Interest Rate

The percentage of the value of a balance or debt that one pays or is paid each time period. For example, if one holds a bond with a face value of $1,000 and a 3% interest rate payable each quarter, one receives $30 each quarter. The percentage of the interest rate remains constant (usually), but the amount one pays or is paid changes according to the amount of the balance or debt. For example, if one pays off part of the principal on a loan each month, the amount one pays in interest decreases even though the rate remains the same. See also: Time Value of Money.

A meta-analysis reviewed and reprinted this year in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews concluded that the use of amnioinfusion for "potential or suspected umbilical cord compression" may reduce the occurrence of variable FHR decelerations, improve short-term measures of neonatal outcome, reduce maternal postpartum endometritis, and lower the rate of cesarean delivery (Cochrane Database Syst.
Finally (and perhaps most importantly) looking at features of the FHR in isolation does not give information on how the fetus is reacting to the labor.
* Appliance Setting - As evidenced by the range of certified FHR and EF ratings for each setting in Table 2, the appliance setting dictating the utilization of heat pump and/or electric resistance heat is an important parameter.
Studies from Queen's University have compared the effectiveness of using FHR monitoring, blood gasses and acid-base evaluation to detect early hypoxia in vaginal deliveries, with acceptable results (17).
This would negate any value of augmented placental perfusion, such that maximisation of CO would not replace FHR monitoring, but rather constitute an 'early warning system' to objectively identify maternal favourable positions for placental perfusion, other things (such as the umbilical cord) being equal.
(10) Furthermore, electromagnetic waves emitted by mobile phones may affect the FHR patterns by means of changing nerve conduction and cardiac contractility.
mAb 131X, which binds to FH but not to FHRs or FHL-1 (22), was coupled to CNBr-activated Sepharose [1 mg mAb/mL of wet Sepharose (Pharmacia)] according to the manufacturer's protocol.

study, which found that using the device in conjunction with electronic fetal heart rate monitoring reduced the cesarean section rate for a nonreassuring FHR by 50%.
As early as the mid-19th century, Kilian[1] suggested that abnormalities of fetal heart rate (FHR), specifically tachycardia and bradycardia, indicated forceps delivery as soon as possible.
