Abstract

The predictive value of fetal heart-rate monitoring on fetal well-being was studied in 2165 high-risk pregnancies. 1883 reactive nonstress test (NST) patterns and 278 nonreactive NST patterns and 4 cases of sinusoidal pattern were obtained. Oxytocin challenge test (OCT) was applied to 263 nonreactive cases.
