Oligohydramnios Functional Fetal Abnormalities
Decreased perfusion: Oligo can be either loss of fluid or decreased production. A stressed infant will shunt oxygenated blood to more vital organs, less renal perfusion, therefore less urine produced. Anything that decreases placental perfusion can cause it (abruption or placental separation, poor implantation, vascular problems, clots, uterine abnls, etc).

Preeclampsia can cause placental failure and thus poor perfusion of the fetoplacental unit leading to oligohydramnios. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Please advise any treatment?
Oligohydramnios: just means there is less amniotic fluid in your gestational sac than normal. Continue to drink liquids plenty and hope for the best. Oligohydramnios only elevates the perinatal fetal risks such as nuchal cord and fetal hypoxia. Please keep close watch with your OB doctor and good luck. ...Read more
