EFM tracing predictive of CPD

  1. Ok, so we all know that early decels at 4 cm can definitely be associated with CPD, but I have a question about another indication. I have heard, at some conference at some point in time, that contractions that are asymmetrically skewed to the left is also associated with CPD. I cannot, however, find any reference or source for this information.

    Coupling and tripling of contractions can sometimes mean that your baby is just too fat to fit, especially early on and you can't "pit thru them".
