Reducing neonatal morbidity and mortality

Challenge Intrapartum fetal monitoring is used to identify oxygen deprivation to the fetal brain during labour and delivery, to reduce the risk of neonatal morbidity and mortality. However, the current “gold-standard” approach to fetal monitoring is not accurate, is susceptible to misinterpretation and is unreliable. 

Solution The AI-4-Life team will develop a novel AI-based system to monitor the vital signs of mother and baby during labour to quickly identify any issues.
