The primary goal of FHR monitoring is to identify hypoxemic and acidotic fetuses in whom timely intervention will prevent death or Neurological Damage
Course Topics :
To Understand Physiology of Fetal Heart (When does the fetal heart develop ? What are factors that regulate FHR? What is the Cardiovascular response to hypoxia? )
•Pathophysiology of CTG to help understand physiology behind observed 'CTG Patterns'
•Role of Intermittent Auscultation to ensure effective monitoring of low risk pregnancies.
•To improve your Interpretation of CTG- both Antepartum and Intra-partum .
•Interactive Case Reviews: to help delegates use the knowledge of physiology in CTG Interpretation and to determine fetal response to hypoxic stress.
•Risk management strategies to reduce hypoxic injuries in labour ward, including the use of 'intra-uterine resuscitation'
•CTG Guidelines - 'rational application' in clinical practice

What unique about this course
On completion of the course, you should be able to:
•Demonstrate basic interpretation of the CTG
•Understand the types of intrapartum hypoxia and resultant features observed on CTG Trace
•Understand control of fetal heart rate and the factors that affect the features observed on the Cardiotocograph (CTG)
•To be able to perform the test correctly; &Interpreted the results satisfactorily & this interpretation must provoke appropriate response.
