Talk Abstract

To understand why a world-wide C-section epidemic has developed and the consequential long-term health implications to mother and child. How existing fetal monitors have contributed to the C-section epidemic and how the technology being developed by Raydiant Oximetry could help reduce the unsustainable C-section rates that currently exist.
