Surveillance of the fetus is practised by obstetricians and midwives on a daily basis to prevent stillbirth and neonatal death. Yet, there is no specific book to cover this area of practice. Antenatal and Intrapartum Fetal Surveillance fills this gap – it covers the knowledge. A comprehensive reference text, the book discusses the use of biochemical and ultrasound markers for screening of genetic, chromosomal and anatomical malformations. It also covers fetal movements, heart rate monitoring, Doppler blood flows, fetal blood sampling, fetal oxygen saturation and fetal ECG waveform analysis to diagnose hypoxia. Recent developments as well as advanced technologies for the future are also dealt with.
