A framework for the fetal monitoring and control over fetal heart tones (FHT) is helpful, especially across category II FHT. Control over FHT is directed to identify academic or hypoxemic fetuses while using the three-tiered classification system to be able to expedite delivery and prevent neurologic injuries and death.
After the delivery, an assortment of cord pH is helpful in handling fetal acidosis, and the correlation of the FHT with cord pH outcome can be useful. An umbilical artery bloodstream gas should be collected in almost any fetus with suspected metabolic abnormality, particularly in the fetus with five or 10-minute Apgar of less than five, category III FHT, maternal fever or low birth weight.
Although electronic fetal heart rate monitoring (EFM) has limitations, there are some data to assist to decrease the intrapartum fetal death. Numerous ongoing researches are warranted to enhance outcomes and reduce long-term neurologic impairment.
