Beta 2 agonist

Used to relax the uterus in cases of uterine hypertonus or tachysystole (>5 contractions/10min)


What are non-reassuring fetal signs, and how should patient be managed?

Repetitive late decelerations, bradycardias, and loss of variability

Face mask O2, place on left side to relieve IVC


What are the three signs placental separation?

Cord lengthening, gush of blood, fundal rebound


What does posterior succenturiate lobe? put patients at risk for?

Vasa previa


What does sinusoidal pattern on continuous FHR monitoring suggest? What should be done?

Fetal anemia usually from vasa previa rupture

Emergent delivery


What are classic findings of uterine rupture?

Severe abdominal pains with loss of station of fetal head in actively laboring patient with history of C-section


What is the MoA of Mg in decreasing contractions? What are possible side effects?

Antagonizes calcium and stabilizes cell membranes

Flushing, diplopia, headache


What are associated with increased risk for breech presentation?

Fetal anomalies like anencephaly and hydrocephaly

Uterine anomalies like oligo and polyhydramnios


What are the initial steps in treating a patient presenting with eclampsia (seizing and HTN)?

1. ABCs
2. IV Mg
3. IV labetalol or hydralazine


HTN early in 2nd trimester?

Hydatidiform mole and previous chronic hypertension


What testing should be done in women over 30-65 with negative pap and HPV?

Next pap HPV in 5 years


What testing should be done in women over 30-65 with negative pap and HPV?

Next pap HPV in 5 years


How do you diagnose gestational hypertension?

elevated BPs (> 140/90 mm Hg) after 20 weeks’


What is the next most important step in management of a patient with HELLP?

This is a subtype of severe preeclampsia, must induce labor if at 32-34 weeks.


What is true gestational diabetes and how does it arise>?

impairment of carbohydrate metabolism that manifests during pregnancy

human placental lactogen act as anti-insulin agents leading to increased insulin resistance


What are signs and sx of intra amniotic infection, and what needs to be done? I

Fever, tender fundus, elevated WBC

Induction of labor if normal FHT


Contraindications to using Mg sulfate?

Myasthenia gravis


Side effects of terbutaline?

Tachycardia hypotension anxiety and chest pain


What are the karyotypes for a partial mole? Ultrasound finding?

Triploid 69 xxx(y)

Marked villi swelling


Which moles put patients at increased risk of GTD?

Complete moles


What are the signs of metastatic gestational trophoblastic disease and what should be done?

Elevated beta HCg, no evidence of IUP,

CT c/a/p


What is the appropriate of management of cord prolapse in a laboring patient?

Lift fetal head and perform emergent c section


What is the treatment for VIN 3?

Wide local excision


What should be done if patient has ASCUS but is negative for high risk HPV?

Resume normal screening, Pap again in 3 years


What is most concerning finding on colposcopy?

Disorderly blood vessels


What should be done for HSIL if nothing found on ECC?

Cervical conization


What should be done for patients presenting with positive ECC?

Cervical conization


What is Meigs syndrome?

Triad of ovarian tumor,ascites, and Right hydrothorax


What is the usual ratio of FSH/LH in primary ovarian failure and why?

>1 because both elevated but FSH cleared slower


What is the best management for patient at 42 weeks with favorable cervix and no contractions?

admit for induction


What is polyhydramnios with rapid decompression of intrauterine cavity put the patient at risk for?

placental abruption
