Summary of "Routine use of antenatal nonstress tests in pregnant women with diabetes-What is the practice?"

Pregnancies complicated by maternal preexisting diabetes have a 4-5-fold increased risk of stillbirth, and consequently routine antenatal nonstress testing (NST) was implemented into clinical practice decades ago. Though, international guidelines lack consensus and recommend anything from twice weekly testing from 32 weeks to once weekly testing from 38 weeks. The objective of this study was to examine how routine antenatal NST was used in centers with specific interest and dedication in the care of pregnant women with preexisting diabetes.
