Catecholamine secretion in fetal adaptation to stress.

PMID:  2358918     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
From the beginning of labor, the fetus must successfully adapt from intrauterine life to the stress of birth and, finally, to extrauterine life. The role of hormones known as catecholamines in this adaptive mechanism is described. An understanding of the physiology of catecholamine secretion will enhance the nursing care of mothers and their infants during this important transitional period.
