are used to train the feedforward neural network for noise removal. The trained ANNs are used to find the cutoff frequency. Then the found cutoff frequency is applied by a bandpass FIR filter for ECG noise removal.
