Cardiotocography revisited

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The interpretation of cardiotocograph (CTG) evidence is a crucial feature in many legal claims. A case heard in the Court of Session in Edinburgh in June (Lowe v Yorkhill) is of interest to midwives for three reasons in particular. The first concerns the ability to assess intrapartum CTG recordings; the second is the use of documentary evidence that can be used when deciding whether clinical actions were negligent or not; and the third concerns the advisability of experts criticising the actions or opinions of those in another profession.
