The Electronic Fetal Monitoring Program was created by nationally-recognized fetal monitoring experts David A. Miller, MD and Frank C. Miller, MD, in conjunction with GE Healthcare. Recent consensus publications have reshaped the landscape in fetal heart rate monitoring, making it simpler and more practical than it has ever been. This educational program is designed to review and reinforce the standardized fetal heart rate monitoring definitions proposed by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) in 1997 and 2008. The program now features updated analysis and data on FHR patterns and incorporates consensus statements from NICHD, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and other clinical organizations to standardize terminology and interpretation.
The Electronic Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring course consists of four modules with animation and interactive exercises that engage clinicians to learn and apply knowledge into practice situations.
Module 1 – Definitions (“What do I call it?”) Focuses on the standardized NICHD definitions and categories of intrapartum fetal heart rate patterns.
Module 2 – Interpretation (“What does it mean?”) Distills electronic fetal monitoring into three central, practical principles of consistent, standardized interpretation.
Module 3 – Management (“What do I do about it?”) Presents a simplified approach to intrapartum fetal heart rate management that gives clinicians a framework to articulate and formulate a management plan that is consistent, evidence-based, and factually accurate.
Module 4 – Clinical Case Study Provides an interactive case study that brings together all of the concepts introduced in Modules 1 through 3, enabling clinicians to apply and reinforce the course content in an actual clinical scenario.
