Biomedical signal recordings are affected by different kinds of noise that make their interpretation difficult. In this paper, we present a comparative study of some wavelet functions in the denoising of phonocardiogram (PCG) signals. In particular, we consider the Daubechies of order 4, 6, 8, 10 and 15, Coiflets of order 3, 4, 5 and finally Symlets 10 (sym 10). The performance of these wavelets is based on the measurement of the signal-to-noise Ratio (SNR) of the denoised signal as well as the Mean Square Error (MSE) between the original noisy signal and its denoised counterpart. The results indicate that Daubechies of order 10 (db10) outperform other wavelet functions and, consequently, are potential candidates in the characterization of abnormal PCG signal.
