This decomposition is unique to our approach, compared to standard methods that extract FHR features.
The First-Hour Rating (FHR) is a measure of the hourly hot water capacity of a residential water heater.
The observation that the NHU sample required 50-fold concentration to obtain clearly detectable FH, FHL-1, and FHR-1 bands indicated that the amounts of FH and FHRs are much higher in the patient urine samples than in NHU, as expected on the basis of previous reports (11 ).
During this time, acceleration of the FHR is usually not seen, potentially prompting interpretation of the NST as "nonreactive." Other factors that may tend to produce a nonreactive NST include sedatives, analgesics, beta-agonists, maternal hypoglycemia, and maternal smoking.[23] The most obvious way to avoid being confused by a fetal sleep pattern is to continue monitoring a patient with a nonreactive NST until the criteria for reactivity are met.
