Abstract

A prior survey of physiologic monitoring practices during maternal air medical transport by helicopter found that cardiotocography is rarely utilized. The authors report their experience with fetal heart-rate monitoring during helicopter transport of high-risk mothers. The technique is as readily applied to the care of the patient in a helicopter as it is in the modern labor and delivery suite. The study found no substantial reasons why such monitoring should not be used in air medical transport.
