Objectives: Biophysical profle (BPP) is a method to check fetal health. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of caffeine and acoustic stimulation on fetal BPP duration and score, and compare their results with control group with no intervention.
Materials and Methods: This randomized clinical trial was conducted on 150 women who had referred to Tabriz Al-Zahra hospital. The participants were divided randomly into three groups of 50; group I (control) without intervention; group II (caffeine-recipient) who had caffeine before the procedure; and group III (acoustic stimulation) who received acoustic stimulation during the procedure using a reﬂex hammer.
Results: Our results showed that both fetal BPP duration and fetal profle score were signifcantly different across the 3 groups. The fetal BPP duration was signifcantly shorter in the caffeine-receiving group (P=0.00), and fetal profle score in the same group was signifcantly higher (P=0.00).
Conclusions:Generally, using caffeine-containing drink before BPP tests may result in shorter test duration and higher test score.
