What is a non-reassuring fetal heart rate tracing?

What is a non-reassuring fetal heart rate tracing?

Babies tell us a lot: Monitoring a fetus by fetal hr, ultrasound or the expectant woman's perception of activity is important.

If a baby is near term and the testing is worrisome then obstetric specialists or subspecialists might deliver. But conditions can change. Plus every case is different. ...Read more

Depends: It depends on the type of dysrhythmia and the rate. For example, atrial fibrillation with a heart rate in the 70-80s may cause no symptoms at all.

Is 81 bmp a safe heart rate? Not resting heart rate.

Is 81 bmp a safe heart rate? Not resting heart rate.

I think so: I think ur asking if a heart rate of 81 when you are not resting (so perhaps after you exercise?) is a safe rate; if that's correct then yes 81 is probably fine. A "normal" heart rate varies depending on lots of things (age, activity, emotions, meds, hydration status, more). In general the better shape you're in, the lower your rate goes. And with vigorous exercise it can go up much higher than 81. ...Read more
