Heart Rate Variability: How Much Can We Rely Upon It?
Presented by Emily Hamilton, MD CM
Senior Vice President of Clinical Research
Why you should attend this webinar:
The Category 1,2,3 EFM classification method and its associated management recommendations place high reliance upon moderate baseline variability, based on the assumption that it predicts the absence of acidemia at that time. Join us to review a growing body of work with different conclusions about this important concept.
Attendees will learn about
1. The 3 physiological systems controlling heart rate variability and how they respond to labor.
2. The latest literature with respect to how often babies with metabolic acidosis will have moderate variability.
3. The differences between visual assessment of variability and computerized measurement of variability
Who should attend:
Staff Nurses, Nurse Midwives, Physicians, Educators, Nurse Managers, CNOs, CMOs, Patient Safety and Quality Advocates, Risk Managers
