pregnant-care

Overview

Non-stress testing is a popular prenatal test that is done to check on the health of the unborn child. The name non-stress alludes to the fact that none of it is done to stress the child’s system throughout the test. While the unborn baby is undergoing a non-stress test, their heartbeat is tracked to evaluate how it reacts to physical activities.

After twenty-six to twenty-eight weeks of pregnancy, a non-stress test can be performed to determine the status of the pregnancy. If the pregnancy is high risk  a nonstress test is often advised. 

Some non-stress test findings may suggest that you and the child need more surveillance, screening, or specialist care, and you should seek medical attention immediately.

What is Non-Stress Testing?

A non-stress test is a non-invasive diagnostic method that is safe for pregnant women. It’s a non-invasive procedure that does not need cutting into the surface or entering any portion of the body. 

An unborn baby’s heartbeat is measured while the baby kicks about in the uterus during the test. The pulse rate of most normal unborn babies, generally known as the fetal heart rate, rises as they move about within the mother’s womb.

If the results of your nonstress test reveal that your baby’s heartbeat was higher or lower than usual, it is possible that he or she is not receiving enough oxygenation. If this occurs, you may require additional screening or treatment, and in rare situations, a preterm delivery may be planned, for this, your healthcare professional will administer medication or employ other ways to initiate early labor.

The test may be performed at a hospital that has a dedicated prenatal testing facility. Alternatively, it may be performed at the office or clinic of the healthcare provider. However, a standard nonstress test could look something like this:

  • You will be asked to lay down on an examination table in a relaxed position. The provider applies gel to the area around your stomach and places a belt around your waist. A transducer, which is a small electronic gadget, is connected to the belt. 
  • This includes a fetal heart rate sensor that is worn externally. It is placed well over the region where the baby’s heart can be felt by the physician.
  • It is possible to record the baby’s heartbeat on a screen and a paper sheet.
  • Everytime you feel like your baby is kicking, you would be asked to press a button on the screen to record it.
  • This examination lasts typically between 20 to 40 minutes.

There are certain circumstances when the testing is done throughout the day to record the baby’s sleep pattern, when there is a minimal fetal movement. To awake the infant, employing an acoustic device with a specific sound may be necessary. It is put on the mother’s stomach and emits a buzzing sound similar to a buzzer. 

This has no negative impact on the infant. However, it may assist a drowsy infant in becoming more energetic. If you drink or eat anything, your child may also wake up.

Before and after testing

Before the non-stress test starts, your blood pressure will be measured and recorded.

After the nonstress test is completed, your healthcare professional will likely discuss findings with you.

The following are the predicted results of a nonstress test:

  • Reactive – Suppose your baby’s heart rate speeds to a specific level just above benchmark repeatedly for at least 10 seconds within a 20-minute interval, then the findings are regarded normal before week 32 of pregnancy. 

When the baby’s heart rate speeds to a specific level above the benchmark twice or more than that for 15 seconds during a 20-minute time frame in 32 weeks of pregnancy or beyond, then the findings are termed reactive.

  • Nonreactive – As long as your baby’s heart rate does not match the requirements outlined above, the findings are nonreactive. It is possible that your infant was idle or sleeping throughout the test, which will result in nonreactive findings.

How to choose the best hospital?

When looking for the finest non-stress hospital, here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Patient feedback should be checked since all hospitals rely on patient services. The rating would show the hospital’s expertise.
  • The best way to choose the best medical care is to examine the physicians’ training, credentials, and expertise. It is recommended to check doctor bios and ratings before picking hospitals.
  • Find a lodging community hospital you can rely on and go about effortlessly. Look for nearby hospitals and services, including drugstores, hotels, housing, and transportation. You could also check for nearby ATMs and financial transaction providers.

Conclusion

Doctors may advise you to undergo further testing if you have a nonreactive result, including biophysical profiling and a contractions stress test. However, if your physician believes that your baby’s health is in danger within the womb, they will most likely induce early birth or send you to the clinic for further monitoring.
