Neuraxial analgesia (spinal or epidural anesthesia) is associated with an increased risk of late decelerations, although it's not dear if this is clinically significant, added Dr.
For some reason it is felt that if there is heavy vaginal bleeding, loss of station, loss of fetal heart rate signal, or a prolonged FHR deceleration, it's time to take a quick look.
In addition, intrauterine growth restricted fetuses have a higher risk of decelerations without a commensurate higher risk of morbidity (Am J Perinatol.
The objective of this study was to design a reliable and valid approach to evaluate overall MWC resistive losses by measuring decelerations during straight and turning trajectories and calculating the resistive forces based on the deceleration profiles.
Appropriate application should require a determination whether a valid or factually new default occurred, whether accelerations or decelerations factually occurred, and whether the prior foreclosure action was dismissed voluntarily or involuntarily.
Heart rate variation and movement incidence in growth-retarded fetuses: the significance of antenatal late heart rate decelerations.
The tracings were of poor quality, but interpretable portions showed minimal variability and significant decelerations during contractions.
In practice, at higher speeds and more drastic decelerations, wheels and suspensions may well give way before the vehicle tips over: so there is potential damage, but it's not a write-off in terms of bodywork.
Table 1 shows the frequency of accelerations and decelerations and their associated growth rates during selected periods.
With the mixer or the roll mill rotors operating individually one can change the friction ratio, the rotor offset, the direction of rotation, the acceleration, speed and deceleration, and one can start and stop under full load for an indefinite time period.
Similarly, both the mean and maximum decelerations were higher during the first exposure compared with the second exposure.
Following a decision to induce labor, the patient's fetus suffered from decelerations in the fetal heart rate (FHR).
