Could be normal : Usually by 12 weeks fhts are heard on fetal doppler. If only a few seconds were tried, it wasn't a very dedicated attempt at listening. It's important to hear fhts both to document a live & healthy fetus and to reassure both mom & OB that all is well. If you have no cramps or bleeding & a nl us @ 8 weeks, you're prob ok. It would have been better though if your OB had let you hear or see the fhr. ...Read more

What is the significance of a LAVI Range of 47 (Severely Abnormal) on a Doppler Echo if the other tests on the Echo are normal?

What is the significance of a LAVI Range of 47 (Severely Abnormal) on a Doppler Echo if the other tests on the Echo are normal?

Diastolic dysfxn: LAVI references left atrial volume, indexed to body surface area. A value of 47 suggests the chamber is larger than normal, and likely related to elevation of pressures in that chamber. This is called diastolic dysfunction, and suggests your heart may be stiff from potential common underlying issues, such as hypertension or aging. It may be asymptomatic and may not cause long-term issues. ...Read more
