Newly released consensus publications have reshaped the landscape in fetal heart rate monitoring, making it simpler and more practical than it has ever been.
Learning modules with animation and interactive exercises engage clinicians to learn and apply knowledge into practice situations. The expected outcome is to enhance interdisciplinary communication and collaboration helping to optimize outcomes for mother and baby.
Focuses on the standardized definitions of Intrapartum Fetal Heart Rate patterns endorsed by NICHD and endorsed by ACOG, AWHONN, and ACNM.
Distills electronic fetal monitoring interpretation into three central principles. Principle 1: variable, late or prolonged deceleration signal interruption of the oxygen pathway. Principle 2: moderate variability and/or accelerations reliably predict the absence of fetal metabolic acidemia at the time they are observed. Principle 3: excluding metabolic acidemia, excludes ongoing intrapartum hypoxic neurologic injury.
Describes a simplified, A,B,C,D approach to Intrapartum Fetal Heart Rate management providing a framework for clinicians to formulate a plan of management that is factually accurate and articulate, to essential elements that define the standard of care.
