OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to estimate the impact of internal monitors (fetal scalp electrode [FSE] and intrauterine pressure catheter [IUPC]) on maternal and neonatal outcomes. STUDY DESIGN: The study comprised a retrospective cohort of all women who were admitted for labor from 2004-2008. Women with internal monitors (FSE, IUPC, or both) were compared with women without internal monitors. Maternal outcomes were maternal fever and cesarean delivery. Neonatal outcomes were a composite of 5-minute Apgar score of ≤3, cord pH
