Evaluation of amniotic fluid shake test and L/S ratio was done on 98 patients in the third trimester of pregnancy to predict fetal pulmonary maturity. The shake test proved to be a useful tool in assessment of fetal pulmonary maturity. The L/S ratio, although mostly corroborative with the clinical picture of the babies, sometimes shows higher or lower levels than expected, depending on the clinical condition of the mother.
