Royal Philips Electronics announced its new line of obstetrical care fetal and maternal monitors, Avalon FM20 antepartum and Avalon FM30 intrapartum. Built on Philips IntelliVue patient monitoring platform, the fetal monitors feature enhanced functionality and documentation capabilities in a compact and ergonomic product. Both monitors can be used to monitor multiple births, with advanced features that include high-quality ultrasound tracing and cross channel verification, a feature that reduces the risk of confusing maternal and fetal heart rate signals.

"Obstetrics commands the highest standards in patient safety and documentation," said David Russell, vice president of global marketing, patient monitoring, for Philips Medical Systems. "Our new fetal monitors are designed to help clinicians improve patient outcomes with reliable monitoring throughout a mother's pregnancy. Safety features like cross channel verification, and innovative functionality, including an easy-to-use interface with touchscreen operation and large, numeric, color screen displays, advance the care team's ability to provide high-quality care. "

The monitors integrate monitoring of maternal blood pressure and pulse rate with measurement of multiple fetal heart rates and uterine activity. The Avalon FM30 covers patients from the onset of contractions through the final stages of delivery with its full set of external and internal fetal parameters, such as fetal heart rate via ultrasound or direct fetal ECG, and internal and external uterine activity. It also provides maternal monitoring capabilities such as non-invasive blood pressure, pulse oximetry, ECG and heart rate.

The monitors have the capability to monitor triplets (not available in the U.S.) with high-quality three-channel ultrasound tracing and coincidence detection between all heart rate channels. Data from the monitors can be automatically transmitted to the Philips OB TraceVue obstetrical information system for comprehensive information management across the obstetrical care continuum, from the beginning of pregnancy to postpartum visits across multiple pregnancies.
