Auszug

Das fetale Herz steht im Zentrum des fetalen Kreislaufs. Seine normale Funktion ist Voraussetzung für eine adäquate Blutversorgung aller fetaler Organe und der Plazenta. Schon geringe Änderungen der Herzfunktion führen zu signifikanten Veränderungen im fetalen Kreislauf und zu entsprechenden Gegenregulationen. Da die Reserven des fetalen Herzens gegenüber einem Neugeborenenoder Erwachsenherzen deutlich eingeschränkt sind, ist eine rechtzeitige Erkennung einer drohenden Herzinsuffizienz von entscheidender Bedeutung.
