Basic Fetal Heart Monitoring

Basic Fetal Heart 2017
Take the first step towards fetal monitoring expertise – baby saving starts before birth. Basic Fetal Heart Monitoring begins with understanding intrauterine concepts of antepartum care with antenatal testing. Learn to prepare the mother for a successful outcome by determining the risk factors that contribute to poor outcomes. This course includes a didactic presentation, video of instrumentation of fetal heart monitoring, and practice strips.
Recommended for nursing students, new-grads, and re-entry nurses seeking a position in Maternal Child Care. No clinical experience is required. This course serves as an introductory course to AWHONN Intermediate and Advanced Fetal Heart Monitoring.

Course Objectives:

-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
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.

Postpartum Care, ACLS, NRP

I have taken three classes here and plan on taking more (already signed up for another class this week). They are very friendly and the classes truly are stress-free. I took an ACLS course somewhere else a couple of years ago and it was unnecessarily intense. I will definitely keep coming back here!

It is always such a pleasure taking class with this organization. Everything from the signup process to the checking out at the end of the day was enjoyable and stress free. I will most certainly be back!

Advanced fetal monitoring

When I first heard I would be driving to California to take this class I was thinking, "why me"? After a great drive and seeing new areas, I was so happy to meet a very friendly group of people who made the learning experience fun and informative. Thanks again.

Advance Fetal monitoring

Advanced FHT monitoring . Stress free , second time attending that class with you.

After rave reviews about NEO from a good friend, i decided to give it a try. I just completed my BLS here, and feel that the reviews live up to their reputation....stress free!! I was extremely nervous, but once i arrived, the staff (incl. Betty) were so friendly and helpful and put my fears to rest. I've been considering the Mother/Baby Cluster program since earlier in the year, and have called NUMEROUS times to ask questions. Boriana has been EXTREMELY helpful, and has gone out of her way to help me find what would work best for me. She's always been pleasant, and extremely patient. I'm now ready to get started on the program, and look forward to a wonderful experience obtaining my certifications at NEO! 🙂
