This study is being conducted to study light scattering properties of maternal-fetal tissue.
The ISS customized commercial frequency domain oximeter is used to obtain light scattering information from the maternal abdomen for 10-20 minutes preoperatively and postoperatively in subjects who are having a scheduled C-section.

Fetal cardiac monitoring is used during labor. Fetal decelerations may imply fetal hypoxia and distress. Brain activity monitoring is not used to evaluate fetal distress during labor. In t...
This is a feasibility study for a new application for capturing fetal cardiac activity. The objective of this study is to determine if it is feasible to capture a fetal ECG signal using a ...
Amniotic fluid (AF) pH can be affected by the maternal and/or fetal conditions such as PPROM, prematurity or fetal distress. It is known that fetal urine is the major content of AF since 2...
A stillbirth describes when a baby dies after 24 weeks of pregnancy and before being born. In the UK there are roughly 9 stillbirths every day. Normally, before a stillbirth occurs changes...
The goal of this study is to evaluate fetal myocardial performance in patients with heart diseases in comparison to normal pregnant patients.
The aim of this work was to investigate the association between maternal and fetal characteristics and the fetal fraction at 8-14 weeks' gestation, with emphasis on the change in the fetal fraction up...
Regular fetal heart rate monitoring during labor can drastically reduce fresh stillbirths and neonatal mortality through early detection and management of fetal distress. Fetal monitoring in low-resou...
Palliative care concentrates on preventing and relieving suffering by reducing the severity of disease symptoms. Consistent treatment of pain and distress must therefore be an integral component of ev...
Non-invasive fetal electrocardiography (ECG) is a promising method for evaluating fetal cardiac electrical activity. Despite advances in fetal ECG technology, its ability to provide reliable, interpre...
Rare causes of fetal anemia requiring intrauterine transfusion (IUT) are challenging for fetal medicine specialists.
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.
Removal of a MEDICAL DEVICE from the market due to the identification of an intrinsic property of the device that results in a serious risk to public health.
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.
