Heart disease is wide spread. This paper presents a system that detects heart murmurs using signal processing techniques and artificial neural networks. The system is robust enough to detect heart sound data from many sources using different collection techniques. Frequencies below and in the range of normal human hearing are found to be important in the detection process. The system is a helpful step in the development of bringing engineering techniques to physicians to assist in detection of some heart diseases.
