Stethoscope-recorded chest sounds provide the opportunity for remote cardio-respiratory health monitoring of neonates. However, reliable monitoring requires high-quality heart and lung sounds. This paper presents novel Non-negative Matrix Factorisation (NMF) and Non-negative Matrix CoFactorisation (NMCF) methods for neonatal chest sound separation. To assess these methods and compare with existing singlesource separation methods, an artificial mixture dataset was generated comprising of heart…

TLDR
A new Non-negative Matrix Co-Factorisation based approach is proposed to separate noisy chest sound recordings into heart, lung and noise components to address the problem of timely and accurate assessment of newborns cardio-respiratory health.

Neonatal Heart and Lung Sound Quality Assessment for Robust Heart and Breathing Rate Estimation for Telehealth Applications

TLDR
A new method to objectively and automatically assess the signal quality to improve the accuracy and reliability of heart rate (HR) and breathing rate (BR) estimation from noisy neonatal chest sounds is proposed.

Real-Time Multi-Level Neonatal Heart and Lung Sound Quality Assessment for Telehealth Applications

TLDR
In this study, a new method is proposed to assess heart and lung signal quality objectively and automatically on a 5-level scale in real-time, and to assess the effect of signal quality on vital sign estimation, demonstrating that increasing the signal quality leads to a reduction in vital sign error.

TLDR
Results show that the WT based filtering reduces the lung sound average power greatly over the whole frequency range, which results in pronounced change in the spectrum of the original signal that are of interest.

Localizing Heart Sounds in Respiratory Signals Using Singular Spectrum Analysis

TLDR
Singular spectrum analysis (SSA), a powerful time series analysis technique, is used in this paper and the proposed method outperforms the wavelet-based method in terms of false detection and also correlation with the underlying heart sounds.
