Suitability of POC lactate methods for fetal and perinatal lactate testing: considerations for accuracy, specificity and decision making criteria.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Point of care (POC) testing for fetal scalp blood lactate is a more user friendly and more successful approach compared to scalp pH for intrapartum fetal monitoring. The aim of this study was to assess the analytical specificity and clinical reliability of three POC lactate methods. METHODS The analytical performance of three POC lactate… (More)
