4. Considering Marie's history, which postpartal complication is she most at risk for? A) Deep vein thrombosis. Feedback: INCORRECT Venous thrombosis forms in response to inflammation in the vein wall as a result of venous stasis. Factors contributing to the development of deep vein thrombosis in the postpartum client include increased amounts of certain blood clotting factors, obesity, increased maternal age, high parity, prolonged inactivity, anemia, heart disease, and varicosities. Marie's history does not indicate any risk factors for deep vein thrombosis.
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a disorder that occurs when a blood clot forms in a vein that is deep inside the body. It is mainly associated with veins in the legs, usually in the lower leg and thigh, but may occur in other parts of the body. About half
Diagnosis and Assessment The principal mode of diagnosis is a differential diagnosis, and it includes a plethora of facets; bleeding from implantation site, which may be due to uterine atony, with predisposing factors such as infections, and retained placenta or abnormal placentation (Sheiner, 2011). Coagulation disorders and trauma are also essential facets considered during diagnosis (Sheiner, 2011). Conventionally, there are different methods used for the estimation of blood loss during diagnosis, and they are majorly classified as clinical and quantitative methods (Ricci & Kyle, 2009). Clinical method remains the primary means to
c. An ischemic stroke is typically caused by a thrombosis, which is a blood clot or an embolism, when the blood clot detaches and infiltrates the blood stream.
Varicose veins might show up during the third trimester of pregnancy. Adequate rest and putting up your feet as frequently as possible can help in reducing varicose veins. The condition is largely believed to be genetic. If your mother or grandmother experienced varicose veins during their pregnancies, then you have a higher chance of encountering varicose veins during your pregnancy.
Collection of Blood Cultures Tracy Evidence Based Practice for The Baccalaureate Prepared Nurse Abstract Proper collection of blood cultures are necessary and the most direct method of determining whether or not a patient is septic. The purpose of obtaining blood cultures is to identify and isolate the bacteria that are causing an illness and then determine the best course of treatment based on the sensitivity of the bacteria to particular antibiotics. One of the most frustrating problems plaguing hospitals is the increased rate at which blood culture results are being returned as contaminated specimens. These results can lead to a significant increase in cost to the hospital and patient as well as an increased length in hospital
DVT in Pregnancy: Prevention, Treatment, Symptoms, and More DVT (deep vein thrombosis) is a blood clot that develops in the leg, thigh or pelvis. Although it is not common during pregnancy (only 1-2 pregnant women out of 1,000 experience it), pregnant women are 5 times more likely to have DVT than
A DVT is a thrombus or blood clot that most commonly occurs in deep veins in the leg or pelvis. DVTs usually start distally in the veins of
There are two main types of PPIS which are defined as Arterial Presumed Perinatal Stroke (APPS) which “are due to an occlusion of a brain artery” (University of Calgary, 2017) and Periventricular Venous Infarction (PVI) that are strictly fetal strokes where “Bleeding of the germinal matrix is the primary problem” (University of Calgary, 2017). Presumed Perinatal Ischemic Strokes are so named because they occur between the middle of a mother’s second trimester into the first year of life of the child and are diagnosed after the stroke has occurred, usually later in the development of the patient. Several things can lead to perinatal ischemic strokes and each patient is different depending on surrounding circumstances as well as personal environments. However, one of the most common causes of a perinatal ischemic stroke is a blood clot forming in the heart and traveling to the brain which resulting in hypoxia. This can be a result of congenital heart problems like abnormal valves, infections, or diseases. One such disease is called sickle cell which is results in the red blood cells not carrying enough oxygen to the brain causing a stroke to occur. PPIS can also be caused by any trauma that injures the large arteries and results in a loss of
CLINICAL OVERVIEW TEMPLATE (Deep Vein Thrombosis) TERMINOLOGY CLINICAL CLARIFICATION o Deep vein thrombosis is a type of venous thromboembolism that usually occurs in the legs. 1 o DVT is associated with an increased risk for pulmonary embolism when above the knee (popliteal vein and above) 1 o Often presents with unilateral leg swelling, redness, or pain
The syndrome is characterized by super infection with Fusobacterium necrophorum, jugular vein thrombosis and septic emboli. Healthy young adults are at a higher risk for this infection and have a significant mortality rate. Infection spread locally by breakdown of mucosal barrier at pharyngeal and para pharyngeal space and extend to carotid sheath. This will lead to formation of septic thrombophlebitis in internal jugular vein and cause distant septic emboli. Early antibiotic with anerobic coverage would prevent significant morbidity but duration of antibiotic therapy is not clearly
Sara is a 40yo, G9 P5035, who was seen for an ultrasound evaluation and consultation for AMA. She overall denies any major-medical disorders. She does have a history of 8 other pregnancies; 5 of which were term uncomplicated deliveries. She has had 3 spontaneous pregnancy losses but they have been scattered in between her 5 term deliveries. She therefore is grand multiparous and would be at an increased risk for postpartum hemorrhage. Overall currently at this time she has no complaints.
A Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT) will propagate when there is either stasis of blood flow, endothelial injury, or if the patient is in a hypercoagulable state. Under physiological conditions, a dislodged DVT can predictably settle in the pulmonary arteries causing a pulmonary embolism. However, a DVT in the presence of
Deep Vein Thrombosis in Adolescents Deep Vein Thrombosis, often referred to as DVT, is the formation of a solid blood clot in a vein or artery, similar to a normal blood clot, which occurs due to external injury or skin abrasion near the surface of the skin. There are significantly greater risk factors with a DVT than an external clot as the internal clot can stop the flow of blood to organs and extremities. Severe cases can cause clots to break off and travel through the blood stream to the heart, lungs or brain where it can cause permanent damage or death. “The diagnosis of DVT in children is complicated by the widely diverse locations in which clots occur, the small size of the patients, the variety of underlying disorders, and the lack
Response for Tanisha, I enjoyed reading your informative post. There are several risk factors that predispose anyone to develop DVT/PE such as age, obesity, infection, immobilization, hormone therapy, tobacco use, pregnancy, air travel, hospitalization and surgery in particular. As you well articulated in your post , the 44-year-old African American male patient had surgical procedure which is obviously one of the risk factor to developing DVT/ PE and having a cancer tumor makes the tendency of blood clot even worse. The other important risk factor that you haven't mentioned in your post is that for reasons that are not unknown, DVT/ PE disproportionately affect African American "African American men and women have a 30% higher chance
