|Title:||Factors influencing fetal growth||Authors:||Mongelli, M.||Keywords:||Fetal growth restriction
|Issue Date:||May-2003||Citation:||Mongelli, M. (2003-05). Factors influencing fetal growth. Annals of the Academy of Medicine Singapore 32 (3) : 283-288. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Birth weight remains one of the most important measures we have of the health status of a population, and is a strong predictor of both neonatal mortality and morbidity. It reflects maternal nutritional status and fetal growth rates in the antenatal period. Although a large number of physiological and pathological variables can affect the growth rate, for most cases of growth-restricted fetuses a cause cannot be determined. Awareness of the physiological aspects of fetal growth is important in assessing whether the fetus is growing normally. This article is a review of recent findings and kev historical material on factors influencing birth weight.||Source Title:||Annals of the Academy of Medicine Singapore||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/131763||ISSN:||03044602|
