Merei Zhakanova Extra credit Write a report on fetus surgeries, including potential (nonexisting) applications. Until the last few decades there were only few possibilities available for the parents in case fetus has been diagnosed with a congenital malformation. They include the following: termination of pregnancy, change in mode, timing or place of delivery and continuation of pregnancy till term with vaginal of Cesarean delivery. Nevertheless, new options have appeared recently, comprising fetal therapy by non-operative methods and fetal surgical intervention. Open fetal surgery has effectively treated a great number of congenital malformations, which have morbid or life-threatening consequences, such as urinary tract obstruction, congenital
It affects premature infants because their lungs not fully develop and the lungs don’t have an insufficient surfactant. The surfactant is a complex phospholipid+ protein secreted by type 2 cell. It reduces surface the tension of alveolus. It keeps the alveoli open and prevents a collapse of the alveoli. When the surfactant is inadequate the alveoli will collapse, lung expansion will become more difficult ( compliance).
There are also emergency C sections - ones that are definitely needed. If the infant’s heart rate seems suspicious during the delivery, the doctors will think that the baby cannot last during labor for so long and perform a C section for safety. Another situation is that if the umbilical cord gets out the cervix first; this means that the baby might not have enough oxygen to be delivered through vaginal birth. If the woman has had a C section already, she should get C section for her new birth because her previous scar might open up during vaginal delivery. C section is also used if the woman has had a surgery on her uterus (1).
Abstract- Ultrasound is one of the most popular medical imaging technologies that can help a physician evaluate, diagnose and treat medical conditions. Although ultrasound imaging is generally considered good medical tool but the overall detection rate of Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) using ultrasound image remain anomic. Congenital Heart Defects are the heart problem that occurs before birth. Recognizing Congenital Heart Defects at right time is a difficult task for Physicians due to lack of subject specialists or inexperience with the previous cases or even as the children they can’t express their problem in a proper way. In order to improve the diagnosis accuracy and to reduce the diagnosis time, it has become a demanding issue
Chlorhexidine has been proven to prevent surgical site infections when used as directed but many patients do not complete the three-day regimen. Patients complain of skin irritation that range from mild to severe. Change Model Overview The Star Model of Knowledge Transformation formally known as the ACE Star Model, is a model used in evidence-based practice (EBP) processes and approaches. This model is used for discerning the cycles, nature, and characteristics
If his procedure would have been done first then there would be no need for Andrea to have undergone two procedures. This surgery will require general anesthesia and an open abdominal incision and several days in the hospital. Without it Andrea’s urinary system would never be functioning properly and she will continue suffering from reflux and most likely contract several infections. Her antibiotic treatment should continue just to make sure that her risk for infection is lowered. Since she is young her body is not well developed to fight back against against an infection while she is in recovery from
Although the disorders beneath this condition aren't completely inherited, they might have a small family inheritance. You won't locate this disorder in the healthcare books. It's a disorder of the intestines where the large intestine doesn't function adequately. This form of syndrome is a life threatening and has to be treated appropriately. The reason for the syndrome is unknown, but researchers think that disruption of the development of the fetus leads to the problems to develop.
For these reasons, newly hired nurses who have less than 1-2 years’ experience in obstetrics nursing could benefit from a high-risk OB class that incorporates topics including postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) to assist in earlier recognition, response, and ultimately improved patient care. According to the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses [AWHONN] (2015), OB hemorrhage is the leading cause of maternal mortality and major cause of morbidity. Additionally, 54-93% of maternal hemorrhage-related deaths could have been prevented with better clinical response (AWHONN, 2015). Healthy People 2020 identified a goal to decrease maternal deaths from 12.7 deaths per 100,000 live
The ultimate goal of treatment of cardiovascular disease is to restore normal heart structure and function. Cardiac transplantation is a treatment option for patients with progressive Cardiac Heart Failure (CSF) or certain cardiac diseases that are not amenable to conventional medical- surgical therapy. Patients who cannot meet developmental milestones or who have unacceptable quality of life issues may benefit from cardiac transplant surgery. However, approximately one in four patients die while waiting for an organ donor. Those patients who receive a donor heart must take lifelong immunosuppression medications to prevent rejection.
Congestive Heart Failure Heart failure, also known as congestive heart failure, occurs when the heart no longer pumps blood as it should. With heart failure, the blood moves through the heart and the body at a slower rate. When this happens, the heart's pressure increases, and the heart could no longer pump oxygen and nutrients that the body needs. To avoid further damage, heart failure must be treated immediately. In line with this assertion, this paper will discuss the objective data, current treatments, diagnosis, social history, medical history, diagnostic studies, care plan, and client teaching of congestive heart failure.
