Objective. Evaluating changes in the power spectral density (PSD) peak frequency of the electrohysterogram (EHG) caused by nifedipine in women with preterm contractions. Methods. Calculation of the PSD peak frequency in EHG contraction bursts at different times of nifedipine treatment in women in gestational age 24 to 32 weeks with contractions. Results. A(More)
During delivery, quantitative information on the uterine activity can be provided by internal uterine pressure (IUP) recordings using an invasive intrauterine pressure catheter (IUPC). The electrohysterogram, which measures the electrical signal that drives the mechanical contraction of the uterine muscle and the consequent IUP increase, is recorded by(More)
Electrohysterography (EHG) is a promising technique for monitoring the uterine activity, based on electrical recordings on the abdominal surface. However, a quantitative estimation of the internal uterine pressure (IUP) by means of EHG is not available for clinical practice. In this paper we present a preliminary study on the estimation of the mechanical(More)
Monitoring the uterine contractions provides important prognostic information during pregnancy and delivery. In particular, the propagation of uterine activity is closely related to the contraction efficiency. In the present study, a propagation analysis of uterine contraction is carried out by simultaneously recording the electrohysterogram (EHG) and the(More)
