The NHSLA report ‘Ten Years of Maternity Claims’ has highlighted cardiotocograph (CTG) interpretation as a major source of litigation, with the main allegations focusing on the failure to recognize an abnormal CTG and act on it. Failure to refer appropriately and poor documentation were also commonly recognized in the report.

Aims of the Course

This course aims to provide evidence-based training on CTG Interpretation based on fetal physiology and pathophysiology of intrapartum hypoxic injury so as to reduce hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy whilst reducing unnecessary operative interventions.

To understand control of fetal heart rate and the factors that affect the features observed on the Cardiotocograph (CTG)

To understand the types of intrapartum hypoxia and resultant features observed on CTG Trace

To appreciate wider clinical picture such as inflammation, infection and meconium whilst interpretating CTG Traces

To ensure rational application of National Guidelines and additional tests of fetal wellbeing to optimize perinatal outcomes

To effect a paradigm shift from pattern recognition to process recognition whilst interpreting CTG Traces

Course Content

The course covers the pathophysiology of CTG, NICE guidance, acid-base balance, the technology behind CTG and ST–Analyser (STAN) together with an overview of clinical cases and medico-legal learning points.

Principles of Intermittent Auscultation to ensure effective monitoring of low risk pregnancies

Pathophysiology of CTG to help understand physiology behind observed ‘CTG Patterns’

NICE Guidelines – its ‘rational application’ in clinical practice

Use of CTG with special clinical situations such as previous caesarean sections, meconium and oxytocin

Risk management strategies to reduce hypoxic injuries in labour ward

Interactive Case Reviews: to help delegates use the knowledge of physiology in CTG

Interpretation and to determine fetal response to hypoxic stress.

Avoiding medico-legal pitfalls by greater understanding of the types of hypoxia

Understanding the technology behind CTG Machines

Understanding acid–base balance and the role of additional tests of fetal wellbeing to reduce the false positive rate of CTG

Principles of ST–Analyser (STAN) to understand how fetal ECG may help improve outcomes

CTG pre–and post-course tests to help demonstrate change in knowledge by the CTG Masterclass (i.e. outcome)
