Maternal risks of a multi-fetal pregnancy include hypertension, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, and postpartum hemorrhage (Multifetal Pregnancy Reduction, 2013). Maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality increase with each fetus. The most common method of fetal reduction is trans-abdominal multi-fetal pregnancy reduction. An ultrasound is used as a guide and a needle containing potassium chloride is inserted through the woman’s abdomen, into the uterus and into the fetal sac causing the heart to stop (www.webmd.com). Following the procedure, the fetal tissue is normally absorbed by the mother’s body.
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is a series of birth defects such as physical, mental, behavioral and learning problems caused by the mother drinking alcohol during pregnancy. Kenneth Jones and David Smith at the University of Washington in Seattle officially identified Fetal Alcohol Syndrome in 1973 (Golden 1). The exact reasons certain fetuses are affected and others are not, is not fully understood. CDC reports state that 0.2 to 1.5 per 1000 babies are born each year in the United States with alcohol related birth defects (CDC 1). Fetal Alcohol Syndrome can be prevented with education.
The new LDL levels were notably measured by their percent change from the old LDL levels. It is said that the 6 mg/kg dose lowered LDL levels by a percent change of 56% while the 3 mg/kg dose lowered LDL levels by a percent change of 46%. After 4 weeks the scientists found that some patients even had a LDL level reduction on 80% on the highest dose (6 mg/kg)! A blocking variable of name, race, or gender is not noted in the article. However, it is said that patients using cholesterol-lowering statins were used for the experiment which means patients who had high levels of cholesterol were mainly used as experimental
Following an intensive screening and selection process the donor endures a few weeks of invasive medical procedures. First the donor and the woman who will carry the child must coordinate their menstrual cycles. Typically the donor and the recipient take birth-control pills, followed by shots of a synthetic hormone such as Lupron; the combination suppresses ovulation and puts their cycles in sync. After altering her cycle the donor must enhance her egg supply with fertility drugs in the same way an infertile woman does when trying to conceive. Shots of a fertility hormone are administered for seven to eleven days, to stimulate the production of an abnormally large number of egg-containing follicles.

I have been pregnant and addicted, so this is an issue that is very near and dear to my heart. I believe that addiction is a disease that is not curable but it can be arrested if the proper steps are taken. I know for myself that I did not want to use drugs while I was pregnant or harm my child in anyway shape or form, but I was under the control of the drugs, not my own personal values. If I would not have been given the chance to address my addiction I would not be the person that I am today. Also, the education I have been taught has led me down a better path, I can now be a productive responsible human being and mother.
Trinity Horn Intro. To Writing Wilcoxon 9/15/2010 At 2 years, cocaine babies suffer cognitive development effects This article is about how many renowned researches wanted to prove their theories about the long term effects cocaine has on infants. The researches followed 415 cocaine-exposed infants to find out how prenatal cocaine exposure affected the developmental outcomes. During these studies they found that a lot of their results were flawed for several reasons; being, high drop-out rates, small sample sizes and etc. So to help them fix where they went wrong they added other factors into their study; such as, mothers’ vocabulary and mental health status.
An ACE inhibitor medication inhibits the enzyme that allows this conversion to occur, and therefore, decreases blood pressure. Nursing responsibilities prior to administration: Monitor BP and potassium level (for hyperkalemia). A persistent cough is a common side effect of ACE inhibitors. Angioedema is a rare, but serious side effect. Do not use during pregnancy!
