Fetal electrocardiogram helps in early detection of neonatal acidosis
Date:6/16/2011

This release is available in French and Spanish.

University of Granada researchers have proved that fetal electrocardiogram (ECG) is the best method for detecting early acidosis and the risk of loss of fetal wellbeing. This method allows to have healthy fetuses, since it shows the effects of lack of oxygen in the heart and brain of the fetus. A study conducted at the University of Granada has proved that this system is better than pulse oximetry, which measures oxygen saturation in fetuses and allows to estimate risks to the fetus.

This study was carried out by Mercedes Valverde Pareja, a researcher at the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics at the University of Granada, and conducted by professors Alberto Puertas Prieto, Alberto Salamanca Ballesteros and Francisco Montoya Ventoso. To carry out this study, its authors conducted a prospective randomized study with 180 women in labour admitted to the dilation area of the University Hospital Virgen de las Nieves, Granada, Spain.

Researchers found that women in labour monitored with fetal ECG and with recorded CTG compatible with risk of loss of fetal wellbeing, recorded a lower cesarean rate (30% vs. 46.7%), obtained better fetal Apgar test results and better values in fetal umbilical cord gas analysis at birth than those recorded with pulse oximetry. They also observed greater real-time monitoring, adequate signal, fetal ECG providing more continuous information, thus helping the obstetrician to control the state of the fetus.

Advantages of the method

This study proved that fetal electrocardiogram is very useful to detect fetuses at risk of suffering acidosis. Once the risk is detect
