(Difficulty in recruiting)
The purpose of this study is to compare the Monica AN24 fetal monitor to previously FDA approved devices for Fetal Heart Rate and Uterine Contractions in labor for Multiples and pre term labor.
Condition or disease
Pre Term LaborMultiple Pregnancy
Clinical Investigation for a non-inferiority/equivalence study that aims to determine the acceptable performance of the Monica AN24 during the first and when possible the second stages of labor by determining whether the Monica AN24 fetal heart rate (FHR) and uterine contractions (UC) monitoring device is non-inferior/equivalent to Doppler FHR and tocodynamometer UC using direct fetal scalp electrode (FSE) FHR and intrauterine pressure catheter (IUPC) UC as a reference, either collected simultaneously with the Monica and Doppler FHR/tocodynamometer UC data, or from previous studies to define the expected accuracy and success rate when comparing Monica FHR and UC with Doppler FHR and tocodynamometer UC respectively
