The sensitivity and specificity of shockable heart rhythm detection algorithms should be nearly 100% in automatic external defibrillators. To attain these values, a method combining several algorithms and based on the weighting coefficients and coefficients of efficiency is reported in this work. The algorithm was tested on annotated databases of the ECG signals (AHA, MIT, and CU).
