Intrapartum electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) has widely been used to monitor mothers in labor who are at risk in clinical practice. There is little evidence to describe the association between EFM categories based on the newly proposed National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) 2008 criteria and neonatal outcomes. To investigate the association between intrapartum cardiotocogram categories based on the NICHD 2008 and early neonatal outcomes Intrapartum EFM tracings of 120 singleton pregnant women of equal or more than week gestation Among the 120 mothers, 83 (69.2%) had EFM tracings classified as Category I and 37 (30.8%) as Category II. EFM category II according to NICHD 2008 classification was associated with higher risk of having low Apgar score at 1 minute and neonatal acidosis than EFM category I.
