Tachycardia, absent baseline variability, absence of accelerations with recurrent prolonged and late decelerations. These findings are highly suggestive of a pathological category III fetal heart rate tracing7, which is strongly associated with adverse neonatal outcome. This cardiotogram was recorded 26 min before the cesarean section.
