  • Fetal Distress in Labor

    Signs and symptoms of fetal distress include: Reduced fetal movement or lack of movement altogether Meconium (fetal feces) in amniotic fluid Decreased heart rate A significant[] Signs and Symptoms of Fetal distress: Either in pregnancy, which would be picked up through reduced fetal movements (kicks) Or in labour, when it would usually be detected[] Reduced fetal movements. Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, Green-top guideline, 57. RCOG. 2012. Information for you: your baby's movements in pregnancy.[]

  • Abruptio Placentae

    Be aware of other symptoms, such as abdominal cramping or severe pain, backache, and reduced fetal movement.[]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy with Respiratory Distress Type 1

    Antenatally, the mother, noticed reduced fetal movements in the last 2 weeks of gestation, and there was polyhydramnios on antenatal scans.[] There may be a history of reduced fetal movements in utero. Mortality/morbidity : median survival is 7 months - 95% die before 18 months.[] The most severe manifestation on the SMA spectrum can be noticeable to mothers late in their pregnancy by reduced or absent fetal movements.[]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    The pregnancy history displays reduced fetal movements and poli-hydramnios. Clinical signs are present at birth.[] Suggestive of a prenatal origin of the hypotonia in infancy are the following: family history (consanguineity, familial muscle disorder); pregnancy history (reduced fetal[] movements, polyhydramnios, vertex presentation); general physical examination at birth (joint contractures, pes cavus, skin dimples, sucking and swallowing difficulty, reduced[]

  • Fetal Hypoxia

    Perinatal deaths, neonatal asphyxia and neurological sequela were reduced by the fetal monitoring, and fetal movements were studied using the same ultrasound, as fetal heart[] […] cardiotocogram (CTG) monitored intrapartum Fetal Heart Rate (FHR), with fetal ECG detected by fetal scalp Needle electrode, and external monitor with ultrasonic Doppler fetal[]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    We present a male patient with SMAX2 who presented with typical symptoms at birth, preceded by reduced fetal movements in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy.[] Here we report a male infant who presented from birth with predominantly truncal hypotonia following an antenatal history of reduced fetal movements.[] There may be a history of reduced fetal movements in utero. Mortality/morbidity : median survival is 7 months - 95% die before 18 months.[]

  • Congenital Merosin-Positive Muscular Dystrophy

    Onset is often at birth with congenital proximal contractures and arthrogryposis caused by reduced fetal movements, hypotonia, and early hyperlaxity of distal joints (Figure[] A history of reduced fetal movements in pregnancy and polyhydramnios can be elicited in most instances.[] fetal movements and presence of polyhydramnios, maternal diseases (diabetes, epilepsy).[]

  • Perinatal Lethal Gaucher Disease

    The fourth pregnancy initially appeared to be progressing normally, although the mother did comment that she felt fetal movement was somewhat reduced.[] An ultrasound scan at 30 weeks showed the presence of fetal hydrops and fetal bradycardia.[]

  • Placental Infarction

    The lesion termed 'placental infarction hematoma' is associated with fetal death and adverse perinatal outcome. Such a lesion has been associated with a high risk of fetal death and abruption placentae. The fetal and placental hemodynamic changes associated with placental infarction hematoma have not been reported.[…][]

  • Pheochromocytoma

    Pheochromocytoma is a rare catecholamine-secreting tumour that is typically located in the adrenal medulla or along the sympathetic ganglia. The typical symptoms are episodic in nature and include tachycardia, sweating and headache. These tumours can present as transient, reversible cardiomyopathy similar to[…][]
