This continuous CTG method is Fetal CTG monitoring book called electronic fetal monitoring (EFM). It produces a paper recording of the baby’s heart rate and mother’s labour contractions. Although a continuous CTG gives a constant written record, it prevents women from moving freely during labour.

If CTG is normal: continue CTG or if it was started because of concerns arising from intermittent auscultation, remove CTG after 20 minutes if there are no nonreassuring/abnormal features and no ongoing risk factors.

Describe decelerations as 'early', 'variable' or 'late'. Do not use the terms 'typical' and 'atypical' because they can cause confusion. No matter what career stage you’re in, AWHONN’s Fetal Heart Monitoring Program has an education course for you.

Continuous cardiotocography (CTG) as a form of electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) for fetal assessment during labour.

Cochrane Database of Systematic ReviewsIssue 2. Art. No.: CD DOI: /CDpub3. National guidelines for cardiotocograph (CTG) interpretation have undergone significant changes in the past decade, and their role in predicting fetal well-being and outcomes has come under increasing scrutiny.

1, 2 Accordingly, a survey endorsed by the Obstetric Anaesthetists' Association in 3 revealed a desire for continued education in interpretation of the CTG.

Most external monitors use a Doppler device with computerized logic to interpret and count the Doppler signals. Internal FHR monitoring is accom-plished with a fetal electrode, which is a spiral wire placed directly on the fetal scalp or other presenting part.

Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring The use of cardiotocography (CTG) is widely used antenatally and in labour to detect fetal hypoxia. The fetal heart rate (FHR) pattern can be analyzed visually by describing the baseline, variability and cyclical changes. In fetal hypoxia, the fetal heart rate increases with a reduction in the baseline variation.

A large number of randomized controlled trials have been conducted comparing continuous CTG monitoring with intermittent auscultation as screening methods for fetal hypoxia/acidosis during labor, in both low‐ and high‐risk women.

However, these trials took place in the s, s, and early s, and used different CTG interpretation. presentation). Fetal electrode placement should also preferably be avoided in very preterm fetuses (under 32 weeks gestation).

External FHR monitoring is the recommended initial method for routine intrapartum monitoring, provided that a recording of acceptable quality is obtained, i.e. that the basic CTG features can be identified.

Of the babies where fetal monitoring was identified as a critical contributory factor by one or more reviewer, continuous CTG interpretation and/or its subsequent management was a significant contributory factor to the outcome for babies.

47 of these babies had critical factors identified in both intermittent auscultation and CTG. 2. CTG monitoring does increase the chance of caesarean and other interventions.

Despite both of these things being well grounded in robust evidence, the use of CTG monitoring is widespread. We have long needed more evidence about the effect of CTG monitoring in women who are deemed to be at higher risk for a poor perinatal outcome.

Electronic fetal heart rate monitoring is commonly used to assess fetal well-being during labor. Although detection of fetal compromise is one benefit of fetal monitoring, there are also risks.

The avoidance of adverse fetal outcomes is the objective of intrapartum fetal monitoring. This objective is the same for all hospitals providing maternity services.

It is indisputable that monitoring of the fetal heart is an essential part of the care of the fetus in labour. It is generally accepted that intermittent auscultation (IA) is. The aim of intrapartum continuous electronic fetal monitoring using a cardiotocograph (CTG) is to identify a fetus exposed to intrapartum hypoxic insults so that timely and appropriate action could be instituted to improve perinatal outcome.

Features observed on a CTG trace reflect the functioning of somatic and autonomic nervous systems and the fetal response to hypoxic or mechanical insults. ACOG Practice Bulletin No. Intrapartum fetal heart rate monitoring: nomenclature, interpretation, and general management principles.

It aims to enable midwives and obstetricians to be the champions of change in their local maternity units; to bring about a paradigm shift in CTG interpretation based on fetal physiology, so as to reduce unnecessary operative interventions.
