Abstract

A valuable alternative to traditional diagnostic tool to record fetal heart rate, to monitor the general fetal wellbeing, is fetal phonocardiography, a passive and low cost acoustic recording of fetal heart sounds. In this paper, it is presented a simulating software of fetal phonocardiographic signals relative to different fetal physiological states and recording conditions (for example different kinds and levels of noise). This software can be useful to test and assess fetal heart rate extraction algorithms from fetal phonocardiographic recordings and as a teaching tool for demonstration to medical students and others.
