Monitors, Physiologic, Fetal, Intrapartum, Bedside

Definition : Physiologic monitors designed for continuous measurement and display of information about the fetus status, including the fetal heart rate (FHR), other fetal cardiac parameters, and frequently fetal movement and mother's uterine contractions. These units are hooked up to the fetus and/or mother at the bedside during childbirth. These monitors typically consist of a central unit with electronic circuits that can process signals from the sensors (e.g., electrodes) placed on the mother's abdomen and/or directly on the fetal scalp (or other exposed fetal skin surface) and measure the change in pressure within the uterus. Most intrapartum fetal monitors have additional capabilities, including fetal and maternal ECG recording. Intrapartum bedside fetal monitors are used during labor and delivery to assess the progress of labor and the well-being of the mother and fetus.
