Basic Fetal Monitoring

Baby Saving starts before birth by preparing the mother for a successful outcome by determining the risk factors that contribute to poor outcomes.

 This course includes:

  • Palpation to assess uterine contraction.
  • Auscultation to assess fetal heart rate.
  • TOCO to evaluate uterine contractions.
  • Ultrasound to determine fetal heart rate.
  • Intrauterine Pressure Catheters (fluid filled and solid filled).
  • Fetal Spiral Electrode to determine variability of the fetal heart rate.
  • Obstetric problems that may put the woman at high risk.
  • Genetic problems that may require consultataion to choose the course of action that seems appropriate. Intrapartum surveillance requires fetal heart monitoring to closely assess the fetus in the journey down the birth canal.

In addition to the knowledge and skills, participants are also expected to have basic knowledge and related skills in these areas:

  • Maternal physiologic changes of pregnancy related to intrapartum complications
  • Identification of complex fetal heart rate monitoring tracing characteristics such as arrhythmias, and sinusoidal patterns Course Objectives: At the conclusion of this course, the learner will be able to
  • Describe the principles of oxygen transport
  • Identify the principals of fetal heart monitoring
  • Describe the concepts of antenatal testing.
  • Recite the physiological principals to the goals and interventions of antenatal testing.
  • Evaluate intervention for patients undergoing antennal texting.
  • Analyze fetal cardiac arrhythmia patterns and describe outcomes associated with these patterns.
  • Analyze complex fetal heart monitoring patterns utilizing current NICHD ACOG FHM terminology and categories.
  • Apply perinatal risk management principles, communication techniques and documentation strategies related to complex and challenging patient care scenarios.

Goal: To remember why we do what we do. Reference: AWHONN Principles and Practice 4th Ed. & Nurses Educational Opportunities pre-study material

NRP, BLS and Advanced Fetal Monitoring

I had my NRP, BLS and Advanced Fetal Monitoring at their Costa Mesa office. I had an awesome experience. Signing up for classes was a breeze. Everyone in the office were helpful and accommodating. Class size and environment is conducive for learning. Jane made fetal ECG easy! 😀

I will definitely come back for my other recerts.

Great class! The instructors were very knowledgeable and kept the day very upbeat. I have already recommended my co-workers and some of them have enrolled for a class on June 23.
