OBJECTIVE To examine the effectiveness of pH analysis of fetal scalp blood compared with lactate analysis in identifying hypoxia in labour to prevent acidaemia at birth. DESIGN Randomised controlled multicentre trial. SETTING Labour wards. PARTICIPANTS Women with a singleton pregnancy, cephalic presentation, gestational age >or=34 weeks, and clinical(More)
1 Preface A vast majority of Sida's most important partner countries are in a situation of violent conflict or post conflict. During 2002 the agency supported more than 150 projects and programmes, which had the purpose of contributing to the resolution of violent conflicts and/or the consolidation of peace. Statistics tell us that around 50% of armed(More)
We studied 17 patients, with unilateral lesions in lung or thoracic wall, during thoracotomy performed in the full lateral position. Balanced anaesthesia was used with pethidine and 50% nitrous oxide, in oxygen. The procedure included a period of one-lung ventilation (OLV). Haemodynamic and gas exchange measurements were performed before and after(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiotocography (CTG) has high sensitivity, but less specificity in detection of fetal hypoxia. There is need for adjunctive methods easy to apply during labor. Low fetal heart rate short term variation (STV) is predictive for hypoxia during the antenatal period. The objectives of our study were to methodologically evaluate monitoring of STV(More)
