Randomized studies have obtained conflicting results regarding the usefulness of fetal electrocardiographic (ECG) ST-segment analysis, possibly because these studies included non-homogeneous populations. We designed a study to determine whether this monitoring technique is potentially useful for populations at risk for fetal heart rate alterations during labor, i.e. groups of women who share late-term pregnancy as a risk factor.

To determine the relationship between the colour of liquor and the trace of cardiotocography to see whether it is reactive or non-reactive..
Computerized analysis of cardiotocograms and ST signals is associated with significant reductions in hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy and cesarean delivery: an observational study in 38 466 deliveries.
Intrapartum cardiotocography (CTG) is widely used in high-resource countries and remains at the centre of fetal monitoring and the decision to intervene, but there is ample evidence of poor reliabilit...
In the past century, some areas of obstetric including intrapartum care have been slow to benefit from the dramatic advances in technology and medical care. Although fetal heart rate monitoring (cardi...
Cardiotocography (CTG) is an important tool for fetal surveillance in severe early-onset fetal growth restriction (FGR). Assessment of the CTG is usually performed visually (vCTG). However, it is sugg...
Umbilical artery blood analysis is assumed to give a picture of the acid-base balance of the infant at birth and is considered the gold standard to diagnose neonatal acidemia at birth. The evaluation ...
Electronic fetal hear rate monitoring (EFM), or cardiotocography (CTG), records changes in fetal heart rate and their temporal relationship to uterine contraction. It has been developed wi...
The study will focus in evaluation of fetal cardiac function by using myocardial performance index in fetuses with abnormal cardiotocography in 3rd trimester.
Cardiotocography (CTG) is widely used during labour wards in industrialised countries and consists of fetal heart rate and uterine contraction monitoring. The main aim is to identify fetus...
The hypothesis of this study is that maternal and fetal biologic variation in the balance between pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory mediators can be measured by currently available te...
Admission CTG for 20 minutes Settings on a CTG machine was standardised to enable a consistent approach of interpretation of traces. Paper speed of 3cm per minute will be adopted. Maternal...
Monitoring of fetal heart frequency before birth in order to assess impending prematurity in relation to the pattern or intensity of antepartum UTERINE CONTRACTION.
A nonreassuring fetal status (NRFS) indicating that the FETUS is compromised (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists 1988). It can be identified by sub-optimal values in FETAL HEART RATE; oxygenation of FETAL BLOOD; and other parameters.
A complication of pregnancy in which the UMBILICAL CORD wraps around the fetal neck once or multiple times. In some cases, cord entanglement around fetal neck may not affect pregnancy outcome significantly. In others, the nuchal cord may lead to restricted fetal blood flow, oxygen transport, fetal development, fetal movement, and complicated delivery at birth.
Prenatal interventions to correct fetal anomalies or treat FETAL DISEASES in utero. Fetal therapies include several major areas, such as open surgery; FETOSCOPY; pharmacological therapy; INTRAUTERINE TRANSFUSION; STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION; and GENE THERAPY.
Pregnancy complication where fetal blood vessels, normally inside the umbilical cord, are left unprotected and cross FETAL MEMBRANES. It is associated with antepartum bleeding and FETAL DEATH and STILLBIRTH due to exsanguination.
