The evidence is fairly strong that recurrent variable decelerations
result from umbilical cord compression.
In contrast, this study examined the differences between computer simulations using LifeMOD and a single physical test using an ATD, in which the initial conditions and impact decelerations
were known and contact properties were determined specifically for this single trial.
Given the almost equal probabilities of growth accelerations and decelerations
, most of the benefits of growth accelerations in the continent were offset by growth collapses.
9 billion in 1994, mainly as a result of a continuing deceleration
of social insurance fund receipts.
More noteworthy was the deceleration
in the index for all items less food and energy.
of M2 growth did not begin until the second quarter of 1990, when growth slowed to a 2 1/4 percent annual rate from the 6 to 7 percent range seen in the previous three quarters.
First, variable decelerations
must be totally absent for an FHR tracing to be categorized as category I, in other words, normal.
This large increase, if realized, would contrast with the decelerations
in the previous 3 years.
The frequency of variable decelerations
is critical as lactic acid generated during the variable deceleration
may be cleared across the placenta during the periods between decelerations
That loss of variability, when combined with recurrent heart rate decelerations
, flags a baby who may be getting asphyxiated, said Mr.
But the new terminology does balance this change; the new guidelines have also done away with tiny variable decelerations
LAS VEGAS -- When assessing variable decelerations
in the second stage of labor, measure their depth and duration but also determine how those decelerations
are affecting the baseline variability and baseline rate, Suzanne McMurtry Baird, a registered nurse clinician, advised at a conference on fetal monitoring sponsored by Symposia Medicus.
NEW YORK -- Relief of repetitive variable decelerations
and improvement of diagnosis of congenital anomalies in midterm fetuses with oligohydramnios are the two best-supported therapeutic indications for amnioinfusion, Dr.
are quite ominous, while others are less so," said Dr.
Neuraxial analgesia (spinal or epidural anesthesia) is associated with an increased risk of late decelerations
, although it's not dear if this is clinically significant, added Dr.
