Electronic fetal monitoring has become the primary mode of evaluating the fetus intrapartum, with external Doppler monitoring being the most commonly used method with the criterion standard for fetal heart monitoring, the fetal scalp electrode (FSE), used less frequently. However, Doppler monitoring of fetal heart rate (FHR) presents the possibility of confusion between maternal heart rates (MHRs) and FHRs, referred to as signal ambiguity.
