Why Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring Is Important

Labor and delivery technology has grown leaps and bounds during the last two generations. Now, many of the issues that once endangered the life of both mother and child are less threatening. Fetal heart rate monitoring has become a basic preventative measure used by medical professionals during routine appointments, labor, and delivery. It’s an important part of determining the health of your baby. Fetal heart rate monitoring helps the nurse and doctor see if the baby is in distress or if he or she isn’t getting enough oxygen.

Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring Errors

Fetal heart rate monitoring errors can cause severe problems for your baby. If a baby is in distress and the monitor wasn’t used or errors occurred, medical staff may not see the signs of distress and can’t take appropriate action such as providing the right intravenous medication or performing an emergency C-section to help the baby.
