A low p H provides an indirect measure of hypoxia. Continuous readings have been obtained using a p H electrode applied to the subcutaneous tissues of the fetal scalp. Whilst this provides trend data and perhaps an earlier warning of fetal hypoxia than intermittent sampling, the correlation between p H Values following intermittent sampling and the p H electrode remains in question. Confirmation of its value in predicting neonatal outcome requires large studies. 34 EFFECTS OF ANAESTHESIA AND ANALGESIA ON THE RABY Respiratoy gas measurements Intermittent values for fetal oxygen and carbon dioxide tensions may be obtained at the same time as intermittent p H readings but the procedure is invasive.

Filled arrows represent direction of net pethidine transfer. Unfilled arrows represent direction of blood flow. " T h e ratio between total pethidine concentration in UA and in maternal blood increases with time. T h e longer the dose-to-delivery interval, the higher the ratio and often unity is reached after 2-4 hours (Fig. 3b). " demonstrated unity for the UNUV ratio 120 minutes after intramuscular pethidine and greater than one thereafter. After this time, if no more pethidine is administered, there is net transfer of pethidine back to the mother (Fig.

Habituation tests examine the ability of the newborn to cease responding to a repetitive test such as a noise or light stimulus. A failure to habituate may occur following exposure to systemic opioids in labour or from neonatal asphyxia. Although it is quicker to perform than the BNBAS, taking only 5-10 minutes, the ENNS still requires significant training to achieve reliable results. T h e Neurologic and Adaptive Capacity Score (NACS) was proposed by Amiel-Tison et al. ’ It aims to differentiate between the depressant effects of drugs used in labour from those effects secondary to birth trauma and perinatal asphyxia, by including an examination of tone differences in the extensor and flexor muscles of the neck.
