1. The proposed method of expansion by parts provides high accuracy with a small number of parameters.

2. Expansion by parts allows the ECG to be processed before input to the computer, and it gives synchronous encoding, which presents a difficulty in many other methods.

3. Expansion by parts is more accurate than the usual medical system of features and so has scope for extension of diagnoses.

4. This method is desirable for use in a centralized system of automatic ECG diagnosis.
