INTRODUCTION ST waveform analysis was introduced to reduce metabolic acidosis at birth and avoid unnecessary operative deliveries relative to conventional cardiotocography. Our objective was to quantify the efficacy of ST waveform analysis vs. cardiotocography and assess the quality of the evidence using the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation tool. MATERIAL AND METHODS We identified randomized controlled trials through systematic literature searches and assessed… CONTINUE READING
