Cardiovascular diseases are a major threat to human life. The death rates are increasing day by day due to heart problems, such as cardiac arrest, clot or damage in blood vessels, arrhythmia, etc.. Most of the times heart related problems are emergency cases, hence there is a requirement of the on-line system in place to find the symptoms of heart problem and prevent it by detecting it in early stage. On-line system always helps the patients as well as doctor when there is an casualty. The proposed work supports health-care industry by providing a web based system for prediction of cardiac problems using Nearest Neighbors algorithm.
