The main aim of intrapartum fetal monitoring is to avoid fetal hypoxic injury whilst minimising unnecessary operative interventions and ensuring a positive birth experience to the woman and her family. Although Cardiotocograph (CTG) has been used over the last 50 years, it is riddled with inter and intra-observer variability and has a high false positive rate. One of the drawbacks of conventional, traditional CTG teaching and training as well as National Guidelines is over-reliance on ‘Pattern Recognition’.
CTG Masterclass is aimed at understanding fetal physiology and to understand the pathophysiology behind the patterns that are observed on the CTG Trace and to determine fetal response to hypoxic and mechanical stresses that occur during labour.
Delegates will learn how to differentiate between fetal compensation and decompensation to ensure timely and appropriate action. By the end of the CTG Masterclass, delegates will be able to recognize features of fetal response to stress on the CTG Trace and also to predict the next change on the CTG Trace.
