All IUPCs must be “zeroed” to negate atmospheric pressure (193). The INTRAN Plus® can be zeroed before or after insertion. After insertion, this device can be electronically zeroed by opening a sliding “door” (rezero switch) in the proximal end of the catheter near the cable. The UA level of the fetal monitor is set to zero when this “door” is open then the “door” is closed. Some solid IUPCs, such as INTRAN III®, are not equipped with a rezero capability. Therefore, these IUPCs can only be zeroed prior to insertion.

Testing the DECG Cable Block/Leg Plate Some fetal monitors have a ECG cable test capability. Consult the manufacturer’s guidelines. For example, to test the cable of the Hewlett-Packard 8030A® or 8040A® monitors, the cable is plugged into the monitor and the end of the cable block is pressed against two protruding metal pins. The monitor is turned on and the digital readout reads 200 bpm and the audio speaker makes a sound at a 200 bpm rate. To test the cable block of the Hewlett-Packard M1350A®, an electrode must be in the fetus.
