In 1980, University of Oxford Professors Geoffrey Dawes and Chris Redman initiated a pioneering programme to computerise the recognition of diagnostic features of electronic fetal heart rate traces before labour. The Dawes-Redman CTG Analysis System represents one of the University’s most successful and long-standing clinical advances, and is widely recognised as the reference standard for the assessment of fetal health during pregnancy.
The Dawes-Redman Education site offers virtual training sessions. Whether you are an Obstetric consultant with many years of Dawes-Redman experience, a student midwife, SHO or experienced antenatal midwife, we hope that you will enjoy, and benefit from these sessions. Find out more
A LIFETIME'S WORK
Prof Redman has been working in obstetric medicine since 1970. He built up the world’s largest database of CTG traces matched with clinical outcomes (now in excess of 100,000 traces), which was used to create the Dawes-Redman CTG Analysis system. Watch this great video celebrating his work.
Pre-eclampsia affects 5% of pregnant women, usually during the second half of pregnancy (from around 20 weeks) or soon after their baby is delivered. It is associated with significant problems in the mother and the baby. Our research examines the molecular mechanisms of pre-eclampsia and explores if we can predict and prevent this disease.
Prof Chris Redman pioneered the concept of the role of a systemic inflammatory response both in normal pregnancy and the clinical stages of pre-eclampsia. He has been the lead author and collaborated on numerous papers on pre-eclampsia, as well as those on computerised analysis of electronic fetal heart rate recordings.
The Dawes-Redman Education site offers sessions for a group booking for up to 50 people and they are currently run by Beth Albert. They incorporate pre-recorded video presentations by Professor Redman who will join the sessions live for the 30 minute questions and answers at the end.
"I found the course very interesting and it gave good underpinning knowledge in the use and introduction of CTG monitoring. I also found the practical aspects from a midwives point of view very helpful."
"I liked the calm mannerism and in-depth knowledge that was imparted."
The Dawes-Redman CTG Monitoring Team are based at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, England. If you would like to speak to us about any questions you have regarding the training, or to arrange a future date please get in touch.
