Fetal diagnostic tests
Medical Hx
-birth defects
Risk factor
-diagnostic/screening test
• Abnormal PAP Test 10
• Chronic HPT 10 Diagnostic vs. screening
• Heart disease NYHA class II-IV Diagnostic – whether a fetus has a particular
(symptomatic) 10 condition w/ certainty but may provide
• Insulin dependent diabetes (>A2) limited information about the other types of
10 birth defects
Screening- not accurate, help to identify
patient at risk who light benefit from Low levels of AFP
diagnostic test -abnormal chromosomal or gestational
trophoblastic disease
Fetal well-being -Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome)
-fetus movements are directly r/t infant’s -Trisomy 18 (Edward's syndrome)
sleep-wake cycle vary from mother
-typical active fetal period lasts 40 min and Chorionic Villi Sampling (CVS)
peaks between 9PM and 10 PM in response -obtain a small part of developing placenta
to maternal hypoglycemia to analyze fetal cells
-10-12 weeks
Ultrasound -results = 24-48 hours
-non-invasive procedure;uses intermittent -can't determine spina bifida/anecephaly
ultrasonic waves transmitted by an -identify chromosome (abnormal)

densities amniocentesis
-requires full bladder (1-2 qts of water)
Transvaginal Ultrasound -insertion of thin needle through abdominal
-detect shortened cervical length/funelling and uterine walls (sample on amniotic fluid);
(predict preterm labor) invasive
-uses a probe inserted into vagina -15-17 weeks
-done early is pregnancy (fetal age, -early: 11-14 weeks of some disorder
suspected etopic pregnancy)
Usage (Amniocentesis)
Transabdominal Ultrasound -identify chromosome abnormalities,
-transducer biochemical disorders and level of AFP
-often scanned with full bladder (water every -spontaneous abortion
15 mins. 90mins before examination) -identify severity of maternal fetal blood
incompatibility and assess fetal lung maturity
Nursing Responsibility (UT2) -Rh (D) immune globulin given to Rh-
-inform patient about the procedure negative woman
-provide comfort and privacy
Nursing Responsibilities (Amniocentesis)

Non-stress Test (NST)
Alpha-Fetoprotein Testing (AFP) -response of FHR to fetal movement
-maternal alpha-fetoprotein test -monitor FHR
-determine level of fetal protein in women's
serum/sample of amniotic fluid Usage of (NST)
-16-22 weeks of pregnancy -identify fetal compromise (poor placenta
High levels of AFP -reassess placenta is functioning well and
-a neural tube defect oxygenated, intact CNS
spinabifidy (open supine)

*Reactive= 2 accelerations of FHR with fetal -identify reduced fetal oxygenation in
movements of 15 beats/min, lasting 15 sec conditions associated with poor placental
or more for 20 min functioning
*2-15 beats-15sec-20min -↑FHR → deprivation of oxygen
-fetal hypoxia increases, FHR changes,
