Cableless and beltless solutions are the way of the future
New directions in fetal monitoring: cableless and beltless solutions are the way of the future
This webinar, presented by researchers from the Centre for Midwifery, Child and Family Health at the University of Technology Sydney will explore best practice in labour and birth care with regard to fetal moniotring technologies. Presenters will discuss the importance of optimising physiological processes and providing respectful care in pregnancy and birth for each and every woman. Clinical strategies for enabling freedom of movement and positioning for women in labour and birth will be workshopped, and the benefits of using cableless CTG will be discussed.
You will also learn about future directions in fetal monitoring technology, including the results of an Australian trial investigating a new beltless fetal monitoring device. Throughout the webinar, participants will be invited to reflect on the way in which they use fetal monitoring technology and consider whether they can improve women's experiences.
