Abstract

The authors describe 4 cases of falsely recorded fetal heart rate pattern due to technical failure. Interaction of a fetal monitor and an infusion pump may lead to a ‘false’ fetal heart rate tracing, suggesting fetal compromise and masking the actual cardiac activity. The limits of indirect fetal monitoring are stressed.
