SIM2212 - Wireless Cardiotocograph (CTG) monitoring



A safety issue has been identified with the use of wireless cardiotocograph (CTG) monitoring. A CTG machine being used with a wired transducer went into wireless mode unexpectedly. It started to pick up the signal from a transducer in an adjacent room, where CTG monitoring was also being undertaken wirelessly, and printed out the fetal monitoring trace from that adjacent room. NHS England has issued safety advice in the interim whilst investigations continue.
