Fetal monitor is a device used to listen to a baby’s heartbeat during labor and delivery to check for early signs of distress so that adjustments in approach to the labor can be made if necessary. Some hospitals have devices that work wirelessly so the mother can walk around while being monitored. Sollae Systems’ serial WLAN device server and networking module can be applied in a fetal monitoring system to provide WLAN communications.
Sollae Systems’ device server allows the fetal monitor to directly accessible from the central fetal monitoring system over WLAN so that doctors and nurses can keep tabs on how a fetus is doing and see how it is tolerating contractions. It also helps them stay informed of the duration of the mother’s labor or any suspicious problems.
