Extracting fetal heart signal from noisy maternal ECG by multivariate singular spectrum analysis

Fetal heart rate and its beat-to-beat variability are two important indications about the health and condition of the fetus. The observed maternal electrocardiogram (ECG) signal consists of mother heart signal and fetal heart signal and is often very noisy. In this paper, we propose a multivariate singular spectrum analysis (MSSA) for extracting and… CONTINUE READING
