Abstract.   More than 50% people suffer from some heart disease in lndia in which the heart block. is most  common heart disease. Some patients get proper clinical assistance in due course of time but some may not. due to lack of medical  expertise. This merely happens in remote areas where there is always such problems can occur.  This could  be avoided if proper clinical advice and treatment is made available to patients. A heart block is a disease in the electrical system of the heart.  Hean block can cause fainting and palpitation.   The heart functioning can be monitored by analyzing the electrical activitie through electrocardiogram (ECG).  The paper focuses on the method of determination of second degree Heart Block conditir-n  of a human heart from the speech analysis. In an ECG the PR interval represents the time taken for the depolarization   to read from the SA node to the ventricular muscle. If multiple  P waves are obtained for a QRS complex,  the second degree Heart Block is found. As Formant  Frequency is the speech  feature which represents the physiological  and psychological coi.dition of a human body. Formant analysis describes  various  heart parameters which are obtained through an ECG and so   the detection of various  heart diseases can be possible from speech analysis.

Keywords:  Formant frequency, ECG, RR-duration, heart block, PR-interval, Hindi utterance
