BACKGROUND The fetal heart rate (FHR) is commonly monitored during labor to detect early fetal acidosis. FHR variability is traditionally investigated using Fourier transform, often with adult predefined frequency band powers and the corresponding LF/HF ratio. However, fetal conditions differ from adults and modify spectrum repartition along frequencies. AIMS This study questions the arbitrariness definition and relevance of the frequency band splitting procedure, and thus of the calculation… CONTINUE READING
