CTG Connectivity Kit

(CTG) is a technical means of recording the fetal heartbeat and the uterine contractions during pregnancy.

When mums are admitted to Triage for monitoring of baby there is sometimes only one midwife in attendance with all other staff based on labour ward, the time it can take for a consultant or senior staff member to attend and provide a second opinion could be deemed to be too long in certain circumstances.  By linking up the CTG machines in Triage to the monitors being watched over in Labour Ward the opportunity to provide care to mum and baby is greatly improved.

The three machines in Triage are being linked to those in Labour Ward in June at a cost of £6,690.

The link up is taking place today 20th June around 1pm!!!
