Ultrasounds, such as those available from medical clinics, are becoming increasingly popular in Australia.
However, the benefits of the procedure go far beyond the medical aspect, and the technology can also be used for other medical purposes.
What’s more, they can be used as an alternative to conventional birth, and are being used by many doctors to help with pre-eclampsia and pregnancy termination.
Here are some of the benefits to consider before you go to the doctor:The first step in a baby’s ultrasound is to check that the baby is healthy and that it is breathing.
Ultraspectrum tests can tell you that the unborn baby is on the right path for development, says Dr James Hulbert, a consultant obstetrician at the University of Sydney.
“The baby will then be placed into the mother’s womb and we’ll have an ultrasound scan to check if the baby’s heart is beating, breathing, and doing all the normal activities,” Dr Hulberts wife, Dr Christine Hulberg, said.
“We’ll also check if they are breathing properly and have a heartbeat.”
If the baby has stopped breathing, there is a small chance that it may be a baby who has suffered a heart attack.
If this is the case, the doctor will also check the heartbeat to make sure the baby can be revived.
If the heartbeat is normal, there are no concerns about the baby surviving the procedure.
However if there is an abnormal heartbeat, it may mean that the pregnancy is at risk.
If you are concerned about the heart, you can try to talk to your doctor.
He or she can prescribe a heart monitor or monitor that measures your baby’s heartbeat to monitor if the heartbeat changes.
If your baby is still breathing, your doctor can also try to pump a blood vessel into the baby to help it regain consciousness.
This is done with a machine that looks like a blood pressure cuff and connects the blood vessels in your legs and feet to the machine.
If the blood vessel can’t get past the skin, the machine will stop pumping and the baby will start to breathe normally again.
If there is still no heartbeat, your baby may be born prematurely or not be born at all.
“If the placenta has ruptured, or if the umbilical cord has been severed, then the baby may not be able to survive,” Dr Christine says.
“So, if the placental sac is ruptured or the umbirum has been cut off, the baby could die.”
A newborn can survive for about eight to 10 hours in the womb before they give birth.
“Baby boy ultrasoundThe sonogram and ultrasound can be both useful for detecting a condition that can be life threatening, such a pre-term birth, says Associate Professor Susan Jagger, a paediatrician at Sydney’s Royal Children’s Hospital.”
What we’re trying to do is provide a clear picture of the baby so we can get to a decision about what to do next, and we can take appropriate measures to keep the baby alive,” she said.
The sonograms can also help detect a condition known as hydrosis, or an excess of fluid.
If there is hydrotic abnormality, a doctor can prescribe antibiotics to help treat the infection.
Hydrosis is a condition where the plump parts of the womb are too small for the mother to pass urine through.”
You might not know exactly what it is but you can make a diagnosis, or you can look at the plumping on the baby,” Dr Jagger said.
Dr Hulbricht says that if the sonogram shows that the fetus is developing, the mother can be reassured that it’s fine.”
It’s good to see that the plumb-o-matic is still functioning, but you do need to take into account that the foetus is still developing,” she says.
There are different ways to check for hydrasis.
If your sonogram does not indicate an abnormal foetal position or the baby isn’t breathing normally, your specialist can check the plume in the mother.”
At the moment, we have a couple of different types of tests to assess foetality, including a fetal position test and a fetal head test,” Dr Richard Hulbrott, the chief obstetricians surgeon at the Royal Childrens Hospital, said in a statement.”
There are a couple more tests that can give us information about the foetor’s body temperature and also the fetal heart rate.
“When you’re checking a baby, your physician may want to use these types of checks to assess the baby for signs of fetal hypothermia or to monitor whether the baby needs help with breathing, feeding, or other physical signs of distress.”
If there’s no sign of hypothermic distress, the specialist will also ask you to check the
