Overview

This handy resource provides portable and practical information for evaluating intrapartum and antepartum fetal status. Designed specifically for use in the clinical environment, it provides a single source of information for the care and management of the patient in the labor and delivery suite, the fetal intensive care unit, the LDR/P and the antepartum inpatient unit or ambulatory care setting where electronic monitoring is used for fetal surveillance. Thoroughly revised, it provides up-to-date content on all aspects of electronic fetal monitoring, fromoperating equipment to interpreting data. It contains the new NICHD (National Institute for Child & Human Development) standard definitions for fetal heart rate patterns and new guidelines for culturally sensitive care of the patient in labor, information on a new fetal oxygen saturation monitor, and information for other countries who use a different fetal monitor strip scaling system.
