Antenatal Fetal HR Monitoring Outpatient, Obstetrics

exp date isn't null, but text field is


There is a recognised need for fetal monitoring for high risk patients. Although there is no clear evidence that antenatal cardiotocography improves perinatal outcome (Grivell et al, 2015) the main purpose of CTG recordings is to identify when there is concern about fetal well-being to enable interventions to be carried out before the fetus is harmed (Beckmann 2014).

The aim of this guideline is to provide a standardised approach to CTG interpretation within the antenatal setting in high risk patients.
