Summary of "Management of reduced fetal movement: A comparative analysis of two audits at a tertiary care clinical service."

Reduced fetal movement (RFM) is a commonly presenting worrisome complaint, both for mothers and attending clinicians. The aim of this study was to review the management of RFM before and following the implementation of new hospital guideline and to determine pregnancy outcomes following single vs repeated consultations with complaints of RFM. We also compared the standards in our old and new trust guidelines against published guidance from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG).

Physical activity of the FETUS in utero. Gross or fine fetal body movement can be monitored by the mother, PALPATION, or ULTRASONOGRAPHY.

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.

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.
