Abstract:

Since the 2008, perinatal professionals have been categorizing electronic fetal heart monitoring (EFM) strips according to the nomenclature, provided by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). Category II strip management can be difficult due to interpretation, communication and variance in predicted and actual fetal outcomes. This presentation reviews three actual cases of Category II EFM strip management including outcomes, applicable physiology, nomenclature, interventions and communication strategies.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Differentiate between Category I, II and III electronic fetal monitoring strips.
Objective 2: Identify appropriate interventions for a Category II fetal heart tracing.
Objective 3: Describe communication barriers regarding Category II strip management.
