The health of the unborn baby can be monitored
Fetal Internal Monitoring is a method that enables direct monitoring of the unborn baby in risky pregnancies. Acıbadem Hospital Kadıköy Obstetrics and Gynecology Specialist, High Risk Pregnancy Clinical Responsible Assoc. Dr. Arda Lembet says, sırasında With this method, during the labor, the possibility of the baby's being deprived of oxygen may end up risking his health. ”
The health of the unborn baby is of paramount importance during pregnancy and during labor. Although there are many technological methods, the findings are sometimes insufficient. The latest method, fetal monitoring system, is now easier to assess or monitor the health of infants in the womb! The aim of this method is to show that the babies have sufficient oxygen in the uterus and to detect the insufficient oxygenation called “hypoxia” or “asphyxia end early and to minimize the near and far-term risks on the baby. Acıbadem Hospital Kadıköy Obstetrics and Gynecology Specialist, High Risk Pregnancy Clinical Responsible Assoc. Dr. Arda Lembet mentions two kinds of infant health monitoring system: iki There are two methods of monitoring as External (Internal) and Internal (Internal) Monitoring. By external monitoring, baby heart movements and contraction of the uterus (birth pain) can only be monitored indirectly, that is, by devices placed on the mother's abdomen. The alternative to this method is the Internal monitoring or direct birth monitoring and follow-up method that we have started to apply in Acibadem Hospital High Risk Pregnancy Service and Delivery Department. ”
Used in high-risk pregnancies
With some diseases that exist in the prenatal mother or the baby, some problems that may arise during labor are important risks for the mother and the baby. Such pregnancies are called high-risk pregnancies. Especially in this tube pregnancy, the follow-up of the expectant mother is much more important. Assoc. Dr. Lembet says about the high-risk pregnancies: and overdose are at risk. While monitoring the health status of babies during pregnancy and labor is important in all patients, monitoring and delivery of patients under High Risk Pregnancies are different because of the increased risk, and these patients should be monitored in specialized and experienced centers.
How does the direct birth monitoring system work?
In direct monitoring methods, the heart of the baby is evaluated as one-to-one, very clear and healthy, with a very small electrode attached to the baby's head after the cervix reaches a certain opening during delivery. In recent years, dün Fetal Pulse Oximeter ”(infant oxygen measurement) method is used among the direct baby health monitoring methods in the world. A sensor attached to the baby's skin makes it possible to estimate the amount of oxygen the baby receives during the entire labor. Thus, in cases where the baby's heart movements and health status cannot be evaluated clearly by classical methods, this measurement determines the health and oxygenation of the baby in the uterus. This allows rapid delivery. This is the biggest benefit of this method anyway. It is seen that the baby's condition is not as bad as it is thought and that unnecessary intervention is made in about 40% -60% of the cases where the baby is thought to be stressed by classical methods. The method eliminates this error.
Measure the severity of pain
Another feature of the direct monitoring method is that it allows the measurement of the pressure created in the uterus by means of a special connection after opening the cervix during labor and the delivery of fluid into the uterus. Assoc. Dr. Lembet explains the benefit of this: larda It is impossible to comment on the actual power of birth pains by classical methods, especially in cases of artificial pain in labor. Because of these methods, pain is indirectly monitored by devices connected to the abdomen of the patient. In direct follow-up, pain intensity can be quantified with great clarity. With the help of this information, it is possible to give artificial pain and to follow the plan of labor and to select the most appropriate drug doses and to detect abnormal birth processes early. The greatest benefit of the method of introducing fluid into the uterus is that amniotic fluid around the infant is insufficient and that these findings can be completely corrected in infants with signs of umbilical cord compression. In addition, in babies who are excreting on the womb, the fluid is prevented from swallowing the faeces of the babies and the problems that may arise due to this. ”
