This is a high-level clinical reference text on sonographic findings in a range of cases of fetal hypoxia. It contains eleven chapters on hypoxic-ischemic events during fetal life, fetal hemodynamics and brain damage, fetal chronic hypoxia from cocaine exposure, fetal hypoxia from malaria, cerebral and umbilical Doppler ultrasonography, fetal placental embolization, cerebral asphyxial encephalopathy, brain damage, integrity of the fetal nervous system, and fetal heart rate, movement, and blood flow velocity waveform patterns. It also contains a case study of fetal hemodynamics and brain damage related to hypoxia. Unique in its field, the book contains original new material by the world's leading experts on fetal medicine and ultrasound, fully illustrated. Includes bibliographic references and index.
