Hemodynamic and metabolic effects of intrauterine growth restriction on fetal cardiovascular function

Dynamic Functional Assessment of Maternal Hemodynamics in Human Pregnancy

This PhD project will be based on some data from two larger on-going studies (one cross-sectional and another longitudinal) investigating maternal and fetal cardiovascular function using noninvasive techniques in healthy and pathological pregnancies at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University Hospital of North Norway. Following three studies will be included in the thesis.

1. Effect of passive leg-raising on maternal systemic hemodynamics at 22-24 weeks of gestation.

2. A longitudinal study of preload reserve in the second half of pregnancy.

3. Functional Hemodynamic profile of pregnant women at increased risk of developing preeclampsia.
