Analysis of the Abdominal Blood Oxygenation Signal of Premature Born Babies
In this paper the analysis of the premature born babies abdominal blood oxidation values as a signal is conducted with the goal of acquisition of the basic parameters of the signal and establishing the reference parameters for further studies. The authors also study the behavior of the signal and determine the possibility of its prediction using ARIMA model. To authors’ knowledge no such analysis of the signal from preterm babies was conducted yet, both from medical and computer science points of view, so in this paper they also try to answer the question whether the signal may be reliable for further studies on the possible use of it in monitoring and diagnosis of the preterm babies.
