CASE STUDY ON INTRAUTERINE FETAL DEMISEBSN 2A1-5Mrs. Liza May Jecino, R.N., M.A.N. OUR LADY OF FATIMA UNIVERSITY College of Nursing Regalado, Fairview, Quezon CityINTRODUCTIONIntrauterine Fetal Death Demise (IUFD) is the death of a fetus that occurs for no apparent reason in a normal, uncomplicated pregnancy. It happens in about 1 percent of pregnancies and is usually (depending on the resource) considered a fetal death when it occurs after the 20th week of pregnancy and/or weight equal to or more than 500 grams. It may be suspected when the mother ceases to feel fetal movement, and the obstetrician is unable to hear fetal heart tones. When the question of fetal death arises during labor, an internal fetal monitor can be applied to the presenting part. Maternal cardiac electrical activity can be transmitted through a dead fetus, however, so the rate and rhythm on the tracing should be compared with those of the mother.In this case, the fetus died in utero. The mothers preeclampsia and premature rupture of membranes contributed to it. The preeclamptic condition of the mother led to an oxidative stress in the fetus which was not given an immediate medical attention and so fetal respiration was arrested.
