TIP #10: Ensure the FHR monitor is tracking the fetal, not the maternal, heart rate
Because there is an increased risk of miscarriage in foetuses with slower heart rates consideration should be given to a followup ultrasound examination, if the FHR is less than the lower limits of normal for a given GA.
Some practitioners find it beneficial to actually use the EFM as an IA device since it is essentially just a Doppler that records a FHR tracing or "strip.
The algorithm is a crucial part for processing the AECG to detect the R peaks in QRS complex of MECG and FECG for measuring the MHR and FHR respectively.
The monitors reported at uniform sampling rates of 4 Hz for FHR (measured in beats per minute [bpm]) and 1 Hz for UP (measured in mmHg), which we up-sampled to 4 Hz by zero-insertion and low-pass filtering.
Each HPWH is run through the FHR test in each of its three primary appliance settings: High-Efficiency, Hybrid, and All-Resistance.
Studies from Queen's University have compared the effectiveness of using FHR monitoring, blood gasses and acid-base evaluation to detect early hypoxia in vaginal deliveries, with acceptable results (17).
Nevertheless, the FHR showed higher amplitude of rise while the electromagnetic field was generated than when the phone was switched off.

The observation that the NHU sample required 50-fold concentration to obtain clearly detectable FH, FHL-1, and FHR-1 bands indicated that the amounts of FH and FHRs are much higher in the patient urine samples than in NHU, as expected on the basis of previous reports (11 ).
