Mathematical Analysis of Combined Placental-Fetal Oxygen Transport
During contractions of labor, uterine blood flow varies directly with the strength and duration of the contraction (3,5,6). in addition to observations in sheep and dogs, radioangiographic studies have shown that in both monkeys and humans, placental intervillous blood flow is reianded in bySynchrony Will the atenine contractions of labor (2,13). Prolonged partial asphyxia resulting from strong oxytoxin induced contractions have been shown to produce varying degrees of brain damage in term monkey fetuses (11,12).
