Thanks for the query.

Fetal heart beat can show fluctuations during monitoring which is called accelerations of the heart beat.
During this the heart beat can increase to 15 to 20 beats above the baseline.
But it will not persist and comes to normal soon. So if the heart beat remains high continuously that can indicate fetal distress and may need active intervention.
Take care.
