The Authors examined perinatal outcome and presence of accelerations in cardiotocographic records in a group of patients showing meconium staining of amniotic fluid in labor, in comparison with the data of a control group. The first group showed an average Apgar between 1' and 5' and an average number of accelerations every 30' significantly lower than those of the control group. Moreover the study of accelerations confirmed that an average of more than 5 accelerations every 30' is a clear indicator of fetal well-being.
