Description

Book Description

This highly practical manual promotes an evidence-based paradigm of fetal heart rate monitoring during labour.

About the Author

Edwin Chandraharan is Lead Consultant on the Labour Ward at St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Honorary Senior Lecturer at St George’s Hospital Medical School, University of London.

 

Chapters are presented in a systematic and accessible format, covering topics such as non-hypoxic causes of fetal brain injury, pre-existing hypoxia, types of intrapartum hypoxia, erroneous monitoring of maternal heart rate, fetal scalp blood sampling and fetal ECG (STAN), intermittent auscultation and medico-legal issues. Sections on ‘pearls’ and ‘pitfalls’ highlight good practice and common errors to promote best practice. End-of-chapter exercises allow the reader to engage with the theory and test their knowledge of key areas. This is a highly practical manual aimed at obstetricians and midwives, particularly those undergoing CTG training. The book will also be very useful to midwifery and medical students and to all those involved in multiprofessional intrapartum care.
