The paper presents a novel screening method to indicate congenital heart diseases (CHD) which otherwise would remain undetected because of their low level. Therefore, not belonging to the high-risk population, they are omitted from the regular fetal monitoring with ultrasound echocardiography. Based on the fact that CHDs are morphological defects of the heart causing turbulent blood flow, this turbulence appears as a murmur, which can be detected by phonocardiography (PCG). The proposed method applies measurements on the maternal abdomen and from the recorded sound signal a sophisticated processing determines the fetal heart murmur. The paper describes the problems and the additional advantages of the PCG method including the possibility of measurements at home and its combination with the prescribed regular cardiotocographic (CTG) monitoring. The proposed screening process implemented on a telemedicine system provides an enhanced safety against hidden cardiac diseases.
