THIRD TRIMESTER CAUSES OF BLEEDING ✔ AMNIOTOMY: artificial rupture of bag of water

1. PLACENTAL PREVIA abnormal low implantation of the placenta ○ Causing fetal head to descent
- low implantation of the placenta so that it overlays affecting mech., pressure @
some/all of the internal cervical OS placental site ctrl of bleeding
Incidence: “ most common cause of bleeding @ 3rdtrimester” ✔ DOUBLE SETUP: I/E in suspected placental previa
Predisposing factors: (DIMM)  2 setups
○ Multiparity-single most impt factor ✔ DELIVERY: vaginal or CS if placental placement
○ Decreased vascularity of upper uterine segment d/t prevents vaginal delivery and if the conditions for
tumor or narrowing watchful waiting are absent
○ Increased age above 35 y/o ✔ HOME MNGT:
○ Multiple Pz *Monitor fetal well-being
TYPE 1 & 2= home mngt
Type 3 & 4= hosp for continuous

Placenta lies over the margins of os • Bed & Px’ position: left side lying
TYPE 3 : PARTIAL R: to prevent pressure in the vena cava
Placenta partially covers the os • Assessment(FOBV)
TYPE 4 : COMPLETE/TOTAL Fetal well being

• intermittent pain 2nd to uterine contractions • Don’t perform I/E or V/E R: it will increase bleeding
• Prepare for UTZ to detect placental site
UTZ –95% accuracy
• Institute shock measures prn
Detects site of placenta
○ Bleeding is rarely severe life-threatening but
may become profuse with I/E
✔ watchful waiting/ expectant mngt/conservative if:
*mother is not in labor • Psychologic and phys. Comfort
*fetus is STABLE; no distress, premature • Conservative mngt = double setup/ CS
*bleeding is not severe Classical CS performed bcoz of LUS is
occupied by placenta
• Observe for bleeding after delivery
2. ABRUPTIO PLACENTA – premature partial/complete separation of the LUS, the site of placental detachment = not
contractile as U.fundal portion

*neonatal sepsis
✔ Metabolic rate in Pzcausing # of Islets of Langerhans  insulin production but rendered ineffective by
OF PZ antagonists” (HPL/HCS)
✔ Activity of the APG  tolerance for sugar
✔ BMR and Co2 combining power raise the tendency of acidosis
, metabolic disorder characterized by a deficiency of insulin production by
✔ Vomiting during pz= CHON intake = ACIDOSIS
Pancreas’ islets of langerhans resulting to improper metabolic interaction of
carbohydrates, Muscular
✔ Fats, activity

✔ Hypoglycemia is common
 hyperglycemia due to lack or inadequate insulin In puerperium as involution and lactation occur.
 caused by ✔ If pancreas

envi and respond by producing more insulin, glucose crosses the placenta to the fetus where fetal
insulin metabolizes it and by resembling the growth hormone, causing MACROSOMIA
INCIDENCE: concurrent dseOFin PzPREGNANCY IN DM@ pz
or have its onset
• DM is more difficult to control = difficult to maintain blood sugar
○ Family HX
• Insulin shock and ketaacidosis
○ Rapid hormonal change in Pz
• N-V are predispose to keta-acidosis
○ Tumor/infection of the pancreas –produces insufficient insulin
• Insulin requirements:
○ Obesity
○ Stress ○ 1st 3mos: stable
CLASSIFICATIONS OF D.M.  Insulin may not be
Type 1 – “juvenile-onset”or Dose
“insulin may drop in 1st trimester
– Occurs below 2 3mos:
40 y/o rapid
starts @ youth
Type 2 – “maturity-onset”
3 3mos: or “non-insulin
rapid dependent”
– after 40 y/o Postpartum :rapid to prepregnant level
Type 3 - “GESTATIONAL D.M.” Need insulin in the first 24h AC delivery
- onset during pz and ends after termination of pz
-however she becomes DIABETIC after Pregnancy

Hypoglycemics are c/I in Pz due to:

• secretion of pancreas @ GDM
• Normal 1. production but not

✔ Permanent/unequivocal cardiomegaly
v.Avoid constipation
✔ Severe dysrythmias
b. Proper nutrition
✔ Severe dyspnea prior to stage of pressure in the diaphragm
i. Sodium, adequate protein, h2O, fruits and veggies
Signs of cardiac decompensation:
ii. Fats & CHON
Moist cough
iii.Well balanced diet
Pedal edema – signs of pulmo edema
c. Frequent prenatal visit
Dyspnea w/ minimal act
d. Early hospitalization – pz puts more stress on the cardio system, mother needs more
rest b4 labor

i. Prepare for regional anesthesia PIH POST PARTAL HEMORRHAGE
ii. Administer drugs as ordered,: HEART FAILURE
a. Digitalis, INFECTION
b. Diuretics S/SX :
c. Antibiotics OBJ: pale skin and mucus lining
d. Oxytocin production Pearly-white sclera
PROVIDE POSTPARTAL CARE Brittle, flattened nails
Cardiac failure/ decompensation is likely to occur the postpartal periodAltered V/S rise in Systolic pressure c/ widened pulse pressure
Because of the ff factors: Tachycardia
1. Loss of placental circulation 30-50% blood volume is reabsorbedTachypnea
2. Normal dieresis circulating blood volume SUBJ:
3. Rapid in intraabdominal pressure ff delivery resulting to vasocongestion
andrapid @ C.O. Shortness of breath on exercise, headache, anorexia,
POSTPARTAL CARE Menorrhagia, heartburn, flatulence
