Fetal Heart Tracing

Fetal Heart Tracing Injury Lawyer

Fetal Heart Tracing in Atlanta Birth Injury Cases

Nearly any birth which occurs in a hospital today will be performed with the assistance of a cardiotocograph (CTG), a monitor which traces the activity of the baby's heartbeat along with the pattern of the uterine contractions. This tool is used to track the progress of childbirth, as well as to predict and diagnose labor & delivery problems before they cause harm to the mother or child. The printouts from the machine also become important records in the event of a medical malpractice lawsuit, as they may be useful in establishing that negligence on the part of a nurse or doctor is at fault for the injury.

Negligent Fetal Heart Tracing in Atlanta

Hospitals will typically set up two separate printouts for the cardiotocograph, one in the delivery room beside the mother, and the other at the nurses' station. The doctor and nurses are expected to continuously monitor the accelerations and decelerations of the baby's heartbeat to determine whether labor is progressing normally or if there are signs of fetal distress. Failure to take action could cause the baby to suffer hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) or other types of birth injuries associated with oxygen deprivation. If you suspect that negligence in monitoring your baby's heart rate is at fault for an injury during birth, call us as soon as possible, so that we can determine whether you have grounds for legal action.
