Actocardiogram: Analysis of Fetal Motion and Heart Rate is a concise guide
to this method of simultaneously tracing foetal heart rate and movement using
a single probe, by Kazuo Maeda from the Tottori University Medical School, Yonago,
Divided into fourteen chapters, the book begins with basic information on electronic foetal monitoring, cardiotocogram, and actocardiogram. Subsequent chapters include topics such as foetal response to acoustic and visual stimulation, foetal central nervous system lesions, automatic computerised analysis and diagnosis of foetal heart rate, and diagnosis of foetal heart rate with rapid and direct alarm system.
The concluding chapters cover problems of cardiotocogram, the solutions provided by actocardiogram, and strategies to prevent foetal brain damage. Actocardiogram: Analysis of Fetal Motion and Heart Rate includes 90 full colour images, enhancing this practical overview of the latest foetal ultrasound technologies.
