High usage of CTG+ST Analysis results in a reduced rate of metabolic acidosis

This prospective clinical study1 investigated the improvements in quality-of-care after the introduction of ST Analysis in a Swedish district hospital. Data was collected during seven years and almost 13,000 deliveries were included in a detailed analysis. The number of deliveries increased by 47% during the time period, and during the same period the usage of CTG + ST Analysis increased from 26 to 69%. The rate of cord gas sampling also increased and was 96.3% in 2007.
