Study Notes

Childbirth and Pregnancy Complications

  • Evaluation of amniotic fluid with TACO: time, amount, color, odor; risk of infection if ruptured for over 24 hours
  • Cardinal movements: necessary adjustments of the fetus for birth process, including turning and shoulder delivery
  • Stages of labor: second (pushing), third (birth of baby to placenta), and fourth (placenta delivery to maternal stabilization)
  • Monitoring vital signs and post-procedure assessments after childbirth
  • Anesthesia options such as nitrous oxide for pain management during labor
  • Daily fetal movement count for monitoring fetal oxygenation
  • Diagnostic tests including ultrasound, MRI, and amniocentesis for fetal health assessment
  • Gestational diabetes: implications for fetus, risk factors, and potential complications
  • Infections related to increased glucose in urine and altered carbohydrate metabolism
  • Complications such as hydramnios (excess amniotic fluid) and ketoacidosis due to hyperglycemia
  • Risks and implications of macrosomia (excessive fetal growth) and neonatal hypoglycemia
  • Use of nonstress tests for fetal heart rate monitoring during contractions and assessment of fetal well-being
