Sample of abdominal non-invasive fetal electrocardiogram (FECG) recording

This database contains a series of 55 multichannel abdominal non-invasive fetal electrocardiogram (FECG) recordings, taken from a single subject between 21 to 40 weeks of pregnancy. The records have variable durations, and were taken weekly (two or more records were acquired during some weeks). These records may be very useful for testing signal separation algorithms.

The FECGs in this collection were amplified using a g.BSamp Biosignal Amplifier. The data have been stored in EDF/EDF+ format.
