Monitors, Physiologic, Uterine Activity, Telemetric

Definition : Monitors designed for continuous measurement and display of the frequency and intensity of uterus contractions (i.e., uterine activity) from a distant location through a point-to-point radio or other appropriate communication link (i.e., telemetric). These monitors typically consist of a main unit clipped to the patient's gown (or carried in a pouch) which includes electronic circuits that can process signals from external sensors, a transducer, a display, and audible and/or visual alarms that are triggered when the uterine contractions are below (or exceed) preset limits. The monitor also includes a receiver that is integral or associated to the central station where the information is displayed. Telemetric uterine activity monitors are used at home, in physician's offices and sometimes in hospitals. Fetal monitors that can evaluate the fetus status and the uterine activity of the mother are also available.
