Presents essential concepts and illustrated examples with case histories. This book describes identifiable heart rate patterns, and presents pathophysiological explanations that emphasise the significance of the different fetal heart rate patterns. It is useful to both midwives and doctors to share an informed approach to fetal monitoring.
Essential concepts are presented in an accessible manner and examples are well illustrated with case histories. Identifiable heart rate patterns are described and the pathophysiological explanations emphasise the significance of the different fetal heart rate patterns. Midwives are at the 'front line' as they deliver most of the bedside care in the labour ward, and particularly when caring for women at home. However, they are part of a wider team. This book will help ensure that both midwives and doctors share a consistent and informed approach to fetal monitoring.
