AbstractPatterns of alterations in fetal heart rate provide the earliest clue of jeopardy of the fetus from umbilical cord compression, abnormal uterine contractions, placental dysfunction or impaired fetal reserve. Correlated with uterine contractions, such patterns provide an index of the condition of the fetus and an objective basis for clinical management. The recognition of the value of continuous monitoring of these parameters has resulted in widespread use of electronic apparatus. Telemetry techniques have proved value as an alternative method of surveillance. A system has been devised for telemetry of fetal cardiac activity detected with ultrasound.
