Remote Maternity Care is a solution for safely monitoring a baby’s heart rate and uterine contraction activity at home. Using mobile devices, patients can perform non-invasive CTG tests at any time and in any place. Data are automatically transferred to the dedicated e-Care Remote Maternity Care Center for a detailed analysis. Medical staff interpret the test results within the framework of dedicated procedures, and take action where any risk to the health or life of patient or baby is identified.
CTG tests allow early recognition of any risks to the baby’s life. Cardiotocography is the fundamental and most popular non-invasive method for monitoring the baby’s health during the pregnancy and in the perinatal period. The solution is intended for women between the 36th and 42nd weeks of single pregnancies. Before entering the Remote Care mode, each patient needs a consultation with their obstetrician for qualification purposes.
Patients perform their CTG tests according to the instructions of their doctor or midwife, at recommended intervals and times, and in recommended conditions. The monitoring is dedicated to women with a history of pregnancy problems, with coexistent illnesses, or of a certain age .
Patients perform their CTG tests individually. Recording takes 30 minutes, and the result is automatically transferred to the Remote Medical Care Center for interpretation and description. After each measurement the patient receives information on the result. Where any irregularities occur, medical staff take appropriate action.
A patient monitor the health of their baby within their perinatal prophylaxis. In this way pregnant women are being taken care of between appointments with their doctor or midwife.
