Abstract

ST-waveform analysis of the foetal electrocardiogram (STAN) has been shown to reduce the frequency of metabolic acidosis in newborns and to reduce the rate of caesarean sections. However, STAN technology requires an extensive educational effort during the initial implementation with certification of all midwives and doctors involved. This study shows that the positive results of using STAN could be reproduced over a five-year-period after completion of the initial teaching effort and certification of personnel and when STAN was part of everyday life at the labour ward at Gentofte Hospital.
