• utero
  • Males are more vulnerable to side effects of maternal stress in utero, and thus are more likely to suffer fetal death due to pollution exposure. (nber.org)
  • We then explore the use of observed differences in neonatal and one-year mortality rates across genders in response to pollution exposure as a metric to estimate total fetal losses in utero. (nber.org)
  • spontaneous abortion
  • In an accompanying Commentary (p 1526), Kenneth Lyons Jones from the University of California San Diego, USA, concludes: "Because of the substantial barriers associated with the study of spontaneous abortion or fetal death, it is hard to imagine a feasible prospective study design that would be superior to that by Andersen and colleagues in addressing the risk associated with maternal fever.

  • Obstetrics
  • Dr. Gary Goldman's study on the 4,250% spike in fetal death reports during the 2009/10 H1N1 "pandemic" originally rejected by the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology (AJOG), who is charged by the National Coalition of Organized Women (NCOW) as complicit in a massive cover-up and manipulation of data associated with the 2009/10 flu season fetal deaths is now available free to the public.

  • Fertility
  • Fertility rates decreased by 12% among Flint women, and fetal death rates increased by 58%, after April 2014, according to research by assistant professors and health economists David Slusky at the University of Kansas and Daniel Grossman at West Virginia University . (dailypress.com)
  • Researchers from the University of Kansas and West Virginia University say lead-contaminated water in Flint may be linked to lower fertility rates and higher fetal death rates in the city. (michiganradio.org)
  • And you know we think fully understanding the decrease in fertility rates and increases in fetal deaths helps us better understand some of the non-monetary costs of this water switch," Grossman said. (michiganradio.org)
  • This story has been corrected to reflect that the researchers' findings show a correlation between the Flint water switch and higher fetal deaths/lower fertility, but that correlation does not necessarily mean that the water caused those problems. (michiganradio.org)
  • fetus
  • Loss of fluid may be associated with the fetus becoming easier to feel through the belly (due to the loss of the surrounding fluid), decreased uterine size, or meconium (fetal stool) seen in the fluid. (wikipedia.org)
  • Premature
  • Premature rupture of membranes (PROM): when the fetal membranes rupture early, at least one hour before labor has started. (wikipedia.org)
  • In premature rupture of membranes, these processes are activated too early: Cell death: when cells undergo programmed cell death, they release chemical markers that are detected in higher concentrations in cases of PPROM. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • In subgroup analysis stratified by geographic location, assessment of weight and height, number of deaths, and adjustment for confounding factors, there was little evidence of heterogeneity between subgroups and, in general, the quality of the studies was found to be high and there was little evidence that the results varied by study quality. (medpagetoday.com)
  • However, the authors pointed out that for fetal death, a stronger association was found among European studies than in the one study from Latin America ( P =0.03 for heterogeneity). (medpagetoday.com)
  • In the Kansas study, Flint's birth and fetal death data was compared to similar data from 15 other large Michigan cities, including Detroit. (dailypress.com)
  • One recent study indicates that labor induction at term or post-term reduces the rate of caesarean section by 12%, and also reduces fetal death. (wikipedia.org)
  • Women
  • But there were some anecdotal reports about fetal death in women who were vaccinated. (theincidentaleconomist.com)
  • There is a need to more meaningfully understand how life, death, and personhood issues are handled during this difficult event for women, their families, and the health care staff. (wayne.edu)
  • data
  • The fetal deaths data is more limited, as state statistics are only kept for fetuses that die after 20 weeks and in a hospital, Slusky said. (dailypress.com)
  • time
  • Most estimates place the precise time of fetal death at about 4-7 days before overlapping and separation of the fetal skull bones appear. (wikipedia.org)
  • This stressful situation results in disease, death and population decline, leading to a pattern of cyclic variation in population size over time. (wikipedia.org)
  • available
  • Therefore we used the closest available model of fetal myocardium at term: a primary culture of neonatal rat cardiomyocytes in which cells beat synchronously and develop pacemaker activity. (clinsci.org)
  • fever
  • The fever accounts for up to one-third of deaths in hospitals within the affected regions and 10 to 16% of total cases. (wikipedia.org)
  • Hospital
  • Information was collected from birth and death certificates, hospital records and home interviews. (www.gov.uk)
  • Thus birth and death related rituals need to be investigated within the social and cultural context of American hospital settings to better understand the social organization of life, death, and personhood. (wayne.edu)
  • The findings contribute to a better understanding of how the categories of life, death, and personhood are culturally made in the labor and delivery unit of an American hospital setting. (wayne.edu)
  • human
  • It was not possible to investigate the effects of bile acids on the intact human fetal heart at a cellular level. (clinsci.org)
  • researchers
  • The researchers compared the birth and death certificates in Flint to more than a dozen other comparable Michigan cities, like Detroit, before and after the city's water switch in April 2014. (michiganradio.org)
  • studies
  • Life transitions such as birth and death constitute a significant area within anthropological studies of ritual. (wayne.edu)
