Fetal heart rate

 

Use headphones

This is usually abut 120-140 beats per minute. If it is lower then a fetal bradycardia ensues with the presence of fetal distress below 100 bpm. Above 140 bpm is fetal tachycardia caused mostly by maternal fever as a result of infection, e.g. a chorioamnionitis as a result of prolonged rupture of membranes.
