Here, we utilised Biophysical profile
as antenatal assessment in high risk pregnancies to identify the compromised foetuses.
The nurse miscommunicated the score of the second biophysical profile
Reverse diastolic blood flow is always an indication for delivery, as is severe FGR, repetitive late or variable fetal heart rate decelerations, and a persistent biophysical profile
score of 4 or less (with evaluations 6 hours apart).
If fetal maturity is an issue, a biophysical profile
may help resolve the issue of how urgently to pursue delivery.
Each parameter evaluated in the biophysical profile
results from efferent signals originating in different central nervous system centres, which mature at different gestational ages.
Her biophysical profile
scores were all 8/10 or higher, the only deficit being low amniotic fluid volume.
Ultrasound showed single live intrauterine pregnancy of 29 weeks 3 days with breech presentation with oligohydramnios, placenta was at fundal region, Biophysical profile
was 6/8, FHR 124 bpm.
Belfort prefers to do twice weekly nonstress testing with amniotic fluid index, the so-called modified biophysical profile
10, 11] In the majority of the severely growth retarded fetuses, sequential deterioration of arterial and venous Doppler precedes biophysical profile
The biophysical profile
has been used to identify fetuses at risk of FIRS in the presence of pPROM.
of Washington uses the mnemonic, "Normal Baby Moves Through Fluid" to help medical students to remember the five components of the biophysical profile
INCLUSION CRITERIA: A Singleton, live non-anomalous term fetus on ultrasonography, modified biophysical profile
>6 and delivery occurring within 48 hours of last antenatal surveillance test, that is modified biophysical profile
For fetuses with CCHB, Biophysical profile
(BPP) score alone is not a good indicator of fetal wellbeing.
5] Modified biophysical profile
is an excellent means of fetal surveillance and identifies a group of patients at increased risk for adverse perinatal outcome and small for gestational age.
The use of biophysical parameters to develop a biophysical profile
score is good for monitoring a growth-restricted fetus because the cutoffs used in scoring account for the normal physiologic variations of gestation.
