Several types of heart malfunctions are usually caused by heart attack, rhythm disturbances and pathological degenerations. Unfortunately large groups of people are affected by this problem. The main goal of this paper is to compare the direct and inverse ECG signal processing methods, and to define an optimal solution in different circumstances. Due to the high number of unknown parameters, both algorithms apply stochastic processing methods. None of the processing ways can give us "best" results. The performance is determined by the known and unknown parameters. In most cases both methods can contribute to the optimal solution.
