PMID:  9620824     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Multiple methods of tocolysis and fetal surveillance provide unprecedented ways to improve multifetal outcomes through meticulous antepartum care. Although few practitioners have much experience with these complicated pregnancies, knowledge is growing with the increasing incidence of multifetal pregnancy. A review of the current literature regarding antepartum surveillance provides the basis for a discussion of the techniques essential to quality nursing care during multifetal pregnancy. Guidelines are provided for nursing standards in documentation, terminology, and care during surveillance of multiple fetuses.
