Use of Intrapartum Biophysical Profile When Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring is Non-reassuring in Labor

2014-08-27 03:39:24 | BioPortfolio

Summary

In this research project the investigators want to figure out whether ultrasound (a non-invasive method) can be used to assess how the fetus is doing during labor.

Description

When you are in labor, the heart beat of your fetus is monitored continuously. The normal pattern is reactive and suggests that the fetus is doing well. When the pattern is different from reactive, it is difficult to say if the fetus is doing well or not. Previous investigators have shown that even with the most worrisome fetal heart rate pattern, only 2/1000 cases would require immediate delivery. Currently, we use invasive procedures like taking a drop of blood from fetal head to further assess how the fetus is doing or just proceed with the fastest way of delivery (which could increase the risk associated with surgery). In this research project we want to figure out whether ultrasound (a non-invasive method) can be used to assess how the fetus is doing during labor.

Antenatal Testing in Obese Woman, is it Really Necessary?

It is well established that obese women are at an increased risk of stillbirth compared to non obese women. This has led many physicians to begin antenatal testing in obese women in the th...

Evaluation of Fetal Cardiac Function in Rheumatic Heart Disease (RHD) Patients

The goal of this study is to evaluate fetal myocardial performance in patients with heart diseases in comparison to normal pregnant patients.

Maternal Oxygen Administration for Fetal Distress II

Supplementary oxygen is routinely administered to patients, even those with adequate oxygen saturations, in the belief that it increases oxygen delivery. However, oxygen delivery depends n...

Introduction of a new fetal examination protocol for on-field and clinical equine practice.

Prepartum fetal surveillance techniques have been widely used in both human and veterinary obstetrics, although these tests differ in their sensitivity for the assessment of fetal well-being. In equin...

Non-invasive fetal electrocardiography (NI-FECG) shows promise for capturing novel physiological information that may indicate signs of fetal distress. However, significant deterioration in NI-FECG si...

Objective assessment of the fetal facial profile at second and third trimester of pregnancy.

To investigate the intra- and inter-observer reproducibility of a novel sonographic parameter named facial maxillary angle (FMA), and to establish nomograms of FMA, inferior facial angle (IFA), fronta...

The relation of fetal colon and rectum diameters with labor in healthy late-third trimester pregnancies.

To investigate the associations of fetal colon-rectum diameters with labor and fetal distress or meconium passage in healthy pregnancies in the late 3rd trimester.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Premature separation of the normally implanted PLACENTA from the UTERUS. Signs of varying degree of severity include UTERINE BLEEDING, uterine MUSCLE HYPERTONIA, and FETAL DISTRESS or FETAL DEATH.

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.
