Appendix 1
Essentiality of Fetal Domestic Monitor
Modern medicine think that:
FHR is an important gist to identify fetal health, by recording FHR changes can observe fetal
hypoxia, fetal distress and the umbilical cord around the neck, and other symptoms. Fetal
domestic monitor test FHR changes by listening to fetal heart sound mainly; Fetal domestic
monitor is a powerful guarantee to improve generational safety.
Fetal heart rate changes most obviously in the following three periods:
1) within 30 minutes after pregnant women get up
2) within 60 minutes after pregnant women finish lunch
3) within 30 minutes before pregnant women go to bed
For the above three periods, because of the change of the body status of pregnant women, the
activity of food digesting needs the body to provide more oxygen, relatively, the oxygen for fetus
become less. It is easy to arose symptoms such as fetus anoxia. Testing the FHR at this time can
display the healthy status for the fetus best.
The above three periods can only be tested at home by pregnant women themselves, so FHR
domestic monitor is very important.
This Pocket Fetal Doppler can hear the fetal heart sound for fetus above twelve weeks, and
calculate the FHR with check the LCD display. You can listen to the fetal heart sound for 1-2
minutes every time. Pregnant women can take down the record data which can be a reference for
doctors to insure the health of the fetus.
