Fetal Monitoring Errors

It's very important that the nurses and doctors caring for mom are able to properly interpret the fetal heart rate monitor.  Errors in fetal heart rate monitoring can result in damages to the baby's brain because if the baby is not getting enough oxygen the fetal heart rate monitor will show that problem.   If the nurses and doctors are not paying attention or don't recognize the problem they will not know to deliver the baby and this can result in needless harm and risk to the baby.
