Safer Deliveries Using Point-of-Care Decision Support and Monitoring

The Safer Deliveries project will improve the ability of nurses and midwives to identify danger signs for a woman and her baby during the critical period of labor and delivery and link these measures to specific decision support rules that guide the health worker in taking corrective action. Using ultra-low-cost disposable ECG leads, D-tree International will build a phone based device that provides continuous tracking of fetal and maternal heart rate and uterine contractions during labor and delivery leading to more timely and effective interventions to save the life of the mother and infant.
