R peak delineation is fundamental step in any application implicating electrocardiogram (ECG) signal. ECG is non stationary and non linear. Hence, linear transforms like short time fourier transform, wavelet transform and chirplet transform may be inadequate to represent ECG signal and consequently for R peak delineation. Polynomial chirplet transform (PCT) models the frequency into a higher order polynomial to enhance the representation of non stationary signals whose frequency vary non linearly with time. In this paper, PCT based R peak delineation method using adaptive threshold is proposed. The performance of the proposed algorithm is evaluated on ECG ID data base taken from physionet data bank. This work also presents a comparative study of QRS detection methods employing the uni scale family of time frequency analysis methods, short time fourier transform, chirplet transform, stockwell transform, wigner ville distribution, and pseudo wigner ville distribution out of which stockwell transform, pseudo wigner ville distribution along with adaptive threshold are applied to QRS detection for the first time. The results show that the proposed method outperforms the competitors in terms of sensitivity, specificity and detection error rate. © 2016 IEEE.
