Summary note:
"Fetal heart rate monitoring is widely used by almost every obstetrician as a way to document the case and to help decrease health care costs. This is a short reference on the physiologic benefits, instrumentation, application and interpretation of fetal heart rate monitoring. The second half of the book uses actual FHR strips and cases to illustrate various anomalies (fetal distress, fetal distress in prematurity, fetus with CNS dysfunction). Several new drugs have been introduced for use during labor that effect FHR"--Provided by publisher.
