BREAKING BREAKING HSE says Mullingar now offering mums vital foetal sampling tests

The HSE has announced that as of today, it is carrying out fetal blood sampling at the Midland Regional Hospital in Mullingar.

A Prime Time Investigates special last week found that Mullingar's maternity unit was the only one in the country without a "blood gas analyzer", vital equipment that could save a child’s life, and head off the danger of brain damage through oxygen deprivation.

A statement from the HSE today says that the introduction of the process will complement the range of services already provided at the hospital ensuring a safe service for mothers and babies.

It states that expectant mothers in labour are allocated a midwife; continuous foetal monitoring is carried out via cardiotocograph (CTG); and there is multidisciplinary management of patients' labour i.e.Consultant/Registrar/Anaethiest/midwife.


The HSE adds that clinical obstetrical guidelines are followed and external training is provided on CTG interpretation/ Obststrical emergencies
