After a woman is pregnant, she is always worried about the health of the child in her belly. Especially in the third trimester. There are many uncertain factors that will affect the health of children. In addition to monitoring the fetal movement during the third trimester, the child’s fetal heart rate must also be monitored. Generally in the third trimester, the pregnant mother's belly is very big and it is not convenient to move. Families with conditions will prepare home fetal heart rate monitors for pregnant women. So how does the home fetal heart rate look at the fetal heart rate?
The fetal heartbeat detector can mainly monitor and record the fetal heart rate, used to judge whether the fetus is abnormal in the uterus, and make corresponding treatment according to the fetal heart rate.
(1) Do a good job of timing first
It is very convenient to use the home fetal heart rate monitor, and mothers do not need to go to the hospital for fetal heart rate monitoring frequently. First find the specific location of the fetal heart, put the fetal heartbeat detector on the belly, and then you can hear the sound of the fetal heartbeat. Prepare for the timing first, then place the fetal heart rate monitor on the position where the fetal heart rate is present, and after one minute, look at the specific value on the fetal heart rate monitor's display.
(2) Secondly, pay attention to the value of fetal heart rate
If the fetal heartbeat detector shows 120 to 160 beats per minute, this situation is normal. But Momma should also know that the values of fetal heart rate are not always within a range of values, and sometimes small fluctuations occur. If there is a small fluctuation, mothers don't need to worry too much, this is within the normal range.
(3) After the final use of the instrument, keep it properly
It is recommended that parents use it for about one minute at a time, wipe off the excess couplant with a clean cloth, and save the fetal heart rate for the next use. Before use, it is best for parents to read the instructions accurately and learn the correct method of storage to prevent damage to the home fetal heart rate monitor.
Parents should also note that it is not necessary to have a home fetal heart rate monitor, so you do not need to go to the hospital for fetal heart rate monitoring. The home fetal heart rate monitor can only be used as an auxiliary reference, and the specific values should be based on professional doctors!
