Intrapartum amniotic fluid index and neonatal acidosis. A pilot study to determine the correlation.

Abstract

The purpose of a prospective study was to determine if there was a significant association between an intrapartum amniotic fluid index (AFI) < or = 5.0 cm and neonatal acidosis (umbilical arterial pH < 7.20 or metabolic acidosis [umbilical arterial pH < 7.20 and base deficit > 10 mEq/L]). In early labor 101 gravidas at > or = 37 gestational weeks underwent… (More)
