PREDICTION OF HEART DISEASE USING MACHINE LEARNING TECHNIQUES









Abstract

Cardiovascular diseases are the most common cause of death worldwide over the last few decades in the developed as well as underdeveloped and developing countries. Early detection of cardiac diseases and continuous supervision of clinicians can reduce the mortality rate. However, it is not possible to monitor patients every day in all cases accurately and consultation of a patient for 24 hours by a doctor is not available since it requires more sapience, time and expertise. In this project, we have developed and researched about models for heart disease prediction through the various heart attributes of patient and detect impending heart disease using Machine learning techniques like backward elimination algorithm, KNN and REFCV on the dataset available publicly in Kaggle Website, further evaluating the results using confusion matrix and cross validation. The early prognosis of cardiovascular diseases can aid in making decisions on lifestyle changes in high-risk patients and in turn reduce the complications, which can be a great milestone in the field of medicine.
