1

What is normal basline HR
tachycardia?
bradycardia?

110-160 bpm
>160 for 10 min
<110 for 10 min

2

What determines variability

SNS and PSNS interplay, large inc or dec in variability is a bad sing

3

When do you see early decelerations? What causes early decels?

see along with contraction

due to head compression --> CN X stimulation

4

what is a variable decel?

due to cord compression, has no relation to contractions

5

What is a late decel?

happens after contraction, die to uteroplacental insufficiency

6

What is a reactive accelration?

2x accels/20 mins
acel = inc 15bpm over 15s

7

What does a sinusodal patter indicate?

fetal anemia (fetal vascualure rupture)

8

Cat 1 vs 2 vs 3 characteristics

1: FHR 110-160, moderate variability, no late//variable decels
2: everything else
3: absent variabilty + recurrent late/variable decels, bradycardia, sinusodal pattern

9

What are recuscutatuve measures in labor for bad looking baby

give O2 and change maternal position
