ABSTRACT
Apart from accidents, myocardial infarction is the most common reason of sudden deaths. As the time from the onset of myocardial infarc-tion to the start of treatment is very crucial, quick diagnosis is essential. The paper proposes a novel, easily deployable, cheap and non-invasive technique for the quick confirmative diagnostic tool. The changes in the ECG signal of the patient suffering from myocardial infarction are different to that compared with the ECG of the normal patient. The degree of variation can be used as a diagnostic tool. With the advent of computer and signal processing technology, a confirmative diagnostic tool is developed and can be made deployable in the ambulatory services. This will help to reduce the time gap between the onset of symptoms and actual treatment for the disease. If the confirmatory test is positive, the paramedical personnel can begin with the preparatory treatment before the physician is available
