A novel compact method for fetal home monitoring optimized for long data acquisition time and low communication costs is presented. The method incorporates the preprocessing of disturbed acoustic signal received on the maternal abdomen. The basic idea of the preprocessing is that the detection of the systolic and diastolic sounds takes place on two separated frequency bands with autocorrelation on predicted time intervals. Measurements on 47 selected pregnant women have shown that the use of… CONTINUE READING
