Summary: For women in labor, use of continuous cardiotocography (CTG) rather than intermittent auscultation may be associated with an increased likelihood of having a caesarean section or an instrumental vaginal birth, without reducing the likelihood of cerebral palsy or infant mortality (however, CTG may be associated with a reduced risk of neonatal seizures).
