OBJECTIVE To characterize tracheal fluid flow during fetal breathing movements by Doppler ultrasound. STUDY DESIGN To use pulsed Doppler to measure flow velocity during inspiration and expiration in a cross-sectional study of 15 normal fetuses and determine the correlation, if any, between flow velocity and gestational age. RESULTS Cyclic respiratory… CONTINUE READING
