Author(s): Dr. Rathi Priya
Abstract: In a country like India, with a large population and limited resources, the antepartum surveillance modalities have to be cost-effective and should be able to screen large population effectively. The non-stress test or the NST has a major role to play in such a situation because of the practical advantages it offers in terms of simplicity and cost-effectiveness. The patients were divided into 2 study groups one containing high risk pregnancies and control group of low risk pregnancies. Non-reactive NST/CTG were used for surveillance from 34 weeks of gestation. Patients were first given a description of the procedure they had to undergo after a preliminary history taking, thorough general examination & obstetric examination. Informed consent was taken. The abnormal test group showed statistically increased incidence of fetal distress during labour p< 0.006 in NST and 0.007 in CTG respectively. Meconium stained amniotic fluid were significant p<0.01 in NST and p<0.01 in CTG respectively.
