Late deceleration of FHR
BAD---looks like early deceleration, dip doesn't stop until contraction is over. uterol-plcental diffiency due to baby being stressed.
Variable deceleration of FHR
up, down, up, down pattern of FHR, cord compression, shut off oxytocin. C-section if FHR tones go down
First Stage of Labor
Dilation and effecement
onset of contraction, ends with complete cervical dilation
dilation of the cervix 4-7cm. more intent and INTENSE. too late to stop labor, able to recieve narcotic now
spinal anesthetic, just below the breasts on down for a C-section, cannot move legs or toes until it wears off, may have decreased sensation to bladder.
anesthetic on both sides of the cervix-makes pain and contractions go away, able to push tho
Used for crash c-section, baby's heart tones go down drastically (60's) baby is out immediately. <1min. medicine relaxes uterus, can reach in and pull placenta out
stimulation of contractions after spontaneously beginning but with unsatisfactory progress (dilation doesn't increase)
the umbilical cord drops (prolapses) through the open cervix into the vagina ahead of the baby.
