Delayed Response Associated with Poor Outcomes in L&D.
The United States has become an outlier among developed nations with a rising rate of maternal deaths.1 In the US, maternal mortality has increased by 51% while the global rate has declined by 32% between 2000 and 2015. At the same time, NICU admissions are on the rise and the incidence of neonatal encephalopathy hovers above 1 per 1,000 births.2
The root cause of many of these unexpected complications has been attributed to delayed recognition and treatment in labor and delivery. There is mounting demand for new tools to rapidly identify worrisome trends and improve the timeliness of care for at-risk mothers and fetuses.
