      Acceleration after 32 weeks

  • 2. 
    In association with a uterine contraction, a visually apparent, gradual (onset to nadir 30 sec or more) decrease in FHR with return to baseline.Onset, nadir, and recovery of the deceleration occur after the beginning, peak, and end of the contraction, respectively.
