By (author): Lawrence D. Longo

During the mid- to late-twentieth century, study of the physiology of the developing fetus and newborn infant evolved rapidly to become a major discipline in the biomedical sciences. Initially of interest from a standpoint of function of the placenta and oxygenation of the fetus, the field advanced to explore both normal functional mechanisms as well as pathophysiologic aspects of their regulation. Examples include studying the role and regulation of circulatory vascular anatomic shunts in oxygenation, cardiac function, certain aspects of asphyxia in the fetus and newborn infant, the role of fetal “breathing” movements, cyclic electroencephalographic activity, and analysis of electronic monitoring of fetal heart rate variability and its significance.

Included in this book are reminisces of several dozen individuals who played a vital role in these developments. Overall, this survey considers a number of aspects of the development of the science of fetal and neonatal physiology, and its role in the greatly improved care of pregnant women and their newborn infants.

This book is published on behalf of the American Physiological Society by Springer. Access to APS books published with Springer is free to APS members.

The American Physiological Society (APS) is a nonprofit devoted to fostering education, scientific
research, and dissemination of information in the physiological sciences. The Society was founded
in 1887 with 28 members. APS now has over 10,500 members. Most members have doctoral
degrees in physiology and/or medicine (or other health professions).
APS is a member of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), a
coalition of 26 independent societies that plays an active role in lobbying for the interests of biomedical scientists.
APS publishes three book series, now in partnership with Springer: Physiology in Health and
Disease (formerly Clinical Physiology), Methods in Physiology, and Perspectives in Physiology
(formerly People and Ideas), as well as general titles.
Perspectives in Physiology
This popular series seeks to place biomedical science inside a historical framework by describing
the development of a field and highlighting the contributions of prominent investigators. Published
books include Moving Questions: A History of Membrane Transport and Bioenergetics and
Exercise Physiology: People and Ideas.
Methods in Physiology
This series describes experimental techniques in cellular, molecular or general physiology. Each
book is edited by experts in the field and covers theory and history behind the method, critical
commentary, major applications with examples, limitations and extensions of each technique, and
vital future directions. Previous books in this series include Molecular Imaging FRET Microscopy
and Spectroscopy and Methods in Cellular Imaging
