A consulting system is presented in this paper, based on an Expert System for Electrocardiogram (ECG) diagnosis. This system can be used also as an automated diagnosis tool, as well as, a training tool for the interpretation of ECG signals. The system can accept ECG signals from patients or from ECG libraries and produce two answers, corresponding to the physician’s data and to the automatically measured data.
