This fourth edition provides the obstetrical team a framework within which to interpret and understand fetal heart rate tracings and their implications. It also covers key issues such as the physiological basis for monitoring, a discussion of fetal hypoxemia and neonatal encephalopathy, instrumentation and pattern recognition. In addition to an in-depth review of the standardized NICHD nomenclature and three-tiered FHR Category approach, there are chapters on intrapartum and antepartum management as well as fetal central nervous system effects on monitor patterns. Since fetal monitoring is primarily a screening tool there are also discussions on the use of backup methods for evaluation of abnormal patterns. This eidtion also provides a nursing and midwifery perspective as well an enhanced legal and risk management review.  BONUS:  Full access to a companion website with full text and an image bank for fast & simplified clinical review.
