Abstract

Modernization of obstetric care for fetal hypoxia is proposed by hyperventilating the mother’s lungs
with oxygen before the first symptoms of oxygen poisoning, General hypothermia of her body, and local
hypothermia of the fetal head in the final period of delivery. The review shows the possibility of indirectly
estimating the rate of oxygen exchange in the fetal cortex of brain by monitoring the local temperature of
the head surface above the crevices and fontanels of the skull. It is shown that progress was achieved by
using new data from ultrasound and infrared monitoring of fetal health.
