Stimulators, Acoustic, Fetal

Definition : Sound stimulators used to assess fetal well-being. These stimulators consist of a sound source (e.g., an artificial electronic larynx) that is placed on the maternal abdomen over the fetal vertex to apply a vibroacoustic pulse stimulus typically a few seconds long. Sound stimulators are used to evaluate the condition of a fetus (e.g., heart-rate changes, acid-base status) in antepartum tests and/or during intrapartum monitoring.
