Video Question of the Month

How many lates do there need to be before the clinicians should be concerned?

Lisa answers this question and others each month in a new video feature that explores answers to some of her most commonly asked questions.

Find the Right Tool

Lisa has developed a number of tools that support clinicians in applying the NICHD terminology and utilizing the standardized approach to intrapartum EFM taught by Lisa and her co-author, Dr. David Miller. Helpful resources like Lisa’s textbooks and EFM ruler are available for purchase here.

ReadRight EFM Ruler

Developed to assist clinicians in applying the NICHD terminology to actual FHR tracings, the ruler is designed as a visual aid to determine baseline rate, baseline variability, and deceleration type based on onset to nadir (gradual vs. abrupt).

Guide to Fetal Monitoring

Lisa is co-author of “8th Edition of Mosby’s Pocket Guide to Fetal Monitoring: A Multidisciplinary Approach.” This portable, practical guide provides a multidisciplinary, evidence-based approach to fetal monitoring that’s ideal for use in the clinical environment.

Testimonials

“When our facility hosted an Advanced Fetal Monitoring course by Lisa Miller, we were excited to provide nurses and physicians in our area the opportunity to benefit from her evidenced-based approach. Lisa’s approach to fetal monitoring enriched learning for our entire obstetric staff, including our physicians, as they learned side by side with nurses in the same class. Even our most doubtful physicians acknowledged her expertise and stated that she had enhanced their practice of fetal monitoring interpretation and management. We will definitely be having her return!”

“I am usually skeptical of ‘multidisciplinary’ fetal monitor conferences but Lisa Miller’s class hit a home run.”

“I just wanted to take a moment to thank you again for the wonderful OB on Trial and EFM Review course last week in NY. As I mentioned last week, I was lucky enough to attend one of your classes back in 2009. I had been out of OB for a while to start a family and the NICHD nomenclature had changed while I was not working L&D. I happened to have a deposition scheduled 3 days after taking your course for a case in which I had been a charge RN on the floor when we had a bad outcome. I took the course and spent the next few days reviewing the NICHD guidelines prior to my deposition. The deposition went so well that the attorney offered to use me as an expert if I obtained my certification and I was never called to testify at trial. Thank you!”
