    The question regarding the pregnant patient has an incorrect “correct” answer. A normal fetal heart rate baseline is 110 to 160 beats per minute. Meconium in the amniotic fluid (as indicated by the green colored fluid) is no longer thought to be indicative of “fetal distress” (also a very out dated term!). The normal FHR baseline and presence of meconium is much more indicative of a post term fetus than it is of a fetus indicating a “non reassuring fetal heart rate tracing.”
