(Talk Media News) – Talk Media News’ Ellen Ratner spoke with Dr. Melissa Wong about new developments in teaching fetal heart rate tracings — called the palm method of teaching.
Dr. Wong said that the way fetal heart rate tracings are perceived and taught are “completely different.”
“How we’ve always taught fetal heart rate interpretation is in a very step-wise, methodical fashion. That, number one, instriically is prone to error, and, number two, just takes time,” she said. “Whereas whenever you look at how exoerts look at fetal heart rate tracing its very much like looking at pictures — you can immediately identify that immediate pattered recognition once you look at the fetal heart rate tracing.”
The goal is to teach how to students to perceive, rather than go into the “minuscule details,” Dr. Wong said.
