Fetal doppler

Fetal doppler

  • Model: Fetal doppler

A fetal doppler, also known simply as a “doppler,” is a handheld ultrasound device used to detect and listen to the fetal heartbeat during pregnancy. It’s similar to an ultrasound, but instead of creating images, it translates the movement of the heart into sound.

Features and Uses of a Fetal Doppler:

1. Audio Output: Most fetal dopplers have built-in speakers that allow you to hear the heartbeat. Some also come with headphone jacks for private listening or even recording options to save the heartbeat sound.

2. Display: Many modern dopplers have LCDs that show the heart rate in beats per minute (BPM).

3. Portability: Being handheld devices, they are portable and often battery-operated, making them convenient for use both in clinical settings and at home.

4. Probe: The probe emits ultrasound waves, and when placed on the pregnant person’s abdomen, these waves move through the skin and tissue to the fetus. When these waves encounter movement, such as a fetal heartbeat, they bounce back and are processed by the doppler to produce sound.

5. Use in Clinical Settings: Healthcare professionals, especially midwives and obstetricians, use fetal dopplers during prenatal check-ups to ensure that the fetus’s heart is beating normally.

6. Home Use: There are over-the-counter versions available for expecting parents who wish to listen to their baby’s heartbeat at home. However, interpreting the sounds and not mistaking them for other sounds, such as the mother’s heartbeat or blood flow through the placenta, requires some skill and practice.
