The intent of intrapartum fetal surveillance is to assess uterine activity, fetal well-being, and the fetal heart rate (FHR) response to labor in order to make appropriate, physiologically based clinical decisions (Lyndon & Ali, x Lyndon and Ali, Lyndon, A. and Ali, L.U. Fetal heart monitoring: principles and practices.5th ed. Kendall Hunt Publishing, Dubuque, IA; Electronic fetal (heart rate) monitoring (EFM) was developed and introduced into clinical practice during the second half of the 20th century, with the expectation that it would provide information on the well-being of the fetus during labor. In the I-group the fetal heart rate was recorded with electronic fetal monitoring for 10 to 30 min every 2 to h during the first stage of labour, and the fetal heart rate was auscultated every. Electronic Fetal Monitoring is being used worldwide since late 's. It was realized that cardiotocography needs to be complemented by biochemical monitoring to identify a fetus in stress from the fetus in distress. At the same time fetal blood sampling of intrapartum fetus for blood gas analysis was intro-duced by Saling.
