    This thread is great, but as being an AWHONN Fetal Monitoring Instructor, these sites are not representative of the new NICHD guidelines that AWHONN and ACOG have in place now. These new guidelines include many changes, but one that is the hardest to get used to is that there is no documentation of short term and long term is now just variability. External or Internal monitoring is assesed and documented the same as far as variability is concerned. Also, baselines are to be documented as an average of the variability...such as 140-150, (or 140's) would be 145. I will do some research to see if there is a site out there to post with the new guidelines.
    Thank you!!!
