Deep learning models have become a popular mode to classify electrocardiogram (ECG) data. Investigators have used a variety of deep learning techniques for this application. Herein, a detailed examination of deep learning methods for ECG arrhythmia detection is provided. Approaches used by investigators are examined, and their contributions to the field are detailed. For this purpose, journal papers have been surveyed according to the methods used. In addition, various deep learning models and experimental studies are described and discussed. A five-class ECG dataset containing 100,022 beats was then utilized for further analysis of deep learning techniques. The constructed models were examined with this dataset, and results are presented. This study therefore provides information concerning deep learning approaches used for arrhythmia classification, and suggestions for further research in this area.
