• In certain high-risk conditions, testing can start as early as 28 weeks. The implications of a non-reassuring test are unclear before 28 weeks.
• When the condition causing the test persists, a reassuring («reactive») test may be repeated periodically until delivery. An interval of 7 days between tests is considered adequate in the presence of reassuring («reactive») results. This will give 8 false negatives/1000 tests. With certain maternal complications, a shorter interval may be considered.
