It was the 'in' thing to do in Las Vegas...for about a week!
We had all of our monitors updated, did the inservices, learned all about it...and not one of the docs bothered to learn how to place it!
the entire box of probes and cables is gathering dust!
PS rationale for lack of use? Probably because our city has SOOOOOOO
many attorneys and sooooooooo many money-hungry clients who sue, the docs aren't willing to "stand" on the test data that would support continuing to labor a patient with a great fetal pulse oximetry and a LOUSY-LOOKING strip that would really impress a jury ...made up of folks who have nothing better to do in their lives but sit on a jury!
