This case-based module places you into medical scenarios in which you will make decisions about the appropriate handling of a patient situation. The purpose of this module is to review and reinforce training, keeping your skills sharp and patients safe. Throughout each scenario you will be asked questions about your decisions, but your answer choices will not be scored and you will not receive a report. You can move freely throughout the module and visit earlier sections without losing progress on previously answered questions. You can revisit this module in the future as many times as you would like.
Intrapartum fetal heart rate monitoring is an integral part of modern day obstetrics and when properly interpreted, may provide valuable insight into the fetal metabolic state. During labor, the physiologic stress posed by regular uterine contractions and maternal expulsive efforts may adversely impact the fetal acid-base status, leading to changes in the fetal heart rate pattern.
