    A comprehensive assessment begins with the neonate’s history. In this context, history refers to that of the family, the mother, the pregnancy and the birth as well as to the events that have preceded the current evaluation (see Box 1).Relevant family history includes genetic conditions such as congenital heart disease, inborn errors of metabolism, and conditions such as muscular dystrophy. When using intermittent auscultation (IA) to assess uterine activity, nurses should be aware that: A. The examiner's hand should be placed over the fundus before, during, and after contractions. B. The frequency and duration of contractions is measured in seconds for consistency.

    Abstract. The history of fetal heart rate monitoring is a combination of progress in both biomedical technique and obstetrics at the same time. Technical developments range from the first obstetric stethoscopes of around via the second generation cardiotocographs to the modern computer-operated cardiotocograph evaluation systems of our, as it were, third-generation obstetric monitoring. Subsequent observations should be – auscultation of FHR soon after contraction every 15 min for 1 min in the first stage of labour and every 5 min or after every alternate contraction in the.
