A fetal monitor is a machine used to monitor the condition of the fetus by simultaneously measuring and recording:
FHR is detected by using an ultrasound transducer. The movement of the fetal heart affects the frequency of the reflected ultrasound. FHR is calculated from this reflected ultrasound and is usually used to monitor the oxygen delivery status.
UA is detected by a TOCO transducer which contains a pressure sensor. UA is used to monitor the interval, period, and intensity of uterine contraction. UA may be called UC (Uterine Contraction)
FM is detected by an ultrasound transducer. The movement of the fetus’ body affects the frequency of the reflected ultrasound. FM is calculated from this reflected ultrasound and usually used to evaluate fetus status during NST (Non-Stress Test)
A patient monitor is a medical device capable of continually checking, observing, and recording the vital signs of patients. These vital signs include:
Physicians keep track of these vital signs when monitoring anesthetized or critical care patients.
A measure of the subtle voltage differences on the body surface around the heart to monitor the status of heart function. Heart rate is calculated from ECG in real-time.
The force that circulating blood exerts on the walls of the arteries.
Pulse oximetry provides early information on problems in the delivery of oxygen to the tissue. Those problems may arise because of improper gas mixtures, blocked hoses or airways, inadequate ventilation, diffusion, or circulation.
