Examples of such policies are forcing pregnant woman to undergo invasive medical treatment that might prevent fetal harm or mandating cesarian
section in cases where vaginal birth would create substantial risk of harm to a newborn [146-163].
Our patient was born via an emergency cesarian
delivery, and she was intubated on the first attempt shortly after birth when she showed signs of bradycardia and respiratory distress.
She also knew that, similar to High Point, the staff at her hospital had to call in an operating room team for Cesarian
A recent study of neonatal outcomes after delivery at 23-28 weeks' gestation at 16 academic medical centers compared survival rates with or without prenatal steroids and with or without cesarian
Fatal complications after Cesarian
section in HIV-infected women.
Audit and Feedback to Implement Practice Guidelines: Delivery after Previous Cesarian
The result is that cesarian
section is seen to be the best kind of birth from a doctor's point of view.
Nurses rendering such care and treatment have a responsibility to notify attending physicians and other health care providers that a particular patient may he a potential candidate for a cesarian
section, if in their judgement there there is a sound basis for alerting all care, givers, as well as the patient that the patient may be a candidate for a cesarian
One of the main reasons women may want a primary elective cesarian
delivery is to protect the pelvic floor from injury leading to urinary and fecal incontinence, but they need to know that current evidence suggests it will not prevent every such case, Dr.
and to reduce Cesarian
Section rate for safer, more cost-effective
We accept, for example, a two-fold difference in the incidence of prostatic surgery in two neighboring counties in Vermont, a one-and-one-half-fold difference in cesarian
section rates between two hospitals or even two physicians, and a two- to three-fold difference in mortality rates among cardiac surgeons.
