What equip is needed for monitoring during hydrotherapy?

What do you mean? Monitoring for what exactly. Whirlpools are for wound debridement.

For intermittent auscultation you just need a doppler (intermittent auscultation meets the AWHONN standard and is equally affective as continuous monitoring in a low risk patient with lower morbidity).

For continuous monitoring you need submersible telemetry monitors. There is another thread about waterbirth where people are discussing what type they use in their facility, seems like Phillips is a popular brand.
