therapeutic abortion intentional loss of pregnancy before 20 weeks
ectopic pregnancy development of fetus outside uterus
hydatidiform mole chorionic villi abnormally increase and develop vesicles resembling grapes
placenta previa placement attachment in lower uterine section
incompetent cervix failure of cervix to remain closed until fetus mature
abruptio placentae premature separation of the normally implanted placenta
What is the primary risk from hyperemesis gravidarum fetal growth restriction (aka fetal growth retardation) and dehydration
what is the most common cause of bleeding in early pregnancy? spontaneous abortion
an ectopic pregnancy usually occurs in the? fallopian tube
priority nursing assessment for a patient with an ectopic pregnancy if monitoring for? hypovolemic shock
why is long term follow up are important for a patient with a hydatidiform mole? may cause hemorrhage, Hypertension, clotting abnormalities, or cancer (choriocarcinoma)
threatened abortion vaginal bleeding without dilation of cervix or passed tissue
inevitable abortion bleeding and cramping with cervical dilation but no tissue passed
incomplete abortion bleeding and cramping with passage of some tissue
complete abortion passage of all products of conception
missed abortion fetus dies in uterus in first part of pregnancy but expelled later
recurrent abortion two or more consecutive spontaneous abortions
three types of placenta previa Marginal - placenta reaches the edge of cervical opening Partial - placenta partly covers the cervical opening Total - placenta completely covers the cervical opening
symptoms of placenta previa bright red/painless vaginal bleeding fetus may be in abmormal position (breech or transverse) fetus may have anemia or hypovolemic shock fetal hypoxia
abruptio placentae types partial or total marginal (separating at edges) central (separating in middle)
symptoms associated with abruptio placentae concealed bleeding with abdominal or low back pain, dark red vaginal bleeding, uterus tender and board like d/t blood in muscle, uterine cramps DIC (disseminated intervascular clotting)
what is PIH pregnancy induced hypertension
two types of PIH Preeclampsia = hypertension with proteinuria and edema Eclampsia = convulsions occur

what is the antidote for magnesium sulfate calcium gluconate
what is the importance of BPP (aka Biophysical profile) identify reduced fetal oxygenation in conditions associated with poor placental function. As fetal hypoxia gradually increases, FHR changes occur first, followed by cessation of fetal breathing movement, gross body movement and finally loss of fetal tone.
when can Rh blood incompatibility occur when RH negative mother births an RH positive baby
the drug given to prevent Rh incompatibility is RhoGAM which is administered at 28 weeks, and with in 72 hrs after birth of Rh positive infant or abortion
