The benefit of fetal heart rate monitoring was evaluated by comparing the perinatal outcome in 1,246 high-risk pregnancies and deliveries - 554 monitored and 692 unmonitored. Intrapartum and early neonatal mortality were significantly lower in the monitored group (P<0.05). This study provides evidence that fetal heart rate monitoring improves the fetal outcome of high-risk deliveries.
