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
As early as the mid-19th century, Kilian suggested that abnormalities of fetal heart rate (FHR
), specifically tachycardia and bradycardia, indicated forceps delivery as soon as possible.
