The ability to identify fetuses at risk of hypoxia with ST Analysis in a high risk population.

The use of ST Analysis as an adjunct to CTG has during the recent years reduced the frequency of vaginal operative deliveries, the necessity of fetal blood sampling and the number of neonates transferred to NICU.

The aim of this prospective observational study was to assess the effect of the time interval from indication of hypoxia to delivery on neonatal outcome.

White paper: A call to obstetricians caring about perinatal outcome

Over the past few decades, there have been unprecedented increases in healthcare expenditures and rates of caesarean deliveries. Those charged with leadership in healthcare policy and delivery should be aware of the contribution of increasing numbers of caesarean deliveries to the overall cost of healthcare. To halt and reverse this alarming trend, the addition of fetal ECG ST Analysis (the Stan method) to traditional cardiotocography for fetal surveillance in labor can contribute in lowering healthcare costs without jeopardizing the health …

A nationwide descriptive study of obstetric claims for compensation in Norway.

“Increased training in fetal monitoring and obstetric emergency situations are recommended to decrease the obstetric compensation claims”
In this article reasons for substandard care in obstetric compensation claims are discussed.
Fetal asphyxia is the most common reason for compensation, resulting in large financial expenses to society. Human errors contribute to inadequate health care in 92 % of obstetric compensation claims, although underlying system errors may also be present.
Fetal birth asphyxia, anal sphincter tear and infection are the most common …

Understanding cardiotocographic patterns associated with intrapartum fetal hypoxia and neurological injury

“If there are more focus on pattern recognition and pathophysiology it all becomes more evident.”
Obstetricians and midwives have been trained to focus on morphological appearances of fetal decelerations rather than to understand the underlying psychological mechanisms, how the fetus compensates and defends itself. In that way original interpretations of fetal heart patterns equated decelerations to fetal distress and mandated operative interventions. Since then consequently operative interventions are undertaken to rescue fetuses that display benign signs of fetal heart rate …
