This paper introduces an automated methodology for the extraction of fetal heart rate from cutaneous potential abdominal electrocardiogram (abdECG) recordings. A three-stage methodology is proposed. Having the initial recording, which consists of a small number of abdECG leads in the first stage, the maternal R-peaks and fiducial points (QRS onset and offset) are detected using time-frequency (t-f) analysis and medical knowledge. Then, the maternal QRS complexes are eliminated. In the second… CONTINUE READING
