A primer on antenatal testing for neonatal nurses: part 2: tests of fetal well-being

Advances in Neonatal Care : Official Journal of the National Association of Neonatal Nurses
Stephanie N Wyatt, Sarah J Rhoads


A number of new antenatal testing tools are being used in obstetric practice to evaluate the clinical picture of the fetus in utero. Results of these tests may prompt transfer to a tertiary facility for delivery or further antenatal monitoring. Part 2 of this 2-part series will describe antenatal testing methods used to determine fetal well-being, as well as highlight the emerging developments in the field of fetal surveillance. The ability to interpret antenatal testing results may help the neonatal team triage to assure bed availability, and predict and provide appropriate staffing for new admissions, and is an important foundation for subsequent neonatal risks and clinical care.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Torsion dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by loss of control of voluntary movements appearing as sustained muscle contractions and/or abnormal postures. Here is the latest research.

Archaeal RNA Polymerase

Archaeal RNA polymerases are most similar to eukaryotic RNA polymerase II but require the support of only two archaeal general transcription factors, TBP (TATA-box binding protein) and TFB (archaeal homologue of the eukaryotic general transcription factor TFIIB) to initiate basal transcription. Here is the latest research on archaeal RNA polymerases.
