Summary "An updated 4th edition of this popular title, teaching student midwives how to interpret CTGs. All midwives need to be able to interpret CTGs to assess fetal wellbeing, identify risk and inform decision making. The sections on litigation and risk management will be updated, as will NICE and RCOG guidelines. A major update for this edition will be to include an electronic version to enable an interactive response to the questions following each case study, and to allow for history notes to be written and stored. Online versions of the CTGs will also enable easy identification of the relevant features in each case. A second colour will also be introduced to the print to help highlight salient points. Clear layout and content Latest guidelines and legislation Structured format of Case History, CTG example, test questions, note-taking, analysis and outcomes." -- Publisher
