FECG Extraction Using LMS-Based Adaptive Noise Canceling Approach
Ali Ahmad Eyadeh
Fetal Electrocardiogram (FECG) signal provides reliable information concerning the electrophysiological state of a fetus that could assist clinicians in making appropriate decisions during pregnancy and labor. In this paper an optimal adaptive filter with a dynamic structure was designed to extract a FECG from composite maternal abdominal signal. Positive experimental results were obtained.
