OBJECTIVE To assess the value of Doppler indices, calculated from fetal arterial peripheral vessels, cardiac outflow tracts and venous vessels, in the identification of acidaemia, hypercapnia and hypoxaemia as determined by pH and gas analysis of fetal blood obtained by cordocentesis in growth retarded fetuses. DESIGN Doppler measurements were taken from umbilical artery, thoracic descending aorta, renal artery, middle cerebral artery, cardiac outflow tracts, inferior vena cava and ductus… CONTINUE READING
