Patricio Fuentealba, Alfredo Illanes, Frank Ortmeier: Spectral-based Analysis of Progressive Dynamical Changes in the Fetal Heart Rate Signal During Labor by Using Empirical Mode Decomposition. In: 2018 Computing in Cardiology (CinC), S. 1–4, IEEE 2018.

Abstract

In this work, we propose to study the progressive fetal response along the fetal heart rate (FHR) signal by using empirical mode decomposition and time-varying spectral-based analysis. The main idea is to investigate if a particular FHR signal episode in the time-domain reflects dynamical changes in the frequency-domain that can help to assess the fetal condition. Results show that the spectral components associated with the neural sympathetic fetal reactivity exhibit significant spectral energy differences between normal and acidotic fetuses.
