TAPE# 595-30
GRAPHIC=PRE-NATAL CARE


While it's fairly easy for a doctor to tell how a mother is handling the stress of labor, it is not so easy to tell how the baby is doing.
Doctors use a test called electronic fetal monitoring to check on the infant through labor and delivery.
It's been used for years, but now researchers are now saying it may not be as helpful as once thought.
Dr. Emily Senay takes a look at the test and the controversy.

Signals from the baby are picked up from a transducer placed on the woman's abdomen and transmitted to a computer. Doctors then must interpret these signals.
Labor is a stressful time for mothers and babies.
Doctors use fetal monitoring to tell the babies heart rate--a heart rate that is too fast or too slow can mean an infant in distress.
Dr. Boris Petrikovsky is an obstetrician specializing in high risk deliveries.
(/////SOT/////)
SOT
IN Q=We try

((DR. BORIS PETRIKOVSKY, OBSTETRICIAN, NORTH SHORE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL
SOT:WE TRY TO ASSESS HOW A BABY REACTS TO THE STRESS OF CONTRACTIONS

RUNS=:00
OUT Q=babies heart


Decreased blood flow--reflected in a change in fetal heart rate--can lead to brain damage, organ damage, and even the death of an infant.
If a doctor feels an infant is in distress he or she may opt for a caesarean section...and that's exactly the problem according to authors of a recent study in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology. They found that
routine use of fetal monitoring leads to more c-sections--- and does "not"

decrease fetal or maternal deaths.
The only benefit found: a reduction of neonatal seizures.
Dr. Petrikovsky says interpretation of fetal monitoring results is part of the problem.
(/////SOT/////)
SOT
IN Q=Occasionally

((OCCASSIONALLY BABY CAN DEMONSTRATE A PARTICULAR SIGN ON THE TRACING THAT MAY APPEAR AS IF THE BABY IS IN TROUBLE THEREFORE MIN INTERPRETING OF THE FETAL HEART, NOW AT THIS PARTICULAR POINT CAN LEAD TO UNNECESSARY OBSTETRICAL INTERVENTION SUCH AS A C-SECTION.))
RUNS=:00
OUT Q=C-section.


The study also found that electronic monitoring is no better at spotting distress than the old fashioned method of listening to the fetal heart rate with a stethoscope. But many experts say eliminate fetal monitoring altogether could also be dangerous.
(/////SOT/////)
SOT
IN Q=We strongly

((WE STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT SOME SORT OF FETAL HEART RATE MONITORING SHOULD BE IMPLEMENTED IN EACH LABOR BECAUSE THE CHOICE BETWEEN HAVING A STILLBIRTH OR EXPOSING YOURSELF TO A SLIGHTLY HIGHER RISK OF CAESAREAN DELIVERY MOST PATIENTS THAT I'VE DISCUSSED THIS WITH WOULD PREFER THE LATER OVER THE FIRST CHOICE.))
RUNS=:00
OUT Q=first choice.


So far the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists agrees.
It says monitoring either electronically or with a stethoscope is advisable, but leaves the final decision up to the woman and her doctor.
The authors of the current study say a careful review of the routine use of fetal monitoring is necessary before doctors will know exactly what is safest for mothers and babies.
