This important book summarises a century of research and practical applications in fetal electrocardiography. Although fetal ECG is most commonly used for the calculation of fetal heart rates, other parameters have been employed in the prediction of fetal acidons. The book presents new approaches to the interpretation and analysis of the fetal ECG signal and discusses possible new approaches to the clinical exploitation of the electrical activity of the fetal heart. The authors have made numerous contributions to the study of fetal electrocardiography over the last three decades.
