Managing Labor with each Contraction

PreTel Solutions

PreTel’s area sensor uterine electromyography (uEMG) monitoring solves the inability of existing technology to accurately identify independent contraction activity of individual regions of the uterus. Identification of this regional activity allows for improved care in the preterm labor patient, managing the progress of labor at time of delivery, and safety to the admiration of induction therapy.

These improvements will avoid unnecessary C-Section deliveries, post-delivery maternal hemorrhage, and expensive neonatal intensive care nursery stays.

PreTel Monitoring Systems

PreTel pregnancy monitoring systems integrate the reporting of fetal heart rate (FHR), maternal heart rate (MHR), contraction activity and individual region activity into a portable patient wearable device. System solutions include interface to existing hospital central monitoring hardware and cloud access for home monitoring applications.

The PreTel pregnancy monitoring system improves both maternal and neonatal outcomes in the labor and delivery department, across hospital systems and throughout integrated health care networks.

PreTel Area Sensors

Pregnancy monitoring impacts 4.3 Million births (US) improving both maternal and neonatal outcomes.

Regional uterine monitoring results in:

Supports preterm labor management

Evaluates therapy response

Accurate antepartum assessment

Differentiates false from true labor contractions

Labor progress information

Avoids unnecessary induction or C-section

Safely conducts induction therapy

Avoids tachysystole

PreTel area sensors provide new imformation

Measure regional uterine synchronization

Indicates type of contraction

Evaluates progress of labor

Increase/decrease of synchronization

Addtional Observations & Measurements

Evaluation of oxytocin induction during contraction rest periods

Techology Advantages

Wearable Area Sensor technology provides the determination of the amount of individual regions of the uterus that make up each contraction. This unique uterine EMG technique is combined with fetal and maternal ECG monitoring in the PreTel Juno Pregnancy Monitoring System. The PreTel Juno Pregnancy Monitoring Systemis not commercially available for sale.

Advantages over traditional
monitoring systems:

  • Wearable Sensor Array
    Avoids the need for sensor repositioning by L&D staff
  • Bluetooth Data Transmission
    Allows patient mobility by eliminating sensor cords
  • Integrates Uterine Activity, Fetal and Maternal Heart Rate Monitoring
    Eliminate need for multiple monitoring devices

Advantages over standard
EMG monitoring systems:

  • Directional Regional Uterine Activity Sensor
    Identifies individual regions of contraction activity
  • Proprietary Regional Activity Assessment
    Determines regional coordination and synchronization

PreTel Clinical Management Advantages:

  • Reporting of Regional Progress to Coordination and Synchronization
  • Evaluates preterm labor therapy response
  • Improves antepartum assessment of true and false labor contractions
  • Identifies progress and lack of labor progress to delivery
  • Identifies precursor to tachysystole during induction delivery
