OBJECTIVE: We developed a computerized heart-rate variability index related to the fetal parasympathetic activity: the Fetal Stress Index (FSI). The objective was to determine whether the FSI is related to the visual analysis of the fetal heart rate (FHR). METHODS: Thirty tracings recorded at a labor ward were classified according to the NICHD categories: (I) normal FHR tracing, (II) intermediate risk of acidosis, and (III) high risk. FSI was calculated as minimum, maximum, and mean, and was evaluated before the onset of the FHR pattern, during the 10 min following, and between 10 and 20 min after that...

BACKGROUND: Endometriosis in adolescent girls is often diagnosed after a long delay. This diagnostic delay can be associated with more advanced stages of endometriosis and with a higher likelihood of fertility problems at a later age. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A systematic review of literature and quality assessment was performed in order to identify questionnaires that were developed to identify adult women with endometriosis. Based on these questionnaires, specific questions that had been reported to be predictive for endometriosis were selected and included in a newly composed questionnaire with the aim to identify adolescents at risk of developing endometriosis...

PURPOSE: This study was aimed at determining if significant uterine tachysystole was associated with adverse fetal or neonatal outcomes during cervical ripening and induction of labor. METHODS: Women undergoing cervical ripening and subsequent labor induction (n = 905) were assessed for tachysystole, defined as ≥6 contractions in each of 2 consecutive 10-minute windows. Women with ≥3 episodes of tachysystole were compared to women with no tachysystole. RESULTS: Over a 5-year period, 70% of the 905 participants (n = 631) had no tachysystole, 143 had 1 or 2 episodes whereas 131 or 15% had ≥3 episodes (p = 0...
