To Understand Physiology of Fetal Heart (When does the fetal heart develop ?
What are factors that regulate FHR? What is the Cardiovascular response to hypoxia? )
• Pathophysiology of CTG to help understand physiology behind observed 'CTG Patterns'
• Role of Intermittent Auscultation to ensure effective monitoring of low risk pregnancies.
• To improve your Interpretation of CTG- both Antepartum and Intra-partum .
• Interactive Case Reviews: to help delegates use the knowledge of physiology in CTG Interpretation
and to determine fetal response to hypoxic stress.
• Risk management strategies to reduce hypoxic injuries in labour ward, including the use of
• CTG Guidelines - 'rational application' in clinical practice
Residents, Trainees, GP, Doctors, Nurses, Gynecologist, Healthcare Professionals
What unique about this course
• Demonstrate basic interpretation of the CTG
• Understand the types of intrapartum hypoxia and resultant features observed on CTG Trace
• Understand control of fetal heart rate and the factors that affect the features observed on
the Cardiotocograph (CTG)
• To be able to perform the test correctly; &Interpreted the results satisfactorily & this interpretation
must provoke appropriate response.
