Flowmetry, also known as flow measurement, is used to measure the fetal circulation. Only in justified cases will this ultrasound be performed.
What is Flowmetry?Doppler ultrasound aids in the examination of the fetal circulation and blood flow. In the course of blood flow testing, it is examined that the values measured in the uterine lymphatic vessels, the arteries of the amniotic cord, the fetal abdominal aorta fetal oxygenation, the whether the mare is functioning properly.The test graphically depicts the flow conditions measured in the umbilical cord, the fetal abdominal artery, and the fetal skull, and also informs the flapper when it is functioning. there is a malfunction in the butterfly, for example, the size of the fetus is smaller than age, maternal pregnancy toxemia occurs, maternal high blood pressure, suspicion of CTG / NST curves, low fetal water volume and twin pregnancies.
It is common practice in several hospitals to order a flowmetry test every two weeks from the age of 40 onwards. If the flowmetry test is OK, the fetus will receive sufficient nutrients and oxygen. The advantage of examinations is that non-invazнv, so the examination does not penetrate into the maternal body, because it provides sufficiently accurate information on the condition of the fetus in utero.For flowmetry examination, the fetal oxygen-deficient condition and the resultant condition can be detected.
- Development of fetal circulation
- Oxygenic status
- Does the shelter work efficiently?
