The heart rate is a fundamental frequency, but the waveforms are complex and made up
of many frequency components. Secondary frequencies will overlap.

That won't work; they will overlap in frequency. Linear predictive and adaptive filter techniques would be more
effective. See previous post by Humera Rafique Butt on this subject (31 Dec 2006), about "implementation of these
filters and a good description of narrow band overlap problem is found in Simon Hyken (Adaptive Filter Theory)."

I believe the 2 ECG signals of mother & baby occupy different band (have different frequency). You could perform FFT on them filter them in frequency domain using band pass filter and then perform IFFT to get back your time signals.

I hope that helps.

This problem is known as spectral overlap problem. You need to apply some adaptive filters for separating these signals. say LMS adaptive system. Matlab documentation guides about the implementation of these filters and a good description of narrow band overlap problem is found in Simon Hyken (Adaptive Filter Theory).

Hi;
How can we filter 2 signals from eachother.
for example,I have a signal which is the ECG of mother & also baby
toghether,how can I seperate these two from eachother & also ,how can
I separate noise of city voltage?

thanks,
maryam

Hi;
How can we filter 2 signals from eachother.
for example,I have a signal which is the ECG of mother & also baby
toghether,how can I seperate these two from eachother & also ,how can
I separate noise of city voltage?

thanks,
maryam
