How to Read Contractions on a Fetal Monitor

During pregnancy, it is important to monitor the contractions of the uterus. The fetal monitor is a machine that helps to do this. It is important to know how to read the contractions on the fetal monitor so that you can be sure that the baby is doing well.

The first thing you need to do is to find the baseline. This is the line that shows the resting state of the uterus. It is usually a flat line. The next thing you need to do is to find the peak. This is the highest point of the contraction. It is important to note the time between the baseline and the peak. This is called the contraction interval. The contraction interval should be between 30 and 60 seconds.

The next thing you need to do is to find the duration of the contraction. This is the time from the beginning of the contraction to the end. The duration should be between 60 and 90 seconds.

The next thing you need to do is to find the intensity of the contraction. This is the amount of pressure that the contraction puts on the cervix. The intensity is measured in mmHg. The intensity should be between 30 and 60 mmHg.

The next thing you need to do is to find the resting tone. This is the tone of the uterus when it is not contracting. The resting tone should be between 10 and 20 mmHg.

The next thing you need to do is to find the contraction waveform. This is the shape of the contraction. It should be a smooth, rounded wave. If the wave is jagged, it may be a sign that the baby is in distress.

The next thing you need to do is to find the baseline variability. This is the amount of time that the baseline changes. It should be between 0.5 and 2.0 seconds. If the baseline variability is more than 2.0 seconds, it may be a sign that the baby is in distress.

The next thing you need to do is to find the decelerations. These are changes in the fetal heart rate that happen during contractions. They should be shallow and short. If they are deep or long, it may be a sign that the baby is in distress.

The next thing you need to do is to find the accelerations. These are increases in the fetal heart rate that happen during contractions. They should be short and sharp. If they are long or flat, it may be a sign that the baby is in distress.

The next thing you need to do is to find the variability. This is the amount of time that the fetal heart rate changes. It should be between 0.5 and 2.0 seconds. If the variability is more than 2.0 seconds, it may be a sign that the baby is in distress.

The next thing you need to do is to find the ST segment. This is the part of the contraction where the heart rate slows down. It should be between 0.5 and 1.0 seconds. If the ST segment is more than 1.0 second, it may be a sign that the baby is in distress.

The next thing you need to do is to find the QRS complex. This is the part of the contraction where the heart rate speeds up. It should be between 0.1 and 0.2 seconds. If the QRS complex is more than 0.2 seconds, it may be a sign that the baby is in distress.

The next thing you need to do is to find the T wave. This is the part of the contraction where the heart rate returns to normal. It should be between 0.1 and 0.2 seconds. If the T wave is more than 0.2 seconds, it may be a sign that the baby is in distress.

The next thing you need to do is to find the U wave. This is the part of the contraction where the heart rate slows down again. It should be between 0.1 and 0.2 seconds. If the U wave is more than 0.2 seconds, it may be a sign that the baby is in distress.

The next thing you need to do is to find the QT interval. This is the time from the beginning of the QRS complex to the end of the T wave. It should be between 0.4 and 0.5 seconds. If the QT interval is more than 0.5 seconds, it may be a sign that the baby is in distress.

The next thing you need to do is to find the PR interval. This is the time from the beginning of the P wave to the beginning of the QRS complex. It should be between 0.12 and 0.2 seconds. If the PR interval is more than 0.2 seconds, it may be a sign that the baby is in distress.

The next thing you need to do is to find the QRS axis. This is the angle between the QRS complex and the baseline. It should be between -30 and +30 degrees. If the QRS axis is more than +30 degrees, it may be a sign that the baby is in distress.
