What are recurrent late decelerations?

Researching TOL for VBAC vs Elective Repeat Cesarean.

Learned that recurrent late decelerations may be an early sign of an impending uterine rupture.

What are recurrent late decelerations?

Are there other signs of an impending (not a partial or complete) uterine rupture?

Thank you.

  • This is really a question for your doctor.
    But here is an excerpt from a website. It would appear it means a heartbeat that slows significantly.

    Timothy P. Canavan, MD, Lancaster, Pa--We define fetal distress as a deceleration of the fetal heart rate to 60 bpm for >2 minutes, unresponsive to medical management such as a change in maternal position, O2, or intravenous fluids, in the face of a medically compromised fetus or abnormal labor; or a deceleration =60 bpm for greater than 5 minutes, unresponsive to medical management, in a normal fetus and normal labor.
