A fetal pulse oximeter sensor mounted on a sensor head with an articulating design. A lumen on one side of the sensor has a cable or rod therein to either push or pull that side of the sensor with respect to the main body, thus causing the sensor head to articulate. This can be used, for instance, t ...

An improved fetal pulse oximeter sensor. The friction provided on the sensor head surface to engage the fetus is higher than the friction on the back side of the sensor head. Thus, any contact with a maternal surface by the back side of the sensor head is less likely to dislodge the sensor, since th ...
