The ACOG eModule, Fetal Heart Rate Nomenclature, Interpretation, and Management, was developed specifically as a learning resource for the practicing obstetrician-gynecologist. Electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) is the most common obstetric procedure, with 3.4 million fetuses assessed annually in the United States. Despite its widespread use, controversy exists about Its efficacy, interobserver and intraobserver variability, nomenclature systems for interpretation, and management algorithms.
After completing this course, you should be able to:
1. Define nomenclature for fetal heart rate (FHR) assessment
2. Explain data on the efficacy of EFM
3. Describe the EFM classification system
4. Explain evaluation framework and subsequent management of intrapartum EFM patterns.
