Remote Fetal Heart Monitoring at Medical City Plano
While most labors are complication-free, you never know when something could go wrong. Therefore, you must undergo constant observation throughout labor to protect your health and that of your soon-to-be newborn.
At Medical City Plano, leading-edge remote monitoring technology like AirStrip OB™ allows you and your baby to be closely monitored by your OB / GYN - even when he or she is away from the hospital. Using his or her smart-phone, your doctor can see:
- Your baby's heart rate
- Your contractions
- Your vital signs
- Nurses' notes regarding your labor
This crucial information is available in real-time 24 hours a day, seven days a week. So you can be assured that, even when your doctor isn't physically present, he or she is checking on you. If anything looks suspicious, your physician will immediately coordinate with nurses to get the help you need while he or she is on the way.
And remember, two board-certified OB / GYN hospitalists, or hospital-based doctors are always here - day or night - to care for you during emergencies and any time your own doctor is unavailable.
