Heart auscultation (the interpretation by a physician of heart sounds) is a fundamental activity of cardiac diagnosis. It is, however, a difficult skill to acquire. So it would be convenient to diagnosis the failure using some monitoring techniques. This paper reviews different signal processing technique for analyzing Heart Sound (HS) Vibration signals which is mainly used to diagnose these diseases. Conventional methods for fault diagnosis are mainly based on observing the amplitude differences in time or frequency domain such as Fourier Transform (FT), Short Time Fourier Transform (STFT), and Wavelet transform. This paper includes Spectral analysis method of heart sound by using autoregressive power spectral density (AR-PSD) for discriminating normal and abnormal HS, another method to diagnose heart sound such as Wavelet packet analysis and classifiers like Hidden Markov Model (HMM), Artificial Neural Network (ANN).
