Here in Canada, our guidelines are that "fetal distress" cannot be diagnosed in labor. This is because, as a pp stated, interpretation is very, very subjective. You can label a FH tracing "non-reassuring" (actually, they just recently changed the nomenclature to "normal", "abnormal" and "atypical"), but true fetal distress is something that can only be diagnosed afterwards, by combining an abnormal tracing and the baby's cord blood gases showing fetal compromise.
