Cardiac output increases in pregnancy related to Increased stroke volume in 1st 1/2 of pregnancy and increase in stroke volume and HR in 2nd 1/2 of pregnancy (actually SVR also = HR x SVR)
Does SVR increase or decrease during pregnancy Decreases

In the late 3rd trimester what happens with RBCs and blood plasma RBCs continue to increase while plasma starts to decrease
Hemaglobin concentration should remain above what % in mom 12 g%
Since RBCs #s are increasing rapidly, are they microcytic or macrocytic Macrocytic because of O2 demand("increasing" has nothing to do with it)

Name the 2 components of the phenomenon of "Aortocaval Compression" 1)Inferior vena cava compression (after 24 wks causes alternative circulation (= Azygos vein/Paravertebral system) and Compensatory increase in sympathetic tone and HR) and 2) Second component includes: Aortoiliac obstruction, Arterial side compression..
The second component of "Aortocaval Compression" include (congradulations if "1st and 2nd Components" make sence to you) Aortiliac obstruction, Arterial side compression, No maternal symptoms, Placental blood flow decreases, and femoral flow vs brachial flow (?)

In pregnancy is fibrinolysis increased or decreased It is enhanced
Mendelson's Syndrome is also called Pulmonary Aspiration Pneumonitis
Mendelson's Recommendations (regarding aspiration - 5 of them) Witholding food during labor (holding on to fork and knife during contractions not wise), Greater use of regional anesthesia, Administration of antacids, Emptying of stomach prior to general anesthesia, competent general anesthesia administration
Shirley/Roberts defined what risk greater than 25 ml (or 0.4ml/kg) with pH less than 2.5 in the stomach at delivery (and stop calling me Shirley)
In 1980 when Roberts offered Shirley an antacid with particulates what was her responce Shirley told Roberts that not good, she wanted Bicitra (no particulates) and that he needed Binaca

What are the two most important risk factor related to aspiration after 8 wks gestation Delayed gastric emptying (increased gastric content)and increased acidity (lower pH)
What extrogenous nursing actions contribute to delayed gastric emptying Giving narcotics (decreasing peristalsis)
Does pain decrease gastric emptying Yes
Why can't an anatomical displaced, 8 wk gestational lower esophagus pass the CRNA board exam It's Incompetent

How much more does a pregnant uterus weigh over a nonpregnant uterus Almost 20 times as much (1100g vs 70g)
The ovarian, uterine, and vaginal arteries all come from what artery Hypogastric artery
What artery does the ovarian artey directly branch off of The uterine artery (the uterine artey comes directly off of the hypogastric artery)
What 2 arteries precede the Azygos artery Uterine artery than hypogastric artery
In the "steal" phenomenon, what artery has a decrease blood flow in in turns increases the blood flow of the uterine and common iliac arteries External iliac artery is being stolen from
Factors that decrease uterine blood flow (5 of them) Uterine contractions, hypertonus, hypotension, hypertension, vasoconstriction (endogenous and exogenous - most sympathomimetics alpha adrenergic)
Does ephedrine constrict uterine arteries Not in the pregnant uterus, but yes in the non-pregnant uterous (pregnancy releases a uterine artery vasodilator)
What is the mechanism that prevents ephedrine from constricting uterine arteries Estrogen produces the endothelium's ability to synthesize the vasodilator nitric oxide (this does not take place in the peripheral vessels)
A lower pH in the fetus after using ephedrine and not phenylephrin is because of Phenylephrine is only alpha, ephedrine is alpha and beta - beta increases metabolism (increase HR and contraction)
Name the cavities and tissue layers from the fetus to the outer wall of the uterus Amniotic cavity, Amnion, Placenta, Chorion, Uterine cavity,Lining of the uterus (endometrium), and Muscle layer of the uterine wall
Name three major functions of the placenta Produces hormones to sustain pregnancy, protects the fetus from the maternal immune system, allows for active and passive transport of nutrients and metabolites
Name four types fo transport mechanisms through a membrane Passive, active, Facilitated and pinocytosis
