Abstract

A number of new antenatal testing tools are being used in obstetric practice to evaluate the clinical picture of the fetus in utero. Results of these tests may prompt transfer to a tertiary facility for delivery or further antenatal monitoring. Part 2 of this 2-part series will describe antenatal testing methods used to determine fetal well-being, as well as highlight the emerging developments in the field of fetal surveillance. The ability to interpret antenatal testing results may help the neonatal team triage to assure bed availability, and predict and provide appropriate staffing for new admissions, and is an important foundation for subsequent neonatal risks and clinical care.
