Abstract

Aim

Although several studies reported the measurement of fetal oxygen saturation using fetal pulse oximetry (FPO) for evaluation of the fetal intrapartum condition, a systematic review of the seven randomized controlled trials (RCTs) provided no evidence to support FPO for intrapartum fetal monitoring. In the present review, we re‐evaluate an overview for the use of FPO and seven RCTs of FPO.
