We train an enhanced deep convolutional neural network in order to identify eight cardiac abnormalities from the standard 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs) using the dataset of 14000 ECGs. Instead of straightforwardly applying an end-to-end deep learning approach, we find that deep convolutional neural networks enhanced with sophisticated hand crafted features show advantages in reducing generalization errors. Additionally, data preprocessing and augmentation are essential since the distribution of eight cardiac abnormalities are highly biased in the given dataset. Our approach achieves promising generalization performance in the First China ECG Intelligent Competition; an empirical evaluation is also provided to validate the efficacy of our design on the competition ECG dataset.
