Abstract

The fetal heart rate pattern of a dying fetus due to tightening of a true knot of cord is presented. Sinusoidal pattern was electronically recorded along with bradycardia-tachycardia. The importance of the sinusoidal pattern is discussed. It seems to imply fetal compromise if observed together with other signs of moderate fetal distress.
