From the Publisher"Since continuous electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) was introduced in the 1970s and caesarean section rates skyrocketed without any improvement in perinatal mortality or morbidity, the search has been on to improve cardiotocography (CTG) interpretation. This quest rests on the premise that improving interpretation will lower the false positive rate of EFM.
Gibb and Arulkumaran have been at the forefront of the challenge with this, the second edition of their book... Importantly, it bases CTG interpretation in real clinical scenarios that highlight the importance of judging each case on the full clinical picture. It covers normal and abnormal traces comprehensively with additional chapters on fetal blood sampling and alternative methods of fetal surveillance.
