There is now evidence that the fetus adapts to changing conditions, whether internal or external, and that these changes have a profound effect in later life. This evidence of fetal adaptation, however, remains controversial; the conflict arising, at least in part, from a lack of knowledge of fetal pathophysiology. This book draws together the findings of a wealth of distinguished experts in the field of fetal physiology and obstetrics, discussing the physiological mechanisms for fetal adaptation and growth and offering a fascinating insight into the real world of the fetus. Topics covered include current research on fetal baro- and chemo-reflexes, fetal cardiac output, vibroacoustic stimulation, immunological autonomy, hormonal adaptation and fetal behavioral states, among many other issues.
