Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring
The foetal heart rate provides information which could translate into improved care and decreased mortality. The second edition of Fetal heart Rate Monitoring helps the reader make the best possible use of this technique. New technologies such as dynamic real time ultrasound and improved understanding of the causes of neurological damage to the foetus have changed the role of electronic foetal heart rate monitoring in obstetrics.
