Fetal short time variation during labor: a non-invasive alternative to fetal scalp pH measurements?

Sven Schiermeier, Joscha Reinhard, Hendrike Hatzmann, Ralf C. Zimmermann & Gregor Westhof
Objective: To determine whether short time variation (STV) of fetal heart beat correlates with scalp pH measurements during labor. Patients and methods: From 1279 deliveries, 197 women had at least one fetal scalp pH measurement. Using the CTG-Player®, STVs were calculated from the electronically saved cardiotocography (CTG) traces and related to the fetal scalp pH measurements. Results: There was no correlation between STV and fetal scalp pH measurements (r=−0.0592). Conclusions: Fetal STV is an important...
