Abstract The accuracy of diagnosis by means of ultrasonic Doppler fetal actocardiogram in non-stress test (NST) was examined in 100 fetuses at 32 to 42 weeks of gestation. Fourteen fetuses were diagnosed as non-reactive by conventional NST which monitored fetal heart rate, but only 4 of the 14 fetuses were found to be "non-reactive" when the fetal actocardiogram was used. Thus the false positive rate obtained with conventional NST in judging the non-reactive pattern was 71.4\% (10/14). We next examined the outcome for 25 fetuses (including 20 IUGR cases) with a "non-reactive pattern" who were diagnosed by fetal actocardiogram. Fetal distress occurred in 19 of these fetuses (76.0\%), and mostly developed within 5 days after the diagnosis of "non-reactive pattern". The outcome for 20 IUGR fetuses with a "non-reactive pattern" was compared with that for fetuses with a "reactive pattern". IUGR fetuses which were "non-reactive" had a significantly higher fetal distress morbidity rate, and higher cesarean section rate. The sensitivity and specificity of the prediction of the development of fetal distress in IUGR fetuses with a "non-reactive pattern" were 81.0\% and 84.2\%, respectively. The present results strongly suggest the need to use the ultrasonic Doppler fetal actocardiogram at the time of NST after 32 weeks of gestation.
