Abstract

In this paper a new method to extract the fetal signal from the abdominal electrocardiogram (ECG) is presented. A three-stage method for fetal heart rate detection from abdominal ECG recordings is proposed. After preprocessing, adaptive noise cancellation (ANC) is used to extract the fetal ECG. Then in the third stage maternal QRS complex removal window is applied to eliminate or scale down the maternal residual peaks. The method is validated using 30 recorded data and compared with another three stage method using independent component analysis (ICA) for the fetal ECG extraction. The average sensitivity and average positive predictivity of the ANC based method is 85.8 % and 67.6 % respectivly compared to 74.4% and 64.1% of the ICA based method. These show that the ANC based method was more successful in detecting the FHR than ICA.
