In this study, wavelet entropy, which is calculated from the wavelet transform coefficients obtained from heart rate variability data, is used to distinguish the control group from the patients with congestive heart failure. Wavelet entropies are obtained from 29 patients with congestive heart failure and 54 subjects in the control group. Standard heart rate variability measurements are also calculated for the whole dataset. Finally, linear discriminant analysis is used to evaluate the performance of measurements in classifying these two groups.
