The objective of this study was to analyze ST segment analyses (STAN) using simultaneous traditional - gold standard invasive (fetal scalp electrode) and newly available non-invasive abdominal fetal electrocardiography (fECG) during delivery.This was a prospective observational study of non-invasive fetal ECG using 5 abdominally sited electrodes (Monica AN24(TM)) against the traditional fetal scalp electrodes (STAN S31(TM)) on 6 patients. Data were analyzed when the STAN S31(TM) found the baseline and when there was a baseline rise.Successful fECG signal acquisition was achieved in 6/6 (100%) patients. Using the non-invasive fECG, P and QRS waves were seen in all cases, and T waves in 3/6 (50%). ST segment analysis analysis was possible in 6/6 (100%) and 3/6 (50%) using invasive and non-invasive fECG, respectively.This study demonstrates that ST segment analysis is feasible using invasive and non-invasive fECG. Further studies are warranted to confirm the preliminary results and improve ECG morphology of non-invasive fECG.
