Example text

The canalicular stage (17–27 weeks) sees the appearance of vascular channels or capillaries, which begin to approximate the potential air spaces and form a capillary network around them. By the end of this stage of development the potential air–blood barrier is thin enough to support gaseous exchange. At the beginning of the saccular stage (26 weeks to birth) the terminal structures, saccules, are relatively smooth-walled and cylindrical. Between about 28 and 36 weeks’ gestation there is continued expansion of potential air spaces, a marked decrease in interstitial tissue and development of narrower and more compact layers of lining cells.

Maternal calcium absorption and transport along with the accretion in maternal bones are enhanced in the first two trimesters. From 30 weeks’ gestation, calcium resorption from maternal bone is significantly increased, presumably to meet the calcium needs of the growing fetus. 2). 4 Placental glucose transport Fetal growth and development is dependent on an adequate supply of nutrients from the mother, in particular glucose, which is the primary energy source for the fetus. Transport of glucose across the human placenta occurs by facilitated diffusion, meaning that it goes down the concentration gradient from mother to fetus.
