By E. Saling, J. Bartnicki (auth.), Molly S. Chatterjee M.D. (eds.)

Biochemical tracking of the fetus has been at the back of each perinatologist's brain. Technological developments were made within the final ten years yet to not the anticipated point. A endured curiosity within the topic can simply be maintained through symposiums of this nature the place perinatologists from diverse nations can proportion their adventure. Laserspectroscopy of the fetus is a helpful addition to this quantity. the way forward for biochemical tracking of the intrapartum fetus depends upon the continuing choice of clinical information and additional technological advances. This winning symposium used to be held in October, 1990, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, united states. i need to thank Hewlett Packard for his or her beneficiant help with no which this e-book do not have been attainable. My honest thank you is going to my secretary, Nancy Whalen, who has performed an immense task with the be aware processing, association, and structure of the chapters. Molly S. Chatterjee, M.

Example text

Carbon dioxide may be measured either invasively or non-invasively 39 by transcutaneous electrodes. A transcutaneous electrode (Radiometer) has been tested in a European multicenter study. If 50 per cent of the cases were defined as "completely normal" and the rest as "possibly abnormal", the "completely normal" tracings were always followed by the delivery of neonates without acidosis. However, the 50 per cent being "possibly abnormal" only included very few acidotic neonates. Consequently, transcutaneous carbon dioxide monitoring during labour reduces the need for fetal blood analyses to a certain extent, but the actual pH is not known.

This is a problem in other areas of the United States as well as the world. How many people can we provide prenatal care to for the cost of one machine or one test? We should not do without the technological advances, but we need to keep in mind that these advances are expensive and there must be a balance. Second, many of you are from University settings and have an impact on teaching medical and midwifery students. It is important for students to learn about technological advances and evaluating and developing research and how to use sophisticated machinery, but we must continue to teach them to use their eyes, ears, and hands also.

Further fetal deterioration, usually accompanied by a reduction in fetal movements, is best detected by a decrease in short term FHR variation. The reason for this preference (in contrast to measurement of long term variation) is that occasionally a sinusoidal rhythm may appear terminally. The amplitude (up to 10 bpm or more) and frequency (l in 2-5 mins) is such that it can contribute to a relatively high measure of long term variation, which would give misleading reassurance. Although such sinusoidal patterns are rare (about 1 in 1,500 records), failure to recognize their sinister significance could lead to an unanticipated intrauterine death.
