Evaluate intrapartum and antepartum fetal status with this portable, practical guide! Mosby's Pocket Guide to Fetal Monitoring, 7th Edition provides a multidisciplinary, evidence-based approach model that's ideal for use in the clinical environment. It offers a single definitive source on fetal heart rate monitoring, with the description, characteristics, etiology, clinical significance, and intervention for every tracing. Written by an expert team including nurse-midwife and attorney Lisa Miller, perinatologist David Miller, and RN Susan Martin Tucker, this reference may be used in any location where electronic monitoring is employed for fetal surveillance, such as the labor and delivery suite, the antepartum inpatient unit or ambulatory care setting, and emergency departments and intensive care units caring for pregnant women.

      • Pocket-sized, colorful design offers portability and easy access to information.
      • Patient safety and risk management strategies with case study illustrations and legal commentary include guidelines for providing safe and competent care.
      • Prioritization of fetal monitoring elements helps you make clinical decisions in areas such as fetal heart rate assessment, evaluation, interpretation, and action planning, all supported by evidence-based practice and literature.
      • Descriptions of the relationship between various fetal heart rate patterns and fetal acidemia alert you to important considerations in the care of specific conditions.
      • Coverage of innovative practices supports patient safety and improved quality outcomes in high-reliability perinatal units addressing:
        • Use of a common language for fetal heart rate patterns with a common construct for interpretation
