Abstract

A valuable alternative to US cardiotocography, for fetal surveillance, can be offered by phonocardiography, a passive and low cost acoustic recording of fetal heart sounds. A crucial point is the exact recognizing of the fetal heart sounds, associated to each fetal heart beat, and then the estimation of FHR signal. In this work, software for FHR assessment from phonocardiographic signals was developed. To check the reliability of the software, obtained results were compared with those of simultaneously recorded cardiotocographic signals. Results seemed to be satisfying, as provided FHR series were almost all confined within FHR-CTG +/- 3 bpm, where FHR-CTG were FHR series provided by commercial US cardiotocographic devices, currently employed in clinical routine.
