This Guideline provides guidance for antenatal and intrapartum fetal heart rate (FHR) monitoring as a fetal welfare assessment tool. The document
provides background on electronic fetal heart rate monitoring (EFM), definitions of FHR features, criteria for intermittent auscultation, criteria for continuous EFM, algorithms for the interpretation of antenatal and intrapartum FHR patterns, and a guide for clinical management including consultation and escalation.

The current edition of this eBook has been updated (Nov 2021) to support the latest RANZCOG Intrapartum Fetal Surveillance (IFS) Guideline. This is an essential and easy-to-read resource for all clinicians involved in the care of women in pregnancy and labour. Over 60 examples of real CTGs (1cm/min) are provided, supported by detailed descriptions and guided interpretation.
An invaluable guide for clinicians (nurses, nurse-midwives, physicians) responsible for ordering, initiating, performing, and interpreting electronic fetal monitoring (EFM). Written by OB/GYN nurses and advanced practitioners, this combination textbook/workbook offers clinicians involved in perinatal care a uniquely detailed, in-depth, and historical perspective on EFM. Topics include maternal-fetal physiology, EFM instrumentation, antepartum and intrapartum fetal assessment and pattern interpretation, and a variety of additional issues and challenges relevant to the current state of EFM practice.
Accessible writing style, basic CTG interpretation, use of correct terminology, common pitfalls associated with equipment usage, underlying pathophysiology, clinical trial data and relevant clinical scenarios - new features include an expanded author team to provide an international perspective, the latest guidelines from NICE and FIGO, new and expanded information on clinical assessment and medical litigation, and a new chapter on competency testing in CTG interpretation prior to practice.
Written by leading fetal radiologists and maternal-fetal medicine specialists, with additional input from cardiologists, geneticists, and Doppler specialists, Fundamental and Advanced Fetal Imaging provides comprehensive, practical guidance on prenatal ultrasound and fetal MRI. Clearly presents essential information on normal anatomy and techniques, screening of normal and abnormal conditions, and fetal malformations, helping you effectively evaluate obstetric patients and reach an accurate diagnosis for a wide variety of fetal anomalies.
This book promotes an evidence-based paradigm of fetal heart rate monitoring during labour, with a move away from the traditional 'pattern-based' interpretation to physiology-based interpretation. Chapters cover topics such as non-hypoxic causes of fetal brain injury, pre-existing hypoxia, types of intrapartum hypoxia, erroneous monitoring of maternal heart rate, fetal scalp blood sampling and fetal ECG (STAN), intermittent auscultation and medico-legal issues. Sections on 'pearls' and 'pitfalls' highlight good practice and common errors to promote best practice.
Authored by a nurse-midwife, a perinatologist, and a nurse, this book is an evidence-based resource on fetal heart rate monitoring for all clinicians -It provides a single source for interpretation and management of electronic fetal monitoring - Descriptions of the relationship between fetal heart rate and fetal acidemia alert you to important considerations in the care of the laboring patient.
Completely updated and revised with leading-edge procedures and techniques this book features 8 units covering obstetric evaluation and Neonatal Resuscitation Program information and skills, as well as units on thermal care and neonatal hypoglycemia.
