The nipple stimulation test is to rub the nipple on one side for 2 minutes or until a contraction occurs. The advantages of this test are reduced cost and reduced test time. Precautions for nipple stimulation test: inappropriate population: pregnant women near the delivery period. Taboo before inspection: None. Requirements for inspection: Check your relaxation and wear loose clothes. Rub the nipple on one side for 2 minutes or until a contraction occurs. If the first nipple stimulation test does not induce 3 contractions within 10 minutes, then the test should be restarted after 5 minutes.

Basic Information

Specialist classification: maternity inspection inspection classification: other inspection

Applicable gender: whether women are fasting: not fasting

Analysis results:

Below normal:

Normal value:
no

Above normal:

negative:
Normal: OCT is negative. That is, if the fetal heart rate baseline is mutated or the FHR is accelerated after fetal movement, there is no late deceleration.

Positive:
If repeated deceleration occurs repeatedly after multiple contractions, the baseline variation of fetal heart rate is reduced, and there is no FHR increase after fetal movement, which is positive for OCT. If it is positive, it suggests that the placental function is reduced. Because of the false positives, the significance is not as large as negative. You can add urine E3 value or other tests to further understand the placental function.

Tips: When checking: Ask to relax and wear loose clothes. Normal value

If the fetal heart rate baseline is mutated or the FHR is accelerated after fetal movement, there is no late deceleration, which is negative for OCT.

Clinical significance

Abnormal results: If multiple decelerations were repeated after multiple contractions, the baseline variation of fetal heart rate decreased, and no FHR increased after fetal movement, which was positive for OCT.

If it is positive, it suggests that the placental function is reduced. Because of the false positives, the significance is not as large as negative. You can add urine E3 value or other tests to further understand the placental function.

People who need to be examined: pregnant women.

Precautions

Taboo before inspection: None.

Requirements for inspection: Check your relaxation and wear loose clothes.

Inspection process

Rub the nipple on one side for 2 minutes or until a contraction occurs. If the first nipple stimulation test does not induce 3 contractions within 10 minutes, then the test should be restarted after 5 minutes.

Not suitable for the crowd

Inappropriate people: pregnant women near the birth.
