Mark “Yes” if the following statements are true for you:
  • Efficient fetal-maternal ECG signal separation from two channel maternal abdominal ECG via diffusion-based channel selection Ruilin Li, Martin G. Frasch, Hau-tieng Wu (Submitted on 7 Feb 2017) There is a need for affordable, widely deployable maternal-fetal ECG monitors to improve maternal and fetal health during pregnancy and delivery. Based on the diffusion-based channel selection, here we present the mathematical formalism and clinical validation of an algorithm capable of accurate separation of maternal and fetal ECG from a two channel signal acquired over maternal abdomen.
