Basic Fetal Heart Monitoring

About Basic Fetal Heart Monitoring

Basic Fetal Heart Monitoring is a comprehensive introductory course; hence, candidates do not require experience to attend this class. Experienced RN’s, on the other hand, are recommended to attend an Intermediate or Advanced FHM course. In summary, 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. Further, different methods of uterine and fetal monitoring will be discussed. In particular, students will learn how to determine if a patient requires internal versus external fetal monitoring.

In addition, this course will define the etiologies related to characteristics of the baseline fetal heart rate, variability, plus fetal heart deceleration’s. Similarly, students will learn how to identify and respond to category II and III fetal heart strips. Nursing interventions for non-reassuring patterns will be also deliberated. Last but not least, students will have the opportunity to practice assessments of FHR strips.
