Paper Abstract

Fetal Phonocardiography (fPCG) is still secondary tool but provides very important information about fetal well-being that cannot be given by another fetal monitoring method. Independent Component Analysis (ICA) and Principal Component Analysis (PCA) were chosen for testing on synthetic data that are able to extract fPCG from abdominal signals. Results show that ICA and PCA could be used in clinical practice for fetal Heart Rate (fHR) monitoring, because after extraction of components it is easy to determine fHR. Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) proved that after the extraction there was a significant improvement in estimated signal to compare with input abdominal signals. We found that ICA method works better than PCA method on this data, even though it changes the amplitude of the output components.
