  13. 13. FETAL KICK CHART<br />Commonest methods – Cardiff ‘count to ten’<br />Start count at 9am every morning<br />Record the time taken for baby to move 10 times <br />Normal fetal activity-little variation in time taken<br />↓ fetal activity [fetal compromise] - delay in time taken<br />Benefit: detection of fetal compromise, more easier and cheap<br />Limitation: Maternal anxiety is common, unsure of movement, is a crude guide and sometimes inconsistent<br />

  18. 18. DIAGNOSTIC ULTRASOUND SCAN<br />- 2 dimensional map of content of uterus.<br />- Image constantly updated in real time and fetal cardiac and other movement can be studied.<br />- < 12 weeks usage oftransvaginaltransducer.<br />- > 12 weeks usage of abdominal transducer.<br />- Good image depend on operator skill.<br />- Disadvantages : Bio effects on cells, inducing heating.<br />

  22. 22. FETAL MEASUREMENTS<br />
  23. 23. FETAL MEASUREMENT<br />Common = relatively ‘spared’ in growth restriction<br />Sensitive = organ that are sensitive to changes to any factor that cause IUGR [liver/spleen]<br />

  30. 30. ABDOMINAL CIRCUMFERENCE<br />Abdominal Circumference<br />
  31. 31. GESTATIONAL AGE ASSESSMENT<br />CRL/BPD  these measurements are plotted on the normogram<br />Predictions of gestational age by ultrasound scan before 20 weeks is more accurate than predictions from last menstrual period. <br />Measurements are done at least 2 week apart<br />Measurements are plotted in centile-charts against a normogram<br />
  32. 32. MEASUREMENT ON FETAL GROWTH CHART<br />
  33. 33. Consistent growth of <br />Small fetus<br />
  34. 34. Slowed growth—<br />fetal compromise<br />
  35. 35. FETAL SYMMETRY<br />↑HC: Hydrocephalus<br />↓HC: Microcephaly<br />↓FL: constitutional short stature, achondroplasia<br />↑AC: Diabetic pregnancy,<br />↓AC: triploidy / trisomy 18<br />Asymmetry: IUGR<br />
  36. 36. PLACENTA<br />Transvaginal scan: if the placenta covers the internal os major placenta praevia<br />Mid pregnancy scan  low-lying placenta<br />3rd pregnancy scan  minor placenta praevia<br />
  37. 37. OTHERS CONDITION<br />Amniotic Fluid scan: commonly base on AFI [if <2cm: Oligohydramnious, >7cm: Polyhdramnious]<br />Umbilical Cord: scan with colourdoppler [Nuchal displacement: common event associated with fetal distress]<br />Invasive procedure: amniocentesis, chorionvillus sampling, cordocentesis, fetal bladder shunt therapy, fetoscopy and endoscope.<br />

  39. 39. AIMS OF ROUTINE ULTRASOUND SCAN<br />
  40. 40. Magnetic Resonance Imaging: useful when i) US images are not diagnostic or ii) suboptimal because of maternal obesity<br />
  41. 41.
  42. 42. MRI<br />
  43. 43. 39<br />AMNIOTIC FLUID<br /><ul><li>Produce: Kidneys & Lungs
  44. 44. Remove: Fetal swallowing and blood
  45. 45. Functions : Prevent mechanical injury, permit </li></ul> movement and lung development <br /><ul><li>4 quadrant method (R/L hypocondrium R/L illiacfossa) </li></li></ul><li>AMNIOTIC FLUID INDEX<br />Liquor volume reflects the placental size, placental function and fetal metabolism<br />Sum of all the maximum vertical pool of liquor from the 4 quadrant of the uterus<br />In 3rd tri, normal AFI should be between 10 and 25cm <br />AFI -below 5cm -oligohydramnios<br /> above 25cm -polyhydramnios<br />
  46. 46.
  47. 47. DOPPLER ULTRASOUND<br /><ul><li>Measuring blood velocity in umbilical artery of fetus.
  48. 48. Recorded in waveform pattern :
  49. 49. Systolic - blood velocity speeds up.
  50. 50. Diastolic - blood velocity slows down (depending amount resistant in arterial bed in placenta).</li></li></ul><li>Doppler Umbilical Artery Waveforms<br />Measure blood velocity in umbilical artery of fetus<br />Recorded in waveform pattern showing a systolic & diastolic component<br />During normal fetal life, diastolic flow in the umbilical artery↑ gradually (placental resistance falls) withgestation<br />In placental damage/insufficiency- absent/reversed end diastolic flow which leads to fetal distress and intrauterine death.<br />
  51. 51. Doppler Uterine Artery Waveforms<br />Assessment of uterine artery waveforms at 24th weeks’ gestation.<br />Benefits: Even at absence of risk factors, severely abnormal waveforms identify 75% of pregnancies at risk of adverse neonatal outcome in early 3rd trimester.<br />Limitations: Less effective at prediction of later problems.<br />
