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, …

Comment on the Stockholm County Council’s decision on the STAN-method

The County Council’s Committee on Knowledge Management (KUST) made the decision in early September that the STAN-method, which is the method developed by Neoventa, will not be used during childbirth in the Stockholm County. The recommendation is to use the method only in a controlled clinical trial to make further scientific evaluation possible.
KUST based its decision on a recently published report from the Method Council for the Stockholm County Council – Region Gotland, “Fetal monitoring with computerized ST analysis …

Kommentar med anledning av Stockholms Läns Landstings beslut om STAN-metoden

Kommittén för Kunskapsstyrning (KUST) inom Stockholms Läns Landsting beslutade i början av september att STAN-metoden, det vill säga den metod som Neoventa har utvecklat, inte ska användas vid förlossningar inom Stockholms Läns Landsting. Om metoden ska användas får det endast ske inom ramen för en kontrollerad klinisk studie.
KUST bygger sitt ställningstagande på en rapport som Metodrådet vid Stockholms Läns Landsting – Region Gotland nyligen publicerade; “Fetal monitoring with computerized ST-analysis during labor – a systematic review” (Rapport 2011:3).
Metodrådet …
