Foetal doppler study

Foetal doppler study

(Science: radiology) Non-stress test (NST), external monitoring for 20 minutes; poor specificity, greater than4 foetal heart accelerations (greater than15 bpm over baseline for 15 seconds) following foetal movement in foetus greater than34 weeks, no heart accelerations in immaturity, sleep, maternal sedation contraction stress test (CST), external monitoring after oxytocin or maternal breast stimulation, greater than 3 uterine contraction in 10 minutes; 50% specificity uterine and umbilical artery waveform, elevated systolic:diastolic ratio = increased vascular resistance foetal aortic flow volume, 185-246 ml/kg/min see also: biophysical profile, intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR)
