Amongst the patients included in group-B, 22% of cardiotocographs were done in antenatal period and 78% were done during labour.
Use of Cardiotocograph monitoring in low risk pregnancies has no better role than Intermittent Auscultation in improving perinatal outcome.
Medical equipment such as cardiotocograph (CTG) unit for a DH and gas chromatography mass spectrometry system for a genetics laboratory.
Understanding of cardiotocograph findings is subjective and one of the factors involved in unnecessary CS performed for foetal distress in this tertiary setup.
Midwives' and doctors' attitudes towards the use of the cardiotocograph machine.
The cardiotocograph is equipped with two transducers: the first one is an ultrasound transducer to detect the fetal heart rate (FHR), posted next to the focus of maximum auscultation of fetal heart; the second one is a pressure transducer for uterine contractile activity located next to the uterine fundus.
To solve this problem the sound signals of the cardiotocograph can be used to identify fetal cardiac events.
NOAH TIMELINE February 10, 2011 Afternoon - Colleen Tyler is admitted to the midwife-led maternity unit at University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff 5.10pm - Midwife Gloria Lane notes a dip in baby Noah's heart rate; a second four-minute dip is noted on a cardiotocograph (CTG) and Mrs Tyler is referred to the consultant-led unit 5.55pm to 6.37pm - Mrs Tyler has a CTG trace while on the consultant-led unit.
The labour progressed smoothly, the foetus being monitored continuously by cardiotocograph. The woman was delivered of a male baby (weight 950 g) vaginally, 14 hours after induction.
The cardiotocograph trace, used to monitor foetal heart rate and contractions, was switched off too early, meaning warning signs of damage were not detected..
She was placed on a cardiotocograph (CGT) monitor, which tracks a baby's heartbeat, but no action was taken until almost three hours later.
