    Electronic Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring, Third EditionKnowledge of electronic fetal heart rate monitoring is crucial to OB nurses. In fact, studies have shown that a lack of understanding around electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) is one of the leading cause of lawsuits. That's what makes our recently published Electronic Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring: The 5-Tier System, Third Edition by Julian T. Parer, Tekoa L. King, and Tomoaki Ikeda so timely and relevant.

    In a new review, Anthony Shanks, MD, from Indiana University School of Medicine, writes for Doody's Review Service that,

    “This is an excellent reference and one that I will be going back to often. It is easy to read and, more importantly, interesting to read.”

    Electronic Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring: The 5-Tier System, Third Edition reviews the practice of fetal heart rate monitoring. Beginning with a description of the anatomy of fetal circulation, placental function as a respiratory organ, and acid-base balance, it also presents normal fetal cardiovascular and cerebral metabolism.

    • Examines the pathophysiologic mechanisms involved in progressive fetal asphyxia via a review of the seminal animal and human studies conducted in this field
    • Includes a brief summary of fetal heart rate monitoring technology currently used in clinical practice and standard nomenclature for fetal heart rate characteristics
    • Evaluates the scientific basis that supports management algorithms currently in use and recommends the Parer/Ikeda 5-tier system
