dilatation & effacement
“19-year-old Caucasian Gravida 1 Para 0 at 39 4/7 weeks presents to L&D reporting painful contractions every 5 minutes for the past 3 hours and blood-tinged mucus from the vagina. Her baby is active and she denies any loss of fluid. Her pregnancy has been uncomplicated except she is Group B strep positive. She desires an epidural for labor.”
“Maternal VS are stable,she is afebrile. Fetal heart tones are in the 120s and reactive.
“Contractions are showing on the monitor every 7 minutes . Her cervix is 4-5 centimeters dilated, 100% effaced, with the fetal vertex at -1 station and a bulging bag of water.
“Assessment is 19 yo at term in labor who is GBS + and requests an epid. Fetal and maternal assessment is reassuring.”
“My plan would be to admit her to L&D, continue routine monitoring, get routine labs, start an IV, start penicillin for Group B strep prophylaxis, and notify Anesthesia for placement of an epidural.”
cervix is not dilated, not effaced = NOT IN LABOR
1st stage of labor- regular contractions, cervix dilates
1st stage continues: cervix is 8 cms dilated, 100% effaced = ACTIVE LABOR
fully dilated, fully effaced, fetus in birth canal = SECOND STAGE LABOR
BIRTH OF THE HEAD
breast or bottle feeding?
urination / defecation
heart & lungs
- for example, wound drainage
laboratory and imaging testing
(Assessment and Plan should be separate)
- Read background history on that patient, review ultrasounds, pathology, etc.
- Read about that particular surgery
- Introduce yourself in pre-op before surgery
- Assist with moving/positioning of the patient
- Introduce yourself to OR staff, offer to get your own gloves
- Visit the patient after the case, read the op note dictation, and review the pathology findings
By the end of the Gynecology block students will be expected to competently1) Write a complete operative note and postoperative orders2) Discuss the normal hospital course after a routine Gyn surgical procedure3) Discuss the appropriate work-up and differential for postoperative low urine output, fever, and wound problems4) Discuss the relevant history, examination, and laboratory or radiology work-up involved in ER assessments of 1) pelvic pain and 2) abnormal vaginal bleeding5) Briefly describe the differences between types of hysterectomies (supracervical, simple, radical, vaginal, laparoscopic)
- You are not alone- many physicians do not feel comfortable with pelvic exams
- Today is the practice pelvic exam session
- We expect you to become more familiar with the mechanics of the exam and how to appropriately talk to your patient during the exam- all exams should be supervised
- It takes a lot of practice to do them well.
- Advanced Colposcopy (abnormal pap smear work-up and management)
- Blackboard questions
your schedule is an outline - be available if opportunities to learn come up
