ABSTRACT: A model of impaired oxygen delivery, using an acute surgical preparation in the fetal dog, is described. [...] Key Result The following pathophysiologic sequence of events was observed: 1) a latency period with no changes; 2) a drop in pO2 which stabilized later at a lower pressure; 3) late fetal heart rate deceleration, the pattern of which was not related to the progressively deteriorating fetal condition; 4) a progressive increase in pCO2; 5) a progressive decrease in pH. Abnormal tissue values…Expand
Velocimetric and biochemical fetal effects of placental embolisation using microspheres in ewes.
TLDR
The experimental model is able to reproduce acute and chronic fetal distress and a correlation between velocimetric observations and acid-base balance data is obtained. Expand
and biochemical fetal effects of placental using microspheres in ewes
TLDR
The experimental model is able to reproduce acute and chronic fetal distress and the subsequent aim is to obtain a correlation between velocimetric observations and acid-base balance data. Expand
Comparison of Fluid Types for Resuscitation in Acute Hemorrhagic Shock and Evaluation of Gastric Luminal and Transcutaneous Pco2 in Leghorn Chickens
TLDR
The results showed no difference in mortality in leghorn chickens treated with fluid resuscitation after hemorrhagic shock and that the PCV and hemoglobin concentrations increased by 3 days after acute hemorrhage with or without treatment. Expand
Doppler ultrasonographic assessment of maternal and fetal blood flow in abnormal canine pregnancy.
TLDR
It is concluded that in dogs, uterine artery, umbilical artery and fetal renal artery RI differ between normal and abnormal gestation being useful for the prediction of adverse obstetric outcome. Expand
Evaluation of feline uterine and umbilical arteries blood flow in a pharmacologically induced abnormal gestation model.
TLDR
It is concluded that blood flow of the uterine and umbilical arteries differed between these normal and abnormal gestations predicting an adverse obstetric outcome. Expand
Perinatal and late neonatal mortality in the dog
TLDR
Birth weight and inter-pup whelping intervals were the most consistent variables that increased the odds of a pup dying, while neonatal atelectasis, pulmonary congestion, inhalation of amniotic fluid and meconium, leptomeningeal and generalised systemic congestion were the principal pathological findings in these pups.

TLDR
The results suggest that the persistent expression of VEGF by stromal cells in the hydropic villi of NIHF seems to be a reaction to poor villous vascular development and to participate in the regulatory mechanisms of vascular function including angiogenesis and permeability. Expand

Transabdominal Ultrasonography as a Monitoring Tool for Pregnancy in Alpine Marmots (Marmota marmota)
TLDR
An ultrasonographic follow-up of pregnancies in captive alpine marmots illustrates the characteristic findings of different gestational phases and provides a noninvasive, alternative tool to the classical verification of pregnancy in marmot by progesterone measurement from serum samples. Expand
Medical management of canine and feline dystocia.
TLDR
This paper focuses on the decision making necessary prior to instituting medical management for cases of dystocia in both bitches and queens, and describes available therapeutics. Expand

TLDR
In this acute experimental situation, tpH seemed to be a very sensitive indicator of fetal anoxia, and the combined continuous monitoring of FHR and tPH for the diagnosis of fetal distress deserves further investigation. Expand
Predictability of the state of fetal oxygenation from a quantitative analysis of the components of late deceleration.
TLDR
Investigation in near-term rhesus monkeys found that the latency period, rate of development, and the magnitude of the late decelerations were all three good predictors of the fetal oxygenation (the P o 2 and per cent saturation of hemoglobin with oxygen of the Fetal arterial blood). Expand
Effects of reduced uterine blood flow on accelerations and decelerations in heart rate of fetal sheep.
TLDR
There was a significant increase in both the number and amplitude of decelerations during the period of reduced uterine blood flow, but there was no change in the number, amplitude, or duration of accelerations. Expand
Fetal oxygen consumption and mechanisms of heart rate response during artificially produced late decelerations of fetal heart rate in sheep.
TLDR
It is concluded that late decelerations of fetal heart rate in normoxic sheep are vagally mediated and due to chemoreceptor rather than baroreceptor activity. Expand
Fetal oxygen uptake, oxygenation, and acid-base balance as a function of uterine blood flow.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that under normal physiological conditions the O2 supply to the fetal lamb is approximately twice the value necessary to maintain an adequate fetal O2 uptake and a normal fetal base excess. Expand
Tissue surface pH monitoring during reduced blood flow: Metabolic implications and sources of error
TLDR
Tissue surface pH is linearly correlated with the blood concentration of lactic acid or the base deficit during periods of acute blood flow reduction, and may be helpful for following the severity of the resulting anaerobic metabolism in neonates at risk for reduced peripheral perfusion or hypoxia. Expand
The relationship of heart rate patterns and tissue pH in the human fetus.
TLDR
Tissue pH changes correlated with the FHR patterns in a manner consistent with current concepts of fetal stress, and trend monitoring of fetal tissue pH in labor may prove useful in the management of high-risk patients in labor. Expand

TLDR
In 39 pregnant and six nonpregnant dogs the abdominal aorta was exposed extraperitoneally through a left paralumbar incision, and a vascular occluder and a flow transducer were placed around it, and the picture of a moderately severe toxemia appeared in 10 dogs and that of a mild toxemia was seen in 11 others.

Current status of continuous fetal pH monitoring.
TLDR
When drawbacks in fetal scalp blood analysis were recognized, a miniature glass pH electrode capable of continuously monitoring neonatal tissue pH was introduced and modified and its present status as a valuable monitoring tool is evaluated. Expand

TLDR
The purpose of this paper is the reestablishment of simple, clear classification or “grading” of newborn infants which can be used as a basis for discussion and comparison of the results of obstetric practices, types of maternal pain relief and the effects of resuscitation. Expand
