PMID:  6705966     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A sinusoidal heart-rate pattern (SHR) is usually considered to signify fetal distress. Two cases are reported in which a sinusoidal-like fetal heart-rate pattern was caused by fetal sucking movements as observed by real-time ultrasonography. The patterns observed in these two fetuses were similar to that found in the neonate during suckling.
