    A simple high-risk pregnancy management protocol is presented. Three basic quantitative tests of fetal-placental function are utilized. The advantages and proper application and interpretation of these laboratory tools are discussed. Perinatal outcome is analyzed in the initial 225 high-risk pregnancies managed according to the protocol. Over 94 per cent of the infants achieved 5 minute Apgar scores of 8 or above. The corrected perinatal mortality rate was only 8.8 per 1,000 live births.
