Poster at SMFM: Significantly improved outcomes over 10 years of STAN usage in Turku

Dr. Timonen from Turku University Hospital, Finland presented a poster with their experience of ST Analysis at the recent Society for Maternal- Fetal Medicine (SMFM) congress in Dallas USA. The rate of metabolic acidosis was reduced by 79% when the first four years of ST Analysis usage were compared to the six following years in patients monitored with CTG+ST. During the same period the number of fetal scalp blood measurements was substantially reduced as well as the rate of total cesarean …

No risk associated with high baseline T/QRS ratio

In the European Stan Expert meeting in 2009, the interpretation of a high baseline T/QRS ratio at the start of a registration was discussed since some cases with high baseline T/QRS followed by metabolic acidosis had been encountered. The baseline T/QRS is the absolute value of the T/QRS ratio at the start of a Stan recording, and is currently only used for comparison with later changes indicating a rise in the T-wave of the fetal ECG.

Meta-Analysis concludes benefits of ST Analysis

The objective of this meta-analysis, which includes five randomised trials (RCT) and 15,352 patients, was to compare the effects of adding ST Analysis to conventional intrapartum CTG. The included RCT’s evaluated singleton term pregnancies in cephalic presentation and the meta-analysis was performed on results for metabolic acidosis, fetal blood sampling, mode of delivery, Apgar score and neonatal care. For three of the studies, published corrected data were used and the meta-analysis could be performed on all data according to the intention-to-treat principle.

How to configure STAN S31 for network recording storage

First decide what protocol and server type to use. FTP and HTTP/WebDAV are the easiest to implement, while HTTP/POST is intended for more advanced server applications, e.g. when the recording file is to be added to a digital patient record or similar.Install the server application and decide what kind of authorisation is to be used. Although anonymous access is supported, Neoventa recommends that, when not using anonymous access, a unique account is created on the server for the STAN devices, …

Effectiveness of pulse oximetry vs ST Analysis

The aim of this prospective randomized study was to compare the effectiveness of pulse oximetry and ST Analysis of the fetal ECG, and to determine which method was better at identifying the labour which could continue to deliver a healthy newborn.

World´s largest trial in obstetrics

The US National Institute of Health (NIH) is conducting the largest trial ever within obstetrics. The purpose of this research study is to see if Stan and ST Analysis will have an impact on newborn health in the United States, as it has been shown to have in Europe. The study is currently recruiting, and the goal is 11,000 patients to be included until 2012. For more information Click here
