Fetal scalp blood lactate as an indicator of intrapartum hypoxia.

Abstract

Fetal scalp blood lactate was measured during labour by a simple, rapid method and its value as an indicator of fetal intrauterine hypoxia was assessed and compared with that of pH measurement. The normal ranges of lactate concentration and of pH values were calculated. Significantly higher concentrations of lactate and lower pH values were found in samples… (More)
