  • pregnancies
  • Determining whether there are any threshold effects between maternal BMI and fetal and infant death could be important with regard to public health recommendations for women who plan pregnancies. (medpagetoday.com)
  • The city of Flint saw fewer pregnancies, and a higher number of fetal deaths, during the period women and their fetuses were exposed to high levels of lead in their drinking water, according to a new research study that reviewed health records from Flint and the state. (dailypress.com)
  • Fetal death is an obstetrical syndrome that annually affects 2.4 to 3 million pregnancies worldwide, including more than 20,000 in the United States each year. (ovid.com)
  • 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)
  • Flint
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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. (innovations-report.com)
  • Fertility
  • 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)
  • infant death
  • In an effort to better understand the association between maternal BMI and risk of fetal and infant death, the researchers conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies identified through PubMed and Embase databases. (medpagetoday.com)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • cases
  • Cases were 164 antepartum fetal deaths and controls were drawn from a random sample of 313 births surviving at least 28 days. (www.gov.uk)
  • There are about 300,000 to 500,000 cases which result in 5,000 deaths a year. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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)
  • In the United States non-fire related cases results in more than 400 deaths a year. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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)
  • weeks
  • We sought to determine if maternal plasma concentrations of angiogenic and antiangiogenic factors measured at 24-28 weeks of gestation can predict subsequent fetal death. (ovid.com)
  • There were 11 fetal deaths and 829 controls with samples available for analysis between 24-28 weeks of gestation. (ovid.com)
  • outcomes
  • The placentas of all fetal deaths were histologically examined by pathologists who used a standardized protocol and were blinded to patient outcomes. (ovid.com)
  • human
  • It was not possible to investigate the effects of bile acids on the intact human fetal heart at a cellular level. (clinsci.org)
  • birth
  • Information was collected from birth and death certificates, hospital records and home interviews. (www.gov.uk)
  • Life transitions such as birth and death constitute a significant area within anthropological studies of ritual. (wayne.edu)
  • Birth and death can be considered as rites of passage that mark key life transitions (van Gennep 1909/1960). (wayne.edu)
  • 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)
  • association
  • 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)
  • A possible detrimental paternal age effect on offspring health due to mutations of paternal origin should be reflected in an association between paternal age and fetal loss. (semanticscholar.org)
  • loss
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Hospital
  • 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)
  • studies
  • 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)
  • Health
  • Fetal health is an important consideration in the formation of health-based policy. (nber.org)
  • A possible detrimental paternal age effect on offspring health due to mutations of paternal origin should be reflected in an association between paternal age and fetal loss. (semanticscholar.org)
  • 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)
