Comparing electronic monitoring of the baby's heartbeat on a woman's admission in labour using cardiotocography (CTG) with intermittent monitoring

Monitoring of the FHR is one of the most common methods for checking a baby's wellbeing. The two most common ways of monitoring the FHR are by listening to the heart beat using a fetal stethoscope, Pinard (special trumpet shaped device), hand‐held Doppler ultrasound device (known as intermittent auscultation) or by an electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) machine that produces a printout of the baby’s heart rate and the mother’s contractions, called a CTG.
