Course Objectives:

  • Use the newly revised 2008 NICHD nomenclature in identifying fetal heart rate patterns.
  • Outline the FHR patterns indicating probable acidemia (i.e. "abnormal.")
  • Differentiate normal, indeterminant, and abnormal FHR patterns
  • Define "tachysystole."
  • Discuss evidence-based interventions and management of FHR tracing using actions based on physiology.
  • Review acid-base balance in the fetus and the newborn and apply them to various case studies.
  • Using a patient safety format, apply specific fetal emergency situations including both risk for occurrence and interventions to improve fetal oxygenation.
  • Review legal aspects of electronic fetal monitoring.
