A system solution with new technical details and new demands on space distribution is proposed for the use of antenatal cardiotocography and cardiotocographic monitoring of labour. Bedside equipment will be reduced and widely shifted to a centralised control room by introduction of the system. All installations are of high flexibility to leave room for future developments in medical engineering and for necessary services. -- Large-scale use of the new technique with capacity utilisation of the hardware involved will be ensured by appropriate upgrading of labour room personnel as well as by techno-organisational improvement of work and minimisation of expenses on diagnosis and monitoring. The measures proposed work according to expectation and lead to good perinatological results.
