This paper presents the ECG compression technique using wavelet transform corresponds to the different wavelets. There are so many techniques are popular for ECG compression. The wavelet based techniques are most popular and conveniently implementable. Here in this paper, we have performed the ECG compression using the lossless coding technique. Further we have analyzed the results for the different wavelet belong to the different families, on the basis of different parameters i.e. PRD, Compression Ratio and finally the conclusion is made from the obtained results, which are given in this paper.
