Why LaborView2018-09-13T15:19:56+00:00

Wireless monitoring puts your focus back on patient care

No more need to reposition Tocos or make frequent and time consuming (attention dividing) adjustments every time mom moves

  • Just set the array once

  • Sensors stay connected and in place

  • No more chasing the fetal heart rate

  • Lets mom ambulate to encourage delivery2 and increase patient satisfaction

The LaborView Electrode Array remained in place even when mothers and babies moved and during epidural placement. No limitation has been established for the length of time a patient may wear a single LaborView disposable array. In the Clinical Performance Trials the electrode arrays remained in place up to 24 hours and nurses did not reposition them¹.

Easily and accurately monitor patients across a wide range of BMIs¹

LaborView is more accurate and easier to interpret than ultrasound in difficult-to-monitor high BMI patients.  Additionally, LaborView is more sensitive, more reliable detecting contractions, and facilitates easier and more reliable interpretation of uterine activity versus Toco; particularly in the high BMI classifications.¹

In Uterine Activity

  • More sensitive and reliable detecting contractions vs. Toco 

  • Easier and more reliable interpretation of uterine activity compared to Toco

Margins selected at boundary of clinical significance 30 min segments collected from patients in stages 1 and 2 720 tracings were read by 2 OB/GYNs and 2 L&D nurses LaborView code named eToco in Shands study report.

In Fetal Heart Rate

  • More accurate than ultrasound

  • Easier to interpret than ultrasound

Reference: 1. FDA Clinical Performance Study.
Definitions: For uterine activity, interpretability was the percentage of strip charts interpretable by blinded clinicians, sensitivity the percentage of contractions detected by blinded clinicians and timing as the difference between time of peaks of contractions. For fetal heart rate, interpretability was the percentage of LaborView FHR equivalent to fetal scalp electrode (FSE) and accuracy the average difference between LaborView and FSE.
