Absent or erratic fetal electrocardiographic signal can result in artifactual electronic fetal heart rate recording. We report a case where detection of maternal heart rate through internal fetal scalp monitor may have masked intrauterine fetal demise secondary to acute uterine rupture during a VBAC trial.
