    What is the use of fetal ECG during pregnancy?

    Why do you need a fetal electrocardiogram during pregnancy? As we all know, b-ultrasound is an indispensable imaging examination during pregnancy. So, do you know that fetal ECG is still needed during pregnancy? The function of fetal ECG examination is also very important. Introduce it to expectant mothers.

    The role of fetal electrocardiogram

    Some clinical conditions such as the neonatal period, holter ecgthe childhood period of 5 to 10 years, and the middle age of 40 to 50 years of age, some of the clinical conditions such as premature beats in these three stages may be related to the fetal period, which means that there may be symptoms such as premature beats in the fetus. It's just a pity that many mothers didn't have fetal electrocardiograms at that time.

    If the expectant mother finds that the fetus has premature beats and arrhythmia during pregnancy, it is mainly related to the expectant mother’s cold, fever, umbilical cord around the neck, and congenital heart disease. Treating the mother in time and adjusting the fetal environment can solve the problems of premature beats and arrhythmia. Even if it doesn't work, you can still use radiofrequency ablation to treat premature delivery after the baby is born.

    The time for expectant mothers to do fetal ECG is not clearly specified, and expectant mothers can decide whether to do it according to their own conditions and the doctor’s advice. In general, doctors recommend that mothers-to-be take an electrocardiogram before the first diagnosis, 32-34 weeks of pregnancy, and during childbirth to confirm the heart condition.
