Dynamics of cardiovascular responses to repeated partial umbilical cord compression in late-gestation sheep fetus.


We characterized the detailed hemodynamics of fetal blood pressure, heart rate, common umbilical blood flow, and femoral blood flow responses to partial compression of the umbilical cord and tested the hypothesis that repeated cord compression modulates fetal cardiovascular responses in 10 chronically instrumented fetal sheep at ∼130 days of gestation.
