Fetal monitoring during pregnancy is important to support medical decision making. The fetal electrocardiogram (fECG) is a valuable signal to diagnose fetal well-being. Non-invasive recording of the fECG is performed by positioning electrodes on the maternal abdomen. The signal-to-noise ratio of these recordings is relatively low and the main undesired(More)
Monitoring the uterine contractions provides important prognostic information during pregnancy and delivery. In particular, the propagation of uterine activity is closely related to the contraction efficiency. In the present study, a propagation analysis of uterine contraction is carried out by simultaneously recording the electrohysterogram (EHG) and the(More)
BACKGROUND Traditional methods used for prediction of preterm delivery are subjective and inaccurate. The Electrohysterogram (EHG) and in particular the estimation of the EHG conduction velocity, is a relatively new promising method for detecting imminent preterm delivery. To date the analysis of the conduction velocity has relied on visual inspection of(More)
Minimal invasive techniques are rapidly becoming standard surgical techniques for many surgical procedures. To develop the skills necessary to apply these techniques, box trainers and/or inanimate models may be used, but these trainers lack the possibility of inherent objective classification of results. In the past decade, virtual reality (VR) trainers(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the relation between maternal thyroid function and the outcome of external cephalic version (ECV) in breech presentation. METHODS Prospective cohort study in 141 women (≥ 35 weeks gestation) with a singleton fetus in breech. Blood samples for assessing thyroid function were taken prior to ECV. Main outcome measure was the(More)
High burnout levels have been observed in medical residents. The purpose of this study is to assess the burnout rates and potential determinants of burnout in a sample of medical residents. In total, 58 medical residents working in a Dutch teaching hospital, received questionnaires at home, including the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI). In addition, they(More)
Spectral analysis of fetal heart rate variability might offer additional information that can be used for assessing the fetal condition more reliably. Clinical recordings of fetal heart rate are usually contaminated by artifacts. These artifacts can be detected and corrected or removed, but this can affect the spectral estimates obtained from the heart rate(More)
BACKGROUND Intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) is a major risk factor for perinatal mortality and morbidity. Thus, there is a compelling need to introduce sensitive measures to detect IUGR fetuses. Routine third trimester ultrasonography is increasingly used to detect IUGR. However, we lack evidence for its clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness(More)
BACKGROUND Perinatal mortality and morbidity in the Netherlands is relatively high compared to other European countries. Our country has a unique system with an independent primary care providing care to low-risk pregnancies and a secondary/tertiary care responsible for high-risk pregnancies. About 65% of pregnant women in the Netherlands will be referred(More)
