Abstract—According to WHO (World Health Organization), 17.9 million people die every year because of Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and it accounts for 31% of all global deaths. Hence, the diagnosis of such common and deadly diseases are becoming very critical. In this study, we proposed a method that uses Fisher's Linear Discriminant Analysis (FLDA) for dimension reduction and Artificial Neural Network (ANN) for obtaining an efficient CVD diagnostic model. Performance evaluations based on publicly available datasets show that the accuracy of the proposed method is 97%, which is superior than the state of the art.

Index Terms—Cardiovascular heart disease, cardiovascular artery disease, machine learning, artificial neural network, linear discriminant analysis, multilayer perceptron neural network.
