Baseline FHR

5

6

What is a physiological and mechanical process in which uterine muscles contract and retract rhythmically resulting in delivery of baby & placenta?

LABOR

7

What is a force (contraction) exerted on a movable object (baby) meeting resistance (cervix&pelvic floor) resulting in a gove (effacement, dilation and descent)?

LABOR

8

>Fetus undergoes changes in position (rotation)
>Purpose is to present smallest possible diameter of presenting part to irregular shape of pelvic canal
and to decrease resistance. This is called what?

The mechanism of Labor

9

What maternal factors trigger labor?

Secretion of hormones to stimulate contractions

10

What fetal factors trigger labor?

>Aging placenta
>Secretion of hormones by fetus

11

What are the 6 signs of impending labor?

>Lightening = Baby drops
>Braxton-Hicks Contraction
>Cervical softening or "ripening"
>Weight loss and/or GI disturbances
>Burst of Energy

YES YOU CAN!

13

What are the 4 S&S of TRUE LABOR?

>Uterine contractions which are regular, become more frequent and intense
>Cervical changes
>Bloody show (loss of muscous plug)
>Rupture of membranes (may occur before labor begins or during labor

NOO NOT AT ALL!!

What is PROM?

Premature Rupture of Membranes

16

Cephelopelvic disproportion (CPD)

21

What's another word for the "Position" of the baby?

Attitude

22

What is the normal attitude (position) for the passenger?

Norm=flexed:head toward the chest, arms and legs flexed over thorax, back curved in "C"

23

Baby is laying on pelvis with but up and elbow pointing toward pelvis is called what?

Malpresentation

24

Presentation, part that enters the pelvis first is called what?

Fetal position

25

What are the 2 primary lies for fetal position?

Longitudinal Lie
Transverse Lie

26

The longitudinal lie has what two ways? what is the percentage of each?

Cephalic -96-97%
Breech 3-4%

27

The transverse lie consists of what? & percentage?

Shoulder <1%

28

Why should the head come out 1st?

Because it's the largest part of the body and it helps to stretch out the CERVIX.

29

If the baby is looking at the floor when delivered, what cephalic presentation is this?

Anterior

30

If the baby is looking up what cephalic presentation is it?

Posterior
