Fetal cardiac monitoring using noninvasive abdominal leads can provide important information on fetal well-being. However, extraction of fetal electrocardiogram (fECG) from abdominal signals is often problematic because of the higher amplitude maternal ECG (mECG). The aim of this study was to introduce a principal component model for removing the maternal ECG from abdominal signals. The proposed method removes mECG waveforms with high accuracy even though abdominal movements cause morphological… CONTINUE READING
