Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To investigate the clinical value of remote fetal monitoring network in the antepartum management of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM).

METHODS:

Non-stress test (NST) was preformed in 50 GDM cases by remote electronic fetal monitoring network (test group), and another 50 monitored by daily fetal movement counting and regular NST check-up in hospital served as the control group. Abnormal NST and perinatal outcome were compared between the two groups.

RESULTS:

The incidence of abnormal NST was significantly higher in the test group than in the control group (34.6% and 25.5%, P<0.05), as with Apgar scores of the neonates between the two groups (9.58+/-0.77 vs 8.70+/-1.23, P<0.01). The incidences of neonatal asphyxia (12.0%) and preterm birth (8.0%) in the test group were lower than those in the control group (24.0% and 22.0%, respectively, P<0.05). There was no significant difference in the rate of cesarean section between the two groups (P>0.05).

CONCLUSION:

Remote fetal monitoring network can be used to improve perinatal outcome of GDM, and offers a new option of self-monitoring means for pregnant women with GDM.
