AWHONN Intermediate Fetal Heart Monitoring is the first instructor-led course in the FHM learning pathway. This is a 2-day class consisting of didactic content plus hands-on skills stations. Most noteworthy, Intermediate Fetal Heart Monitoring facilitates difficult concepts by presenting content in a standardized format. Additionally, this course serves as an educational assessment to validate the knowledge and skills of experienced perinatal clinicians. Finally, successful completion of skills stations and the integration test results in a statement of Intermediate Fetal Monitoring Course Knowledge Validation by AWHONN. To summarize, the skills stations covered offer demonstration as well as testing of the following:

-First, students will review maternal and fetal physiology.
-Next, participants will learn how to effectively evaluate auscultated fetal heart sounds.
-Subsequently, learners will have the opportunity to practice how to perform Leopold’s maneuvers.
-In addition, hands-on practice will also include the placement of intrauterine pressure catheters and fetal spiral electrodes.
-Further, participants will have the opportunity to interpret fetal and uterine monitor tracings.
-The course includes a discussion on the identification of indicated clinical interventions.
-Last but not least, strategies for enhancing communication, not to mention, methods for documentation.

This course is only for clinicians who have completed a Basic FHM class or those who utilize FHM in  intrapartum. Caution, this course is not for unlicensed students or new grads. Likewise, clinicians with limited intrapartum care may require additional clinical experience to gain the required knowledge base. In contrast, experienced obstetrical providers may consider AWHONN Advanced Fetal Heart Monitoring. Lastly, Nurses, including Physicians who attend this course may receive continuing education credits for full participation by AWHONN.
