OBJECTIVE To determine the diagnostic value of fetal ST-segment analysis (STAN) in predicting neonatal acidosis. METHODS The STAN S21 was used to monitor singleton fetuses in labor with abnormal FHR. Physicians later reviewed tracings to identify any ST events dictating intervention. Outcome measures were umbilical artery pH< or =7.15 and pH< or =7.05 at(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess whether knowledge of ST-segment analysis was associated with a reduction in operative deliveries for nonreassuring fetal status (NRFS) or with a need for at least 1 scalp pH during labor. STUDY DESIGN Seven hundred ninety-nine women at term with abnormal cardiotocography or meconium-stained amniotic fluid(More)
INTRODUCTION The objective of this study was to compare neonatal respiratory morbidity and rate of emergency caesarean section between elective caesarean sections at 38 gestational weeks following a course of corticosteroids and planned caesarean sections at 39 gestational weeks. MATERIAL AND METHODS This was a multicentre randomised controlled trial. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the responses of medical staff using the STAN S21 fetal heart monitor versus standard cardiotocography (CTG) to monitor abnormal fetal heart rate in labor. METHOD Questionnaires were completed by medical staff involved in a randomized controlled trial to compare STAN surveillance with traditional surveillance before the trial had(More)
