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 under 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 monitors 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. Recordings are taken at times selected by patients, or whenever alarming symptoms occur. In addition to the medical aspects and the ability for swift action to be taken in the event of an emergency, Remote Maternity Care allows a woman to listen to her baby’s heartbeat at any time, which positively affects their emotional and mental well-being.
The e-Care platform supports medical staff’s work and helps automatically qualify cardiotocographic examination results based on algorithms that describe:
- Baseline Fetal Heart Rate (BFHR)
- Bradycardia and tachycardia
- Long-term variability (LTV)
- Short-term variability (STV)
