In a first experiment a miniaturised radio hydrophone was implanted inside the amniotic sac in three pregnant ewes and recordings were made from 3 weeks before the lambs were born until they had emerged; these recordings showed that the sound of the mother's voice was slightly louder when picked up by the hydrophone inside the amniotic sac than when picked(More)
The hypnotic and analgesic components of anaesthesia can be assessed using middle latency auditory evoked potentials (MLAEPs) and somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs). To monitor these potentials reliably during clinical anaesthesia, we have developed an evoked potential (EP) system based around a portable personal computer, a DSP board and an isolated(More)
BACKGROUND Recent declines in the provision of prenatal care by family physicians and the integration of midwives into the Canadian health care system have led to a shift in the pattern of prenatal care provision; however it is unknown if this also impacts use of other health services during pregnancy.

A 3-channel neonatal medical monitoring system is described which uses infrared light instead of electrical leads to transmit physiological signals from the neonate to monitoring equipment. This system is especially applicable to situations where low level physiological signals such as the EEG need to be monitored in the vicinity of other life support and(More)
A single flexible active electrode for monitoring the fetal electroencephalogram (FEEG), has been designed specifically for use in routine obstetrics. It does not require penetration of or adherence to the fetal scalp, and it is reusable. The equipment's performance has been tested in 20 normal labours. The recordings obtained were not contaminated by the(More)
