- Beat-to-beat fetal heart rate will be compared to the Doppler result. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]Beat-to-beat fetal heart rate will be compared to the Doppler result using Pearson Correlation. Timing of PR, QT, and QS, if visible, will be compared with published normative values from the neonatology literature as these values are not otherwise obtainable in an ongoing pregnancy.
- Evaluate the presence of other fECG intervals. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]The fECG Separation Algorithm used in this research incorporates the filtering of noise of very high level as compared with the signal to be retrieved , in combination with employment of SVD (Singular Value Decomposition) methods.
