In numerous obstetrical and pediatric departments caring for healthy and sick newborns, continuous heart rate monitoring is used as an indirect reflection of oxygenation. This is based on the theory that a sudden fall in arterial Po2 or chronic hyp-oxaemia is reflected in a change in heart rate and thus, alert the physician to a possible hypoxaemic state.
