No more need to see a specialist for a CTG
Pregnant women experience considerable stress when undergoing hospital tests, particularly if they are referred at short notice. Wouldn’t it be convenient if primary-care obstetricians could perform their own CTGs and, in case of any doubt, have the data checked by the hospital? And how much easier would it be if women with high-risk pregnancies could conduct CTGs formerly performed at the hospital right from their home? Well, now they can – as this is exactly what Sense4Baby offers.
What does a Sense4Baby unit include?
Sense4Baby is a mobile version of a CTG (prenatal cardiotocography) monitor. A Sense4Baby unit consists of a compact kit containing the following items: a transducer, a tocodynamometer, a pulse oximeter, a small tablet that displays the readings, and accessories such as chargers, gel and maternity belts. This allows pregnant women and primary-care obstetricians to perform their own CTGs. The data is transmitted to a portal in the cloud, and the hospital can view the data in the portal in real time or at a later stage. Data can also be transmitted directly to the Hospital Information System or Electronic Patient Record through a link.
This remote monitoring service offers pregnant women the benefit of a consultant physician’s medical expertise without the hassle of having to travel to hospital – or, in some cases, having to stay there overnight.
