A neuro fuzzy hybrid model (NFHM) is proposed as a new artificial intelligence method to classify blood pressure (BP). The NFHM uses techniques such as neural networks, fuzzy logic and evolutionary computation, and in the last case genetic algorithms (GAs) are used. The main goal is to model the behavior of blood pressure based on monitoring data of 24 h per patient and based on this to obtain the trend, which is classified using a fuzzy system based on rules provided by an expert, and these rules are optimized by a genetic algorithm to obtain the best possible number of rules for the classifier with the lowest classification error. Simulation results are presented to show the advantage of the proposed model. View Full-Text
