Our aim was to compare the effects of short (4 h) and prolonged (24 h) periods of reduced uterine blood flow (RUBF) on fetal and placental uptake of O2, glucose, and lactate. In pregnant sheep, uterine and umbilical blood flows were measured under normal conditions and after 4 and 24 h of RUBF. A 50% reduction in uterine blood flow caused a 56% reduction in fetal arterial O2 saturation (SaO2). Umbilical blood flow increased from 325 +/- 33 to 378 +/- 32 ml.min-1.kg-1 (P < 0.05) after 4 h but… CONTINUE READING
