Cardiotocography (CTG) has been recommended for fetal surveillance of high-risk pregnancies in labor in many countries for decades. The test has a high sensitivity, but a low specificity (1), which might have contributed to an increase in cesarean section rate for fetal distress. Therefore, we need a test to identify the truely hypoxic fetuses. The introduction of CTG plus electro-cardiotocography (ECG) ST interval analysis (STAN) was thought to solve this problem.
