Right breech presentation-if the fetal heart tones are heard in the right upper abdomen, the infant is in a breech presentation. if the infant is positioned in the right occipital anterior presentation, the fhts will be located in the right lower quadrant, so answer b is incorrect. if the fetus is in the sacral position, the fhts will be located in the center of the abdomen, so answer c is incorrect. if the fhts are heard in the left lower abdomen, the infant is most likely in the left occipital transverse position, making answer d incorrect.
