All around hospitals you see where signs are up that have step by step procedures, hand washing reminders, and the list goes on; although finding studied evidence that these visual aids work was difficult to find. For this review, an article was chosen that analyzed predictors of healthcare provider stethoscope disinfection and its impact on infection control in the pediatric population. An anonymous survey was sent out and a topic that was explored was barriers to disinfections. Most believed that stethoscopes had the ability to spread infections, but nevertheless, very little healthcare providers indicated that they disinfected their stethoscope after every use.

The enlargement is due to the proliferating trophoblastic tissue and the large amounts of clotted blood (Davidson et al., 2012 p. 378). “Absence of fetal sounds in the presence of other signs of pregnancy is another classic sign of molar pregnancy” (Davidson et al., 2012 p. 378). Because of the continued secretion of the trophoblastic tissue, the hCG levels will be elevated. As a result of the elevated hCG levels Hyperemesis gravidarum may occur.
