  But unlike weighing the baby on a scale after birth, even the best ultrasound measurements aren't % reliable. There is no method of checking fetal size before delivery can provide more than an estimated fetal weight (EFW). These four ultrasound measurements are the ones used most frequently to estimate fetal weight: HC: Head circumference.   Belete, W., Gaym, A.: Clinical estimation of fetal weight in low resource settings: comparison of Johnson’s formula and the palpation method. Ethiopian Medical Jour 37–46 () Google ScholarCited by: 1.

The need for a quick and easy method for estimating fetal weight in utero has been clearly established. Estimates by abdominal palpation and fetal hormone production have proved to be of limited value. Eight-five patients, ranging from 17 to 41 weeks' gestation, were .

The use of multiple ultrasonographic examinations in predicting birth weight was examined by Hedriana and Moore. 23 That study revealed a slight improvement in birth weight prediction if the average of fetal weight percentiles of serial third-trimester observations was used, particularly in the fetuses with abnormal growth. Knowledge of fetal weight in utero is vital for the obstetrician in deciding whether or not to deliver the fetus as well as in fixing the mode of delivery. Both low birth weight and excessive fetal weight at delivery are associated with increased risk of newborn complications during labor and the puerperium. Various clinical formulae like Johnson’s formula & Dare’s formula are in use for Author: Darshit G Prajapati, Riddhi M Patel.

Our results show that birth weight is a logarithmic function of fetal body parameters and that the abdominal circumference has the single best correlation with the log 10 birth weight.

Our best linear regression with the use of two fetal dimensions (abdominal circumference and biparietal diameter) had a standard deviation of grams per kilogram fetal by: Abstract. In pregnant women, external abdominal measurements were correlated to the weight of the newborn child.

The product of girth and uterine height was more closely correlated to the infant weight than were any of these maternal variables alone or in other combinations, but the accuracy of this method was almost as low as of simple external by: Accuracy of clinical fetal weight estimation by Midwives Article (PDF Available) in BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth 17(1) December with 96 Reads How we measure 'reads'.

Comparison of abdominal palpation, Johnson's technique and ultrasound in the estimation of fetal weight in Northern Iran Article (PDF Available) in Midwifery 27(1) February with The technique is best for estimating fetal weight in the reference range birth weight of grams.

Several studies show that the accuracy of clinical palpation for estimating fetal weight below grams deteriorates markedly, with a mean absolute percentage error of?%. Abdominal Examination Page 2 of 6 Obstetrics & Midwifery Visual Inspection Note the abdominal size.

A full bladder, distended colon, or maternal obesity may effect estimation of fetal size.1 Observe the abdominal shape. An abdominal shape that is longer than it is wide indicates a longitudinal lie.

However, a shape that is low and. The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) recommends estimation of fetal weight by abdominal palpation. book a fetal abdominal circumference (AC) or estimated fetal weight (EFW) less than 10th centile can be used to diagnose a small for gestational age (SGA) fetus.

ACOG advises newborns whose birth weight is less than the 10th percentile for gestational age are considered. Centile lines The lines of growth on the customised growth chart are estimated fetal weight centile lines, 10 th, 50 th and 90 th.

The charts are very easy to produce and must be generated for women who book at any gestation that the clinician uses both hands to perform an abdominal palpation File Size: KB. Enter the gestational age in weeks and fetal measurements in mm to calculate percentiles.

This estimated fetal weight calculator will calculate percentiles as well as the estimated fetal weights based ultrasound data and on many published formulas, including those by Hadlock, Shepard, Woo, Shinozuka, Ott, Combs, Warsof, Campbell, and many others.

Fetal weight estimation methods have been discussed by various authors. Tactile assessment of foetal size Dare et al used this technique by multiplying the abdominal girth (cm) with symphysiofundal height (cm) and calculated the estimated foetal weight in grams (21).However, this is lessFile Size: KB.

Comparison of abdominal palpation, Johnson’s technique and ultrasound in the estimation of fetal weight in Northern Iran. A clinical estimation of the fetal weight by bimanual abdominal palpation (Leopold-Pavlik maneuver) was performed the midwife who was on duty (n  = 4).

Weight estimation was done when the patient was admitted to the hospital for delivery, with or without : Assaad Kesrouani, Chady Atallah, Ramzi AbouJaoude, Norma Assaf, Hanaa Khaled, Elie Attieh. Objective: To make a comparative evaluation of estimated fetal weight with actual birth weight by using: 1.

Aymphysiofundal height x abdominal girth (dares formulae) 2. Ultrasonography (hadlock formulae). Materials and Methods: A prospective comparative study was carried out at the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department and USG section of Department of Radiodiagnosis of Dr.

Fetal weight Ultrasound Palpation Johnson’s technique abstract Objectives: to assess the accuracy of abdominal palpation, Johnson’s technique and ultrasound in the estimation of fetal weight (EFW). Design, setting and participants: pregnant women were. Johnson's formula for estimation of foetal weight in vertex presentation is as follows: Foetal weight (g)=fH (cm)n × fH=fundal height and n=12 if vertex is above ischial spine or 11 if vertex is below ischial spine.

If a patient weighs more than 91 kg, 1 cm is subtracted from the fundal by: pregnant women were recruited at random in a large teaching hospital in Iran. Fetal weight was estimated by palpation and Johnson's technique at the time of admission by one qualified midwife, and then estimated by ultrasound by one radiologist.

After birth, all newborns were weighed Cited by: 5. tation, percussion, and palpation was taught. Measurement and palpation of the pregnant abdomen have been crucial for determining fundal height, lie, and presentation of the fetus, as well as gestational age and estimated fetal weight.

Every obstetrical visit included a measurement of the fundal height with a measuring tape (McDonald's rule).Author: David Peleg, Steven Warsof, Steven Warsof. Results were inconsistent and unreliable, with a frequent overestimation of fetal weight.

The formula derived by Woo et al. 29 (formulae 1b, 4g and 5e) produced the most inaccurate results, with a MPE ranging from % to %, and SD of % to %.

The most accurate results were produced by the Hadlock B formula (formulae 2d, 3b, 4f, 5c and 6b); such formula was assessed in Cited by:   The accuracy within 10% of actual birth weights was % and 72% for both clinical estimation of fetal weight and ultrasound, respectively, and the difference was not statistically significant (P = ).

The accuracy of fetal weight estimation using Dare's formula is comparable to ultrasound estimates for predicting birth weight at by: 5. Fetal weight estimation is of key importance in the decision-making process for obstetric planning and management.

The literature is inconsistent on the accuracy of measurements with either ultrasound or clinical examination, known as Leopold’s manoeuvres, shortly before by: 2.This study was undertaken to determine the accuracy of using Ultrasound (US) estimation of twin fetuses by use of Artificial Neural Network.

At First, as the training group, we performed US examinations on healthy singleton fetuses within 3 days of delivery. Three input variables were used to construct the ANN model: abdominal circumference (AC), ab-dominal diameter (AD), biparietal Cited by: 3.Abdominal circumference (AC) and estimated fetal weight (EFW) are the most accurate diagnostic measurements to predict SGA.
