1/3. fetal heart rate decelerations after oxytocin infusion in an abdominal pregnancy.

    fetal heart rate (FHR) decelerations during a contraction stress test are recognized as signs of possible uteroplacental insufficiency. Although these decelerations have been described commonly in intrauterine pregnancies, they have not been noted in extrauterine pregnancies. Reported herein are FHR decelerations associated with oxytocin infusion in an extrauterine pregnancy and a discussion of the possible pathophysiologic mechanisms.

2/3. Sudden fetal death in labor. The significance of antecedent monitoring characteristics and clinical circumstances.

    Three patients experienced sudden fetal death in labor. The clinical presentations of the patients and their preceding monitoring patterns are discussed. A typical example of a benign, sustained deceleration in a healthy fetus is given for comparison. The characteristics of the clinical and monitoring behavior of the premorbid patient are discussed, and suggestions for appropriate responses to avoid fetal death are offered.

3/3. Intrauterine fetal demise after negative oxytocin challenge tests.

    The oxytocin challenge test was used to evaluate the fetoplacental unit in 572 patients over a 5-year period. Four fetuses died in utero within 7 days of a negative test. None had periodic fetal heart rate decelerations of any type. All 4 showed periodic accelerations of the fetal heart rate (FHR) in association with fetal movement. Two had baseline changes in the fetal heart rate during the oxytocin challenge test.
