It was aimed to investigate the effects of short-term maternal fasting on fetal biophysical profile (BPP) scores and obstetric doppler indices.
Materials and methods
Thirty healthy uncomplicated singleton pregnancy cases were enrolled into the study.
Results and conclusion
Fasting decreased BPP reversibly, but not to a level below 8/10. AFI, umbilical and MCA impedances were unchanged while pulsatility, resistance and systolic/diastolic values of uterine arteries were increased.
