Relation of fetal heart rate signals with unassignable baseline to poor neonatal state at birth

Abstract:

Electronic fetal heart rates (FHR) are used to monitor fetal health during labour. The paper records are visually assessed by clinicians, but automated alternatives are being developed. Interpretation, visual or computerised, depends on assigning a baseline to identify key features such as accelerations and decelerations. However, when the FHR is unstable the baseline may be unassignable, making conventional analysis unreliable. Such instability may reflect on fetal health. If true, these seg...
