Abstract
Abdominal electrocardiography (AECG) is an indirect method for obtaining a continuous reading of fetal heart rate and is widely used during pregnancy as a method for assessing fetal well-being. Information obtained by AECG is used for early identification of fetal risk and may help in the anticipation of future complications; however, improper interpretation of the AECG recordings, related with inter- and intra-individual variability, may lead to inadequate treatments that can cause the death of the fetus. A set of 33 indices (4 maternal, 5 temporals, 23 time-frequency and 1 non-linear), extracted from AECG recordings and maternal information, were tested with a Random Forest (RF) classification method for the identification of normal fetuses and fetuses with intrauterine growth restriction. Because RFs may perform poorly when confronted with a high number of features compared to the number of training data available, a Genetic Algorithm (GA) was used to select the minimum set of features that improves the outcome of the RF. The accuracy of the RF method using the 33 indices was of 60%. After a run of the GA, the best individual in the last generation had an accuracy value of 85% and reduced the number of used indices from 33 to 11.
