Basic Fetal Heart Monitoring

Basic Fetal Heart Monitoring

Basic Fetal Heart Monitoring is the ideal course for nursing students, new grads, or nurses looking to transition into the Labor and Delivery Unit; hence, no experience is required to attend.

In summary, Basic Fetal Heart Monitoring is a comprehensive introductory course in which participants will learn the skills needed to perform fetal surveillance through electronic Fetal Monitoring. To begin with, students will overview the role of the nurse during the antepartum period; as well as how to properly acquire the information needed to conduct appropriate antenatal tests. Next, different methods of uterine and fetal monitoring will be discussed. Likewise, students will learn the considerations that must be made for internal vs external monitoring. In addition, this course will define the etiologies related to characteristics of the baseline fetal heart rate, variability and fetal heart deceleration’s. Last but not least, Basic Fetal Heart Monitoring will cover the standard terminology required for proper documentation and communication.

Most notably, students will have the opportunity to practice assessments of FHR strips. Additionally, nursing interventions for non-reassuring patterns will be deliberated for each accompanying fetal heart strip. Moreover, category II and III fetal heart strips will be discussed and practiced in further detail. Nurses who complete Basic Fetal Heart Monitoring will feel ready to carefully assess and prepare mothers for a successful outcome. Furthermore, upon completion of Basic Fetal Heart Monitoring the RN will acquire the skills to assess fetal heart strips and perform appropriate interventions.

Experienced RN’s are recommended to attend a Intermediate or Advanced FHM course. To learn more about maternal morbidity and mortality in the US please visit the CDC’s website.
