Monitoring of FETAL HEART frequency before birth in order to assess impending prematurity in relation to the pattern or intensity of antepartum UTERINE CONTRACTION.
Physiologic or biochemical monitoring of the fetus. It is usually done during LABOR, OBSTETRIC and may be performed in conjunction with the monitoring of uterine activity. It may also be performed prenatally as when the mother is undergoing surgery.
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.
Deficient oxygenation of FETAL BLOOD.
The heart rate of the FETUS. The normal range at term is between 120 and 160 beats per minute.
A method, developed by Dr. Virginia Apgar, to evaluate a newborn's adjustment to extrauterine life. Five items - heart rate, respiratory effort, muscle tone, reflex irritability, and color - are evaluated 60 seconds after birth and again five minutes later on a scale from 0-2, 0 being the lowest, 2 being normal. The five numbers are added for the Apgar score. A score of 0-3 represents severe distress, 4-7 indicates moderate distress, and a score of 7-10 predicts an absence of difficulty in adjusting to extrauterine life.
The status during which female mammals carry their developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero before birth, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.

A heterogeneous group of nonprogressive motor disorders caused by chronic brain injuries that originate in the prenatal period, perinatal period, or first few years of life. The four major subtypes are spastic, athetoid, ataxic, and mixed cerebral palsy, with spastic forms being the most common. The motor disorder may range from difficulties with fine motor control to severe spasticity (see MUSCLE SPASTICITY) in all limbs. Spastic diplegia (Little disease) is the most common subtype, and is characterized by spasticity that is more prominent in the legs than in the arms. Pathologically, this condition may be associated with LEUKOMALACIA, PERIVENTRICULAR. (From Dev Med Child Neurol 1998 Aug;40(8):520-7)

Longitudinal changes in the ductus venosus, cerebral transverse sinus and cardiotocogram in fetal growth restriction. (1/58)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the changes in flow velocity waveforms in the transverse cerebral sinus in growth-restricted fetuses and to correlate these changes with (1) flow velocity waveforms in the ductus venosus and (2) changes in computerized analysis of the fetal cardiotocogram. DESIGN: Fetuses between 22 and 37 weeks' gestation with an estimated fetal weight below the fifth centile were included in this prospective longitudinal study. Doppler measurements of the umbilical artery, descending aorta, middle cerebral artery, transverse cerebral sinus and ductus venosus were recorded. Fetal heart rate was analyzed by a computer system according to the Dawes-Redman criteria. RESULTS: We measured a significant correlation between pulsatility index in the cerebral transverse sinus and in the ductus venosus over the study period and at delivery. There was a negative correlation between these indices and short- and long-term variability of the fetal heart rate. There was a parallel increase in pulsatility in the ductus venosus and the transverse cerebral sinus. These changes were inversely correlated with fetal heart rate variability and preceded fetal distress. CONCLUSION: Cerebral venous blood flow in IUGR fetuses may be a useful additional investigation to discriminate between fetal adaptation and fetal decompensation in chronic hypoxemia.  (+info)

Reducing risk by improving standards of intrapartum fetal care. (2/58)

Confidential Enquiries into Stillbirths and Deaths in Infancy (CESDI) have pointed to a high frequency of suboptimal intrapartum fetal care of a kind that, in the event of an adverse outcome, is hard to defend in court. In an effort to minimize liability, various strategies were applied in a district hospital labour ward--guidelines, cyclical audit, monthly feedback meetings and training sessions in cardiotocography (CTG). The effects of these interventions on quality of care was assessed by use of the CESDI system in all babies born with an Apgar score of 4 or less at 1 min and/or 7 or less at 5 min. 540 babies (4.3%) had low Apgar scores, and neither the percentage nor gestational age differed significantly between audit periods. In the baseline audit, care was judged suboptimal (grade II/III) in 14 (74%) of 19 cases, and in the next four periods it was 23%, 27%, 27% and 32%. In the latest audit period, after further educational interventions, it was 9%. Many of the failures to recognize or act on abnormal events were related to CTG interpretation. After the interventions there was a significant increase in cord blood pH measurement. There were no differences between audit periods in the proportion of babies with cord pH < 7.2. These results indicate that substantial improvements in quality of intrapartum care can be achieved by a programme of clinical risk management.  (+info)

Randomised controlled trial of cardiotocography versus Doppler auscultation of fetal heart at admission in labour in low risk obstetric population. (3/58)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the effect of admission cardiotocography and Doppler auscultation of the fetal heart on neonatal outcome and levels of obstetric intervention in a low risk obstetric population. DESIGN: Randomised controlled trial. SETTING: Obstetric unit of teaching hospital PARTICIPANTS: Pregnant women who had no obstetric complications that warranted continuous monitoring of fetal heart rate in labour. INTERVENTION: Women were randomised to receive either cardiotocography or Doppler auscultation of the fetal heart when they were admitted in spontaneous uncomplicated labour. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The primary outcome measure was umbilical arterial metabolic acidosis. Secondary outcome measures included other measures of condition at birth and obstetric intervention. RESULTS: There were no significant differences in the incidence of metabolic acidosis or any other measure of neonatal outcome among women who remained at low risk when they were admitted in labour. However, compared with women who received Doppler auscultation, women who had admission cardiotocography were significantly more likely to have continuous fetal heart rate monitoring in labour (odds ratio 1.49, 95% confidence interval 1.26 to 1.76), augmentation of labour (1.26, 1.02 to 1.56), epidural analgesia (1.33, 1.10 to 1.61), and operative delivery (1.36, 1.12 to 1.65). CONCLUSIONS: Compared with Doppler auscultation of the fetal heart, admission cardiotocography does not benefit neonatal outcome in low risk women. Its use results in increased obstetric intervention, including operative delivery.  (+info)

The relation between pre-eclampsia at term and neonatal encephalopathy. (4/58)

OBJECTIVES: To determine whether pre-eclampsia, hypothesised to be an inflammatory condition, is associated with fever in term labour, and confirm and examine the reported association of pre-eclampsia at term with neonatal encephalopathy. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. SETTING: A Dublin teaching hospital. PARTICIPANTS: 6163 women in labour with singleton pregnancies at term at low risk for intrapartum hypoxia, recruited to a randomised trial examining the effect of admission cardiotocography on neonatal outcome. RESULTS: Pre-eclampsia was associated with maternal fever > 37.5 degrees in labour (odds ratio (OR) 3.39, 95% confidence interval (CI) 2.1 to 5.4); this was independent of obstetric intervention (adjusted OR 2.07, 95% CI 1.24 to 3.47). Pre-eclampsia was associated with neonatal encephalopathy (OR 25.5, 95% CI 8.4 to 74.7); this too was independent of obstetric intervention (adjusted OR 18.5, 95% CI 5.9 to 58.1). Cord arterial pH values were significantly lower in pre-eclamptics (7.20 v 7.24), although severe cord acidaemia was not significantly more common (OR 2.91, 95% CI 0.7 to 9.9). The association of pre-eclampsia with encephalopathy was independent of maternal fever (adjusted OR 16.5, 95% CI 5.1 to 54) and cord acidaemia (adjusted OR 13.5, 95% CI 3.2 to 56.7). CONCLUSIONS: The association of pre-eclampsia with maternal fever at term supports the hypothesis that pre-eclampsia is an inflammatory condition. The association of pre-eclampsia with neonatal encephalopathy is independent of obstetric intervention and cannot be explained by either acidaemia or maternal fever. A systemic inflammatory response in the fetus, perhaps secondary to oxidative stress, could explain the link between maternal pre-eclampsia and neonatal encephalopathy, and this may occur through cerebral vasoconstriction.  (+info)

Flecainide in the intrauterine treatment of fetal supraventricular tachycardia. (5/58)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the efficacy of flecainide in the intrauterine treatment of fetal supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) with 1 : 1 atrioventricular conduction. DESIGN: Twenty fetuses (21-35 weeks of gestation) with SVT ranging between 215 and 280 bpm were analyzed retrospectively. Fetuses received flecainide and digoxin as either first, second or third line therapy. Intracardiac blood flow, venous Doppler waveforms and cardiotocograms were evaluated before and after drug induced conversion to sinus rhythm. RESULTS: After initiation of combined flecainide and digoxin therapy, the median time interval until final conversion to sinus rhythm was 5 days (range, 0-14 days). The majority of fetuses (n = 15; 75%) converted to sinus rhythm within 7 days of treatment, whereas the remaining five (25%) showed initial reduction of the heart rate to 160-215 bpm over several days, with restoration of a triphasic venous blood flow pattern before late conversion within 7-14 days after initiation of flecainide treatment. One of these fetuses showed a decrease in fetal heart rate to 160-190 bpm without conversion to sinus rhythm but with resolution of hydrops. All fetuses survived. CONCLUSIONS: Flecainide is safe and highly effective in the intrauterine treatment of hydropic fetuses with supraventricular tachycardia. Conversion into sinus rhythm can be expected 72 h after initiation of therapy but may take up to 14 days. Therefore therapy should be continued beyond 72 h, especially when an initial decrease of fetal heart rate is observed which may represent an early therapeutic response.  (+info)

Unnecessary emergency caesarean section due to silent CTG during anaesthesia? (6/58)

We present a case of a probably unnecessary Caesarean section due to misinterpretation of the cardiotocography (CTG) trace during general anaesthesia. A 27-yr-old patient in her 30th week of an uneventful, normal first pregnancy presented with a deep venous thrombosis in the pelvic region. She was to undergo an emergency thrombectomy under general anaesthesia. During the operation, the CTG showed a lack of beat-to-beat heart rate variation (silent pattern CTG) with normal fetal heart rate. This silent CTG pattern was probably a result of the effect of general anaesthesia on the fetus. The CTG pattern was interpreted as indicating fetal distress, and an emergency Caesarean section was performed after the thrombectomy. The infant was apnoeic and had to be resuscitated and admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit. The pH at delivery was 7.23 and the baby was extubated 2 days later. Mother and child recovered without short-term sequelae. In the absence of alternative explanations, reduced fetal beat-to-beat variability with a normal baseline heart rate during general anaesthesia is probably normal.  (+info)

Uterine rupture: what family physicians need to know. (7/58)

Vaginal birth after cesarean section is common in this country. Physicians providing obstetric care should be aware of the potential complications. Uterine rupture occurs in approximately one of every 67 to 500 women (with one prior low-transverse incision) undergoing a trial of labor for vaginal birth after cesarean section. Rupture poses serious risks to mother and infant. There are no reliable predictors or unequivocal clinical manifestations of rupture, so physicians must maintain a high index of suspicion for possible rupture, especially in the presence of fetal bradycardia or other evidence of fetal distress. Management is surgery for prompt delivery of the infant and control of maternal hemorrhage. Newborns often require admission to an intensive care nursery. Prevention of poor outcomes depends on thorough anticipation and preparation. The physicians and the delivery institution should be prepared to provide emergency surgical and neonatal care in the event of uterine rupture.  (+info)

Variations of multifractal structure in the fetal heartbeats. (8/58)

Several procedures for evaluating fetal well-being are in clinical use. The cardiotocograph is mostly used as a non-invasive procedure to measure fetal well-being in clinical settings. The cardiotocograph displays the fetal heartbeat counts that vibrate. This variation has been classified into 2 categories. We investigated this variation by a novel method, in which we analyzed the change of structure of the attractors in the phase spaces according to the time course. We adopted the global spectrum, which means the distribution of fractal dimensions, for that structure. In this procedure, we discovered a new variation in which the cycle is much longer than the 2 types of known variabilities. Although loud noises such as white noises with a magnitude 1/4 times as large as the standard deviation of the original data were added to the original data, the variations were still detected. The variation is very difficult to detect by Fourier or wavelet transformation, however, because it changes very slowly. Through this new way of analyzing the vibration phenomena, we obtained a new perspective on the biological information available.  (+info)

Cardiotocography (CTG) is a technical means of recording the fetal heartbeat and the uterine contractions during pregnancy. The machine used to perform the monitoring is called a cardiotocograph, more commonly known as an electronic fetal monitor (EFM). Fetal monitoring was invented by Doctors Alan Bradfield, Orvan Hess and Edward Hon. A refined (antepartal, non-invasive, beat-to-beat) version (cardiotocograph) was later developed for Hewlett Packard by Konrad Hammacher. CTG monitoring is widely used to assess fetal wellbeing. A review found that in the antenatal period (before labour) there is no evidence to suggest that monitoring women with high-risk pregnancies benefits the mother or baby although research around this is old and should be interpreted with caution. The same review found that computerised CTG machines resulted in lower numbers of baby deaths than the traditional CTG machines (as shown in picture). More up-to-date research is needed to provide more information around this ...
This database, from the Czech Technical University (CTU) in Prague and the University Hospital in Brno (UHB), contains 552 cardiotocography (CTG) recordings, which were carefully selected from 9164 recordings collected between 2010 and 2012 at UHB.. The CTG recordings start no more than 90 minutes before actual delivery, and each is at most 90 minutes long. Each CTG contains a fetal heart rate (FHR) time series and a uterine contraction (UC) signal, each sampled at 4 Hz.. The priority was to create as homogeneous a set as possible; thus only recordings fulfilling the following criteria were included:. ...

What is the issue?. Is continuous cardiotocography (CTG) to electronically monitor babies heartbeats and wellbeing during labour better at identifying problems than listening intermittently?. Why is this important?. Monitoring babies heartbeats is used to check wellbeing during labour. Listening and recording the babys heartbeat aims to identify babies who are becoming short of oxygen and may benefit from an early delivery by caesarean section or instrumental vaginal birth.. A babys heartbeat can be monitored intermittently using a special trumpet-shaped device, or hand-held Doppler device. The heartbeat can also be checked continuously using a CTG machine. Continuous CTG produces a paper recording of the babys heart rate and the mothers labour contractions. Although continuous CTG provides a written record, mothers cannot move freely during labour, change positions easily, or use a birthing pool to help with comfort and control during labour. It also means that some resources tend to be ...
The fetal electrocardiogram signal (FECG) is a major tool in monitoring and diagnosis of the fetus high risk conditions and arrhythmias. This paper introduces an accurate mathematical model for fetal electrocardiogram based on a real template FECG signal. This is done after elimination of maternal electrocardiogram (MECG) signal interference measured during pregnancy. The parameters of the introduced model are optimized in terms of sum square error using a genetic algorithm (GA). Our precise fetal electrocardiogram model can be a benchmark for other prospective researches particularly in FECG extraction. ©2007 IEEE.. ...

Cardiotocography is a diagnostic test that can check uterine contractions and fetal heartbeat during pregnancy. The instrument used to perform this test is called cardiotocograph. It is also known as Electronic Fetal Monitor (EFM). According to a report made available by Radian Insights, Inc.; the cardiotocograph (CTG) market in the United States is anticipated to witness a healthy CAGR over the forecast period (from 2017 to 2022).. A CTG test is prescribed during the third trimester of pregnancy. It can measure Braxton Hicks contractions that indicate labor. Cardiotocography is usually prescribed if a woman is expecting twins, has low amniotic fluid, and is suffering from placental complications, hypertension, or diabetes. It is sometimes performed during labor when the unborn baby requires continuous monitoring.. Increased governmental and non-governmental initiatives for fetal and maternal health are the key market drivers. Growing awareness and willingness of the key manufacturers to invest ...
OBJECTIVE: To test the application in practice of computerized fetal heart rate (FHR) analysis in pregnancy. DESIGN: Randomized distribution of subjects with computerized analysis automatically revealed or concealed. SETTING: A district general hospital and a teaching hospital outside London. SUBJECTS: 2869 pregnant women studied within a year. OUTCOME MEASURES: Quality and duration of the cardiotocogram; quantitative measurement of FHR variation; number of stillbirths. RESULTS: With interactive advice to the operator, records were of improved quality (up to 28% without signal loss) with potentially much reduced recording time. The short-term FHR variation measured in the last records before intervention is reported for the first time. CONCLUSION: The benefits of using the computers include improvement in record quality and saving of time. In addition, where interpretation depended on estimation of FHR variation there was prima facie evidence of observer misinterpretation; visual analysis was unreliable
The value of STAN (ST analysis) was assessed in 2 randomized trials and shows: 1) A reduction in the incidence of severe hypoxia in fetuses during labor and 2) A reduction in frequency of redemption with suction and caesarean section due to lack of oxygen during the birth process.. Within the last year however, there is substantial new information regarding. STAN. The Swedish Social Board has published a newsletter (17) which describes a possible risk of birth of asphyxiated children, some died and others have cerebral palsy. A new Finnish study (18) suggests that there may be an increased risk of (moderate) acidosis after using STAN.. The above has led to considerable debate, not just in Sweden but also throughout Europe. This has led to the Swedish, Danish (Newsletter 1, Annex 1b) and the common Nordic reference group for STAN orally has announced new clinical guidelines for STAN application. A recently held workshop in Utrecht, Holland will generate joint European guideline, these will be ...

The goal of antepartum fetal surveillance is to prevent fetal death. Antepartum fetal surveillance techniques based on assessment of fetal heart rate (FHR) patterns have been in clinical use for almost four decades and are used along with real-time ultrasonography and umbilical artery Doppler velocimetry to evaluate fetal well-being. Antepartum fetal surveillance techniques are routinely used to assess the risk of fetal death in pregnancies complicated by preexisting maternal conditions (eg, diabetes mellitus) as well as those in which complications have developed (eg, fetal growth restriction). The purpose of this document is to provide a review of the current indications for and techniques of antepartum fetal surveillance and outline management guidelines for antepartum fetal surveillance that are consistent with the best scientific evidence..

Six studies (involving 2105 women) are included. Overall, the included studies were not of high quality, and only two had both adequate randomisation sequence generation and allocation concealment. All studies that were able to be included enrolled only women at increased risk of complications.. Comparison of traditional CTG versus no CTG showed no significant difference identified in perinatal mortality (risk ratio (RR) 2.05, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.95 to 4.42, 2.3% versus 1.1%, four studies, N = 1627, low quality evidence) or potentially preventable deaths (RR 2.46, 95% CI 0.96 to 6.30, four studies, N = 1627), though the meta-analysis was underpowered to assess this outcome. Similarly, there was no significant difference identified in caesarean sections (RR 1.06, 95% CI 0.88 to 1.28, 19.7% versus 18.5%, three trials, N = 1279, low quality evidence). There was also no significant difference identified for secondary outcomes related to Apgar scores less than seven at five minutes (RR ...

The need for analgesia to overcome pain in labour is highly requested by women today. Various ways either non pharmachologic e.g. Emotional sustain, psycho-prophylactic preparation, yoga and hypnosis or pharmachologic such as epidural blockade or parenteral are used. Therefore in our study we evaluated the efficacy and tolerability of the two opioids usually used today in parenteral analgesia to reduce pain during labour: Tramadol and Meperidine. We studied two groups of patients each made up of 20 women in labour, all at term and with a physiologic course of pregnancy. 75 mg i.m ...

Complications occasionally arise during childbirth; these generally require management by an obstetrician. Non-progression of labor (longterm contractions without adequate cervical dilation) is generally treated with cervical prostaglandin gel or intravenous synthetic oxytocin preparations. If this is ineffective, Caesarean section may be necessary. Fetal distress is the development of signs of distress by the child. These may include rising or decreasing heartbeat (monitored on cardiotocography/CTG), shedding of meconium in the amniotic fluid, and other signs.. Non-progression of expulsion (the head or presenting parts are not delivered despite adequate contractions): this can require interventions such as vacuum extraction, forceps extraction and Caesarian section. In the past, a great many women died during or shortly after childbirth (see puerperal fever) but modern medical techniques available in industrialized countries have greatly reduced this total. ...

Still hard to believe that Stan isnt going to knock on the door, or yell Hey Big Guy across the road.. I was driving into the city today for an appointment. Coming south, I remembered a time when we ended up following Stan for about 15 miles. My daughter and I were in our old 1964 Chevy pick-up. Stan was in his Intrepid. We were racing down the highway. I had my hand out the window, making like I was spanking the truck to get it to go faster… Stan was laughing so hard he had to pull over. This was before we became close friends.. Whenever I get sad thinking about Stan, I remember the little things like that.. Stan coming into the yard just to greet our dogs. He used to walk our Sheepie, Max. Until one day, Max got a little excited and tripped Stan. Stan said I decided I didnt need to be hurt by a big dog… let me take one of the little ones out instead. Even so, he always stopped to talk to Max and rub his ears.. I keep checking my email looking for random song lyrics. Whenever a song ...

Pitcher Stan Belinda was drafted with the first pick of the 10th round of the 1986 amateur draft coming out of Allegany College. Belinda was only the second player ever drafted out of Allegany, the first being John Kruk. Stan entered pro ball in the Gulf Coast League with the GCL Pirates in 1986. He had a 3-2 record with 2.66 ERA and seven saves that season. He is best known for being the pitcher in the 9th inning of Game Seven of the 1992 NLCS, when Sid Bream of the Atlanta Braves raced home on Francisco Cabreras pinch hit to score the run that sent the Braves to 1992 World Series. Belinda was the Pirates closer that year, having saved 18 games during the regular season. In 1998, Belinda was diagnosed as being in the early stages of multiple sclerosis. He was a sidearm thrower who relied on a sinking fastball. ...

Too often remembered either as the bolo-bedecked New Wave smart-ass whose mug surfaced from a pot of boiling beans singing the glories of Mexican radio, or some seen-it-all musical reincarnation of Raymond Chandler with a penchant for Ray-Bans and filter-tips, the real Ridgway has often seemed elusive at best. Small wonder; plying his trade in a devalued cult of personality, Stans never underestimated the value of a good persona - indeed, its those second and third party viewpoints that have made many of his story-songs so tellingly jaundiced, if perceptively right on the money ...

Key words: hormones, homeostasis, stress, disorder. Streszczenie: W organizmie człowieka istnieje stan równowagi ustrojowej, określany jako homeostaza. Ten stan może ulec zaburzeniu w przypadku zadziałania stresu. Stres aktywuje dwie komponenty systemu stresowego: centralną - układ podwzgórzowo-przysadkowy, i obwodową - układ sympatyczny i parasympatyczny. Główną rolę w reakcjach stresowych odgrywa układ podwzgórzowo-przysadkowy, a w nim kortykoliberyna (CR H), arginina-wazopresyna (AVP), endorfiny, glukokortykosteroidy, aminy katecholowe oraz adrenalina i noradrenalina. Stres wywołuje negatywne reakcje ustrojowe, które wpływają na proces wzrastania i fizjologię rozrodu, powodują powstawanie różnych endokrynopatii, zaburzeń metabolicznych i zaburzeń układu immunologicznego oraz chorób psychicznych. Oczywiście odgrywają tu także rolę czynniki genetyczne, wpływ środowiska oraz czas oddziaływania stresu ...

N2 - Purpose: To evaluate the clinical significance of intrapartum fetal heart rate (FHR) monitoring in low-risk pregnancies according to guidelines and specific patterns. Methods: An obstetrician, blinded to neonatal outcome, retrospectively reviewed 198 low-risk cases that underwent continuous electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) during the last 2 h before delivery. The tracings were interpreted as normal, suspicious or pathological, according to specific guidelines of EFM and by grouping the different FHR patterns considering baseline, variability, presence of decelerations and bradycardia. The EFM groups and the different FHR-subgroups were ...
Dr. Kumar graduated from University of Singapore in 1977 and worked in Singapore General Hospital (SGH), Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) and Kandang Kerbau Hospital (KKH) during his housemanship year. After completing National Service in the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF), he undertook his postgraduate training as a trainee in the University Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, KKH, and obtained his specialist degrees in 1984. He subsequently joined the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, University of Singapore (later called National University of Singapore), as an academic staff member and continued his career as a Lecturer, Senior Lecturer and Associate Professor in the department from 1984 - 2003.. In 1987, he was awarded the Overseas Postgraduate Research Scholarship by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) of Australia to pursue his PhD degree at Monash University , Melbourne , Australia . His thesis involved the study of the effects of exogenous gonadotrophins on ...
Fetal heart rate recordings were examined in 953 patients with special reference to the different patterns occurring during labor. After delivery the infants were examined with special emphasis on evidence of growth retardation, defined as birthweight below the 10th percentile for the gestational age. Heart rate patterns of growth retarded infants were compared with those of normal newborns. A statistically significant increase in early, late, and variable decelerations was noted in infants with growth retardation. The difference in loss of beat to beat variation was not statistically significant. Also, as might have been expected, low Apgar scores were found more frequently in the small for gestational age infants.. ...
MANAGEMENT OF FGR DUE TO UTEROPLACENTAL INSUFFICIENCY. The majority of FGR pregnancies are due to inadequate transfer of nutrients and oxygen from the mother to the fetus (uteroplacental insufficiency) and therefore would be structurally and chromosomally normal.. There is no robust evidence that any intervention or bed rest in healthy women improves the growth of FGR fetuses. Therefore, management of FGR due to uteroplacental insufficiency generally involves regular fetal assessments to identify fetuses that are at high risk of stillbirth or neonatal morbidity so that interventions can be planned.. Fortnightly ultrasound scans for EFW and umbilical artery (UA) doppler are arranged until delivery around 37 weeks if the findings are normal. Fetal heart rate monitoring (Cardiotocography, CTG) and amniotic fluid measurement can be used to complement ultrasound surveillance.. If the UA doppler is abnormal, then twice weekly to daily UA doppler monitoring together with ductus venosus (DV) doppler or ...
The complexity of fibre distributions in tissues is an important microstructural feature, now measurable in vivo by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) through orientation dispersion (OD) indices. OD metrics have gained popularity for the characterisation of neurite morphology, but they still lack systematic validation. This paper demonstrates a framework for whole-sample histological quantification of OD in spinal cord specimens, potentially useful for validating MRI-derived OD estimates.Our methodological framework is based on (i) sagittal sectioning; (ii) Palmgrens silver staining; (iii) structure tensor (ST) analysis; (iv) directional statistics. Novel elements are the data-driven optimisation of the spatial scale of ST analysis, and a new multivariate, weighted directional statistical approach for anisotropy-informed quantification of OD.Palmgrens silver staining of sagittal spinal cord sections provides robust visualisation of neuronal elements, enabling OD quantification.

Habek D, Cerkez Habek J, Jagust M.Clinical Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Clinical Hospital Osijek, Osijek, Croatia.. AIM: The aim of this study was to assess the value of acupuncture (AP) in the conversion of fetal breech presentation into vertex presentation.. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A randomized prospective controlled clinical study included 67 pregnant women with fetal breech presentation: 34 women with singleton pregnancies treated with manual AP (urinary bladder 67, Zhiyin) and a control group which included 33 women with singleton pregnancies without AP treatment. The AP treatment lasted 30 min a day, and was conducted during and after 34 weeks of pregnancy with simultaneous cardiotocography. RESULTS: The success rate of the AP correction of fetal breech presentation is 76.4% (26 women), and spontaneous conversion without AP in vertex presentation is observed in 15 women (45.4%; p0.001).. CONCLUSIONS: We believe that AP correction of fetal malpresentation is a relatively simple, ...
A contraction refers specifically to the motion of the uterus[3] as part of the process of childbirth. Contractions, and labour in general, is one condition that releases the hormone oxytocin into the body. Contractions become longer as labour intensifies. Prior to actual labour, women may experience Braxton Hicks contractions, sometimes known as false labour. Since every pregnancy is different, a doctor, midwife or other competent professional should always be consulted before any action is taken to reduce the pain. Some popular methods may be harmful to the mother and/or the baby, or may actually worsen the pain or lengthen the labour. Uterine contractions during childbirth can be monitored by cardiotocography, in which a device is fixated to the skin of the mother or directly to the fetal scalp. The pressure required to flatten a section of the uterine wall correlates with the internal pressure, thereby providing an estimate of it.[4] A type of monitoring technology under development at ...

At the grand old age of 78 years [hmm, in 1999 Stan would have been 73, no? -- Ed.], most folks are enjoying their retirement, sitting back in a comfortable chair watching TV, maybe taking the occasional holiday cruise or trip to see the grandkids. Satirist Stan Freberg is not most folks. Currently at work on a new album, a book, two syndicated radio shows -- Stan Freberg Here and When Radio Was, both of which he took on in the early Nineties -- hes also featured as narrator in the new childrens film Stuart Little. To top it off, a 4-CD box set encompassing his long career, Tip of the Freberg: The Stan Freberg Collection 1951-1998, has just hit store racks. Its hard to believe Freberg couldve been any busier a half-century ago.

Continuous electronic fetal heart rate monitoring in labour is widely used but its potential for improving fetal and neonatal outcomes has not been realised. The most likely reason is the difficulty of interpreting the fetal heart rate trace correctly during labour. Computerised interpretation of the fetal heart rate and intelligent decision-support has the potential to deliver this improvement in care. This trial will test whether the addition of decision support software to aid the interpretation of the cardiotocogram (CTG) during labour will reduce the number of poor neonatal outcomes in those women judged to require continuous electronic fetal heart rate monitoring. An individually randomised controlled trial of 46,000 women who are judged to require continuous electronic fetal monitoring in labour. Eligibility criteria: Women admitted to a participating labour ward who are judged to require continuous electronic fetal monitoring, have a singleton or twin pregnancy, are ≥ 35 weeks gestation,

Its a sad fact that illnesses such as Leukaemia never get a great deal of press coverage unless it affects a well known public figure. Last week Aston Villa player Stan Petrov was diagnosed with Acute Leukaemia and simply Googling either his name or the word Leukaemia will return hundreds of web pages of info relating to his battle against his newly diagnosed illness. But why does it only seem to be that when stars such as Stan are affected that the media sit up and take notice? What about the thousands of other normal people, many of them children, who are, and have been fighting their own battles for many years,....why dont the press appear to hold their lives in such high esteem.... are they less valuable than Stan? Less news worthy?. This post is not against Stan, far from it, i wish him the very best of luck in his battle.

Leczenie choroby oparzeniowej wymaga wielospecjalistycznego podejścia do chorego, ktorego stan ogolny nierzadko jest uznawany za ciężki i zagrażający życiu. Szybkie rozpoczęcie terapii prowadzonej zgodnie z najnowszymi zaleceniami pozwala znacznie zwiększyć szanse na korzystny końcowy efekt. Odpowiednio dobrana droga żywienia oraz określenie zapotrzebowania energetycznego są niezaprzeczalnie istotnymi czynnikami mającymi wpływ na leczenie chorych oparzonych, począwszy od wczesnej fazy resuscytacji, a skończywszy na poszpitalnej rehabilitacji. Zmiany metaboliczne, ktore obserwuje się u tych pacjentow, mogą utrzymywać się nawet do 24 miesięcy po urazie. W związku z tym, w procesie leczenia nie może zabraknąć odpowiedniego podejścia dietetycznego, ktore zapewnia optymalną podaż kalorii oraz składnikow odżywczych.

Dr. Lamaze was influenced by childbirth practices in the Soviet Union, which involved breathing and relaxation techniques under the supervision of a "monitrice", or midwife. The Lamaze method gained popularity in the United States after Marjorie Karmel wrote about her experiences in her 1959 book Thank You, Dr. Lamaze, and with the formation of the American Society for Psycho prophylaxis in Obstetrics (ASPO Lamaze). Currently Lamaze International, founded by Karmel and Elisabeth Bing,[2] is the premier childbirth education certifying organization in the world.. Modern Lamaze childbirth classes teach expectant mothers many ways to work with the labor process to reduce the pain associated with childbirth and promote normal (physiological) birth including the first moments after birth. Techniques include allowing labour to begin on its own, movement and positions, massage, aromatherapy, hot and cold packs, breathing techniques, the use of a "birth ball" (yoga or exercise ball), spontaneous pushing, ...
OB-GYN candidates must first complete medical school and obtain a MBBS or equivalent certification.[2] This portion typically takes five years. Following this, they are eligible for provisional registration with the General Medical Council. Then they must complete a two years of foundation training.[2][3] After the first year of training is complete, trainees are eligible for full registration with the General Medical Council.[2] After the foundation training is complete applicants take the Part 1 MRCOG examination[4] administered by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. There are an additional five years of training after this, and two more exams (Part 2 and Part 3 MRCOG exams) which adds up to seven years total minimum in training, although some trainees may take longer.[5] ...
Once the catheter is in and all preparations are complete elsewhere in the lab, the EP study begins. The two large magnets are brought in on either side of the patient. They are large and looming and will sandwich the patient, but are able to precisely control the position of the electrodes that are on the end of the catheters. The X-ray machine will give the doctor a view of the heart and the position of the electrodes, and the magnets will allow the doctor to guide the electrodes through the heart. The magnets are controlled with either a joystick or game controller. The electrophysiologist begins by moving the electrodes along the conduction pathways and along the inner walls of the heart, measuring the electrical activity along the way. The next step is pacing the heart, this means he/she will speed up or slow down the heart by placing the electrode at certain points along the conductive pathways of the heart and control the depolarization rate of the heart. The doctor will pace each chamber ...
One of the first mentions of the possibility of heart transplantation was by American medical researcher Simon Flexner, who declared in a reading of his paper on "Tendencies in Pathology" in the University of Chicago in 1907 that it would be possible in the then-future for diseased human organs substitution for healthy ones by surgery - including arteries, stomach, kidneys and heart.[4] Not having a human donor heart available, James D. Hardy of the University of Mississippi Medical Center transplanted the heart of a chimpanzee into the chest of a dying Boyd Rush in the early morning of Jan. 24, 1964. Hardy used a defibrillator to shock the heart to restart beating. This heart did beat in Rush's chest for 60 to 90 minutes (sources differ), and then Rush died without regaining consciousness.[5][6][7] Although Hardy was a respected surgeon who had performed the world's first human-to-human lung transplant a year earlier,[8][9] author Donald McRae states that Hardy could feel the "icy disdain" from ...
Nutrition during pregnancy is important to ensure healthy growth of the fetus.[75] Nutrition during pregnancy is different from the non-pregnant state.[75] There are increased energy requirements and specific micronutrient requirements.[75] Women benefit from education to encourage a balanced energy and protein intake during pregnancy.[76] Some women may need professional medical advice if their diet is affected by medical conditions, food allergies, or specific religious/ ethical beliefs.[77]. Adequate periconceptional (time before and right after conception) folic acid (also called folate or Vitamin B9) intake has been shown to decrease the risk of fetal neural tube defects, such as spina bifida.[78] The neural tube develops during the first 28 days of pregnancy, a urine pregnancy test is not usually positive until 14 days post-conception, explaining the necessity to guarantee adequate folate intake before conception.[63][79] Folate is abundant in green leafy vegetables, legumes, and ...
Theoretically, pelvimetry may identify cephalo-pelvic disproportion, which is when the capacity of the pelvis is inadequate to allow the fetus to negotiate the birth canal. However, a woman's pelvis loosens up before birth (with the help of hormones). A Cochrane review in 2017 found that there was too little evidence to show whether pelvimetry is beneficial and safe when the baby is in cephalic presentation.[3] A review in 2003 came to the conclusion that pelvimetry does not change the management of pregnant women, and recommended that all women should be allowed a trial of labor regardless of pelvimetry results.[2] It considered routine performance of pelvimetry to be a waste of time, a potential liability, and an unnecessary discomfort.[2] ...
Prevention includes comprehensive sexual education, availability of family planning services, abstinence and increased access to a range of effective birth control methods. Most unintended pregnancies result from not using contraception, and many result from using contraceptives inconsistently or incorrectly. Though, increased rates of sexual activity are also a factor.[41]. Increasing use of long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) (such as IUD and contraceptive implants) decreases the chance of unintended pregnancy by decreasing the chance of incorrect use. Method failure is relatively rare with modern, highly effective contraceptives, and is much more of an issue when such methods are unavailable or not used. (See comparison of contraceptive methods). Introduction of effective LARCs for men could have a positive effect on unintended pregnancies.[42]. In the United States, women who have an unintended pregnancy are more likely to have subsequent unplanned pregnancies.[16] Providing family ...
In 1923 Dr. Elliott Cutler of the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital performed the world's first successful heart valve surgery - a mitral valve repair. The patient was a 12-year-old girl with rheumatic mitral stenosis.. The development of the heart-lung machine in the 1950s paved the way for replacement of the mitral valve with an artificial valve in the 1960s. For decades after, mitral valve replacement was the only surgical option for patients with a severely diseased mitral valve. However, there are some significant downsides to a prosthetic mitral valve. Infection of the valve can occur, which is dangerous and difficult to treat. Patients with mechanical heart valves are required to take blood thinners for the rest of their lives, which presents a risk of bleeding complications. The artificial mitral valve has an elevated risk of stroke. Patients with mechanical heart valves who use warfarin for anticoagulation have to be on long-term anticoagulation therapy. This means they must go to the clinic ...
After further testing, Odón was introduced to the chief of obstetrics at a hospital in Buenos Aires who saw the benefit of the method and arranged to have the device tested more thoroughly at an Iowa laboratory that has simulators designed to model delivery methods more realistically. Safety testing had been performed on 20 women in Argentina, all of whom had previously given birth and were experiencing uncomplicated pregnancies, including a woman who was able to deliver a baby weighing 9 pounds (4.1 kg) with only two pushes. Further testing will be conducted on more than 250 women in China, India and South Africa, with a mix of pregnant women experiencing normal and complicated labor.[1]. Becton Dickinson has agreed to manufacture and distribute the unit, and estimates that the Odón Device could be constructed for $50 per unit, and it is expected that it could be used by midwives as well as obstetricians who would need minimal training to use the device effectively.[1] The World Health ...
