OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to verify by means of Doppler ultrasonography and simultaneous fetal pulse oximetry the redistribution of fetal blood flow in favor of the brain during intrapartum hypoxemia. STUDY DESIGN During labor 11 term fetuses with abnormal heart rate patterns and arterial oxygen saturation <30% and 14 control term fetuses with normal oxygen saturation were simultaneously monitored by pulse oximetry and Doppler ultrasonography. The results were compared with the… CONTINUE READING
