Title: Fetal outcome predictor and monitoring system

Abstract: A fetal health assessor and outcome predictor and monitoring system includes a system for automatically assessing fetal health and predicting fetal outcomes based on fetal and maternal data. The system includes a case-based reasoning processor for categorizing the fetus into one of a plurality of cases based on biographical data about the fetus and mother. The system also includes a transducer for converting physical conditions of the fetus and mother (e.g. characteristics based on heart rates and uterine contractions) to signals representative of the conditions. A computer processor converts the signals to a set of signal features. An assessor and predictor receives the processed signal features and assesses fetal health and predicts fetal outcome based on identified fuzzy relationships between fetal and maternal data and fetal outcomes.
