Intrauterine resuscitative measures are commonly initiated during labor when the fetal heart rate (FHR) pattern is indeterminate or abnormal. The most effective use of these measures is directed at the presumed underlying cause. However, some FHR patterns are nonspecific, while others are such that intrauterine resuscitation will not remedy the situation. The goals of intrauterine resuscitation during labor are, at its best, to reverse any hypoxia that might lead to further deterioration, and at the very least to avoid prolonged periods of indeterminate or abnormal FHR patterns, which may cause unnecessary concern for caregivers and patients and unnecessary operative intervention.
