The Laerdal Fetal Heart Rate Monitor – MOYO
Laerdal Global Health’s low-cost Fetal Heart Rate (FHR) monitor; MOYO and it’s training program will help providers measure FHR faster, automatically and more accurate to make timely obstetric responses when detecting fetuses at risk. This will reduce the burden of stillbirths and births asphyxia, estimated to account for 2million perinatal deaths annually. 98-99% of these deaths occur in low and middle-income countries.
Expanding the use of MOYO to referring hospitals and dispensaries will help detecting fetuses at risk earlier and improve referrals. Training antenatal care providers and using MOYO at antenatal visits, will improve the antenatal follow-up, build trust with providers and help encourage mothers to deliver in a safe environment.
