Objectives : Biophysical profile (BPP) is a method to check fetal health. The purpose of this paper was comparison of the effect of caffeine and acoustic stimulation with no intervention on fetal BPP duration and score.

Materials and Methods  : This study was a randomized clinical trial. A total of 150 women referred to Tabriz Al-Zahra Hospital were divided randomly into three groups of 50;group I (control)without intervention; group II (caffeine-recipient) took caffeine before the procedure; and group III (acoustic stimulation) received acoustic stimulation during the procedure using a reflex hammer.

Results: Results suggested that both fetal BPP duration and fetal profile score were significantly different across the three groups. The fetal BPP duration was significantly shorter in the caffeine-receiving group (p=0.00), and fetal profile scores in the same group were significantly higher (p=0.00).

Conclusion: Using caffeine-containing drink before performing biophysical profile tests resulted in shorter test duration and higher results of test.
