Doppler velocimetry in the evaluation of fetal hypoxia

Saemundur Gudmundsson and Mariusz Dubiel
From the journal


Knowledge of fetal hemodynamic physiology has developed enormously during the last two decades due to Doppler ultrasound. Some of this knowledge has been utilized for routine surveillance of high-risk pregnancies. The prediction of fetal hypoxia before the development of life lasting sequel is of major importance, especially in the very premature case with absent end-diastolic blood flow in the umbilical artery before lung maturity. This review gives an overview of the present knowledge in this field.
