    Abstract

    Continuous monitoring of the fetal heart rate using cardiotocography was introduced into clinical practice in the late 1960s and since then it has been considered as an indispensable tool for fetal surveillance. Fetal heart rate patterns are recognized manually by obstetricians during the process of cardiotocographs analyses. Difference in opinion and delay in detecting a significant pattern and subsequent clinical intervention, especially during high-risk pregnancies, increases the maternal and fetal complications. In this work, we present a method for estimating baseline, one of the important features present in the fetal heart rate (FHR) signal, taking into account the number of occurrences of a particular FHR and its continuity of occurrence. The results are compared with the opinion of two experts' baseline estimation. Similar results on baseline estimation between the algorithm and the experts were obtained in all except one of the 15 data samples.
