Home care of high risk pregnant women by advanced practice nurses: nurse time consumed. (1/2239)

This study examined the time spent by advanced practice nurses (APNs) in providing prenatal care to women with high risk pregnancies. The results indicate that the overall mean APN time spent in providing prenatal care was 51.3 hours per woman. The greatest amount of time was spent in the clinic and women with pregestational diabetes consumed the most APN time and required the most contacts. Historically, home care services have been measured by number of visits or contacts. This study assists home care nurses and administrators to consider additional measurements including time spent.  (+info)

Maternal smoking and Down syndrome: the confounding effect of maternal age. (2/2239)

Inconsistent results have been reported from studies evaluating the association of maternal smoking with birth of a Down syndrome child. Control of known risk factors, particularly maternal age, has also varied across studies. By using a population-based case-control design (775 Down syndrome cases and 7,750 normal controls) and Washington State birth record data for 1984-1994, the authors examined this hypothesized association and found a crude odds ratio of 0.80 (95% confidence interval 0.65-0.98). Controlling for broad categories of maternal age (<35 years, > or =35 years), as described in prior studies, resulted in a negative association (odds ratio = 0.87, 95% confidence interval 0.71-1.07). However, controlling for exact year of maternal age in conjunction with race and parity resulted in no association (odds ratio = 1.00, 95% confidence interval 0.82-1.24). In this study, the prevalence of Down syndrome births increased with increasing maternal age, whereas among controls the reported prevalence of smoking during pregnancy decreased with increasing maternal age. There is a substantial potential for residual confounding by maternal age in studies of maternal smoking and Down syndrome. After adequately controlling for maternal age in this study, the authors found no clear relation between maternal smoking and the risk of Down syndrome.  (+info)

Influence of prenatal iron and zinc supplements on supplemental iron absorption, red blood cell iron incorporation, and iron status in pregnant Peruvian women. (3/2239)

BACKGROUND: It is estimated that 60% of pregnant women worldwide are anemic. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to examine the influence of iron status on iron absorption during pregnancy by measuring supplemental iron absorption, red blood cell iron incorporation, and iron status in pregnant women. DESIGN: Subjects were 45 pregnant Peruvian women (33+/-1 wk gestation), of whom 28 received daily prenatal supplements containing 60 mg Fe and 250 microg folate without (Fe group, n = 14) or with (Fe+Zn group, n = 14) 15 mg Zn, which were were consumed from week 10 to 24 of gestation until delivery. The remaining 17 women (control) received no prenatal supplementation. Iron status indicators and isotopes were measured in maternal blood collected 2 wk postdosing with oral (57Fe) and intravenous (58Fe) stable iron isotopes. RESULTS: Maternal serum ferritin and folate concentrations were significantly influenced by supplementation (P < 0.05). Serum iron was also significantly higher in the Fe than in the Fe+Zn (P < 0.03) or control (P < 0.001) groups. However, the supplemented groups had significantly lower serum zinc concentrations than the control group (8.4+/-2.3 and 10.9+/-1.8 micromol/L, respectively, P < 0.01). Although percentage iron absorption was inversely related to maternal serum ferritin concentrations (P = 0.036), this effect was limited and percentage iron absorption did not differ significantly between groups. CONCLUSIONS: Because absorption of nonheme iron was not substantially greater in pregnant women with depleted iron reserves, prenatal iron supplementation is important for meeting iron requirements during pregnancy.  (+info)

Mediators of ethnic-associated differences in infant birth weight. (6/2239)

PURPOSE: To examine whether ethnic differences in low birth weight babies of low-income women may be explained in part by group differences in prenatal health behaviors and psychosocial factors. METHODS: A prospective, survey of 1,071 low-income, primiparous African-American and Mexican-origin women was conducted in Los Angeles County, California. In face-to-face interviews, data were obtained on substance use, prenatal stress, social support, attitudes toward pregnancy, initiation of prenatal care, and medical risk. Medical chart data were abstracted regarding medical risk factors and labor, delivery, and neonatal data. Interview data were linked with birth outcome data retrieved from maternal medical records. Structural equation modeling was used to test a hypothesized model in which differences in birth weight were expected to be mediated by ethnic differences in substance use, psychosocial factors, and medical risk. RESULTS: As expected, African-American women delivered babies of earlier gestational age and lower birth weight than did women of Mexican origin. Direct predictors of low birth weight were use of drugs and cigarettes, prenatal stress, and positive attitudes toward pregnancy; together, these factors accounted for the observed ethnic differences in birth weight. CONCLUSION: These data contribute to our understanding of the factors that may account for ethnic-associated differences in low birth weight.  (+info)

Erythema infectiosum (Fifth disease) and pregnancy. (7/2239)

QUESTION: One of my patients is currently 14 weeks pregnant. She is a teacher in grade 1, and there is an epidemic of Fifth disease in the school where she teaches. Can this disease affect her pregnancy and how should I care for her? ANSWER: Erythema infectiosum (Fifth disease) is usually a benign disease for children and mothers, but might have serious consequences for a fetus due to hemolytic anemia, although the risk is very low. You should evaluate the mother's immune status. If she is already immune (IgG positive), the risks are nil. If she is not immune (although the risk of the fetus's being affected is very low), fetal surveillance by repeated ultrasonographic examination and immune status reevaluation has been recommended. If a fetus is found to be affected, intrauterine evaluation and treatment are available at tertiary care centres.  (+info)

Maternity care calendar wheel. Improved obstetric wheel developed in British Columbia. (8/2239)

PROBLEM BEING ADDRESSED: Gestational calendar "wheels" are not well designed for routine prenatal care or for presenting the uncertainties of predicting date of delivery. OBJECTIVE OF PROGRAM: To design and pilot-test a new gestational calendar wheel that predicts the range of normal due dates in a way that reflects the biological realities of pregnancy. The calendar has prompts that could facilitate provision of antenatal care, support prenatal education, and guide the timing of induction for pregnancies past their due dates. MAIN COMPONENTS OF PROGRAM: The calendar sets out the key issues to be addressed with patients during pregnancy. It is designed to be photocopied while set to patients' dates: patients keep one copy; another is placed in their charts. The probability of delivering on a given date is presented graphically and as a percentage likelihood of giving birth during specified intervals. Twelve practising physicians, 12 residents, and 10 pregnant women pilot-tested and evaluated the wheel. Their responses were favourable. CONCLUSIONS: The Maternity Care Calendar wheel is a substantial advance on existing obstetric calendar wheels. It incorporates evidence-based information that should facilitate prenatal care, promote prenatal education, and foster realistic expectations about the likely timing of delivery. Early in the pregnancy, it can help establish the timing of induction for pregnancies past their due dates. Further testing of the calendar's effectiveness in improving patient outcomes is needed.  (+info)

The Tanzanian government recommends women who attend antenatal care (ANC) clinics to accept receiving intermittent preventive treatment against malaria during pregnancy (IPTp) and vouchers for insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) at subsidized prices. Little emphasis has been paid to investigate the ability of pregnant women to access and effectively utilize these services. To describe the experience and perceptions of pregnant women about costs and cost barriers for accessing ANC services with emphasis on IPTp in rural Tanzania. Qualitative data were collected in the districts of Mufindi in Iringa Region and Mkuranga in Coast Region through 1) focus group discussions (FGDs) with pregnant women and mothers to infants and 2) exit-interviews with pregnant women identified at ANC clinics. Data were analyzed manually using qualitative content analysis methodology. FGD participants and interview respondents identified the following key limiting factors for womens use of ANC services: 1) costs in terms of money
A recent illuminating qualitative study by Zulueta and Boulton1 explores the practicalities of informed consent in routine antenatal HIV testing. Its results support what I have argued1 is inevitable with routine testing policies of this kind: that routine antenatal testing regimes are incompatible with requirements for informed consent. It has become clear that intervention could reduce the risk of transmitting HIV from mother to child from 15-20%2 to around 8%,3 or possibly as low as 2%.4,5 The evidence of this possibility produced a general trend towards introducing routine antenatal HIV screening in developed countries worldwide.6,7,8,9,10 The aim was to dramatically reduce the rate of HIV transmission from mother to child by encouraging universal antenatal HIV testing. The UK has been no exception, and in 1999 the government instructed health authorities to implement a policy of offering and recommending an HIV test to all pregnant women.11 ...

For my course project, I have chosen the challenge area of prenatal risk factors with the subtopic of health. Prenatal health is a factor in a childs development and affects their school readiness and their learning. American babies, compared with those from other developed nations, are receiving inadequate prenatal care and less time at home with their parents during the first year of life (Lally, 2010). I am interested in assisting the women in my community receive quality prenatal care so that they have a safe pregnancy and so that their child has the best opportunity to be healthy, happy, and successful. In addition, I believe early childhood education is the foundation to a childs overall education and a mom who has quality prenatal care and has assistance for their childs development and learning from age birth to three, their child will be successful and ready to enter Pre-K or K. It is during the first few years of life that early experience starts shaping the foundational learning ...
Over the past decade, Cambodia has seen a significant decline in its malaria burden. The government has established the goal of eliminating malaria in the country by 2025. With PMI/USAID support, Cambodia is implementing a package of interventions as part of its efforts. This assessment aimed to describe the cost of malaria elimination activities in Sampov Loun Operational District (OD) between July 2015 and March 2018, to describe the cost per malaria case detected under PMI programming, and to estimate the incremental cost-effectiveness of the elimination programme per Plasmodium falciparum (Pf) or P. vivax (Pv)/Pf mixed case averted under the Cambodia Malaria Elimination Programme (CMEP) and the U.S. Presidents Malaria Initiative. Opportunity costs of government workers were also assessed to understand the theoretical cost of sustaining this programme through government efforts alone. We conducted an empirical micro-costing analysis based on elimination activities alone using CMEP internal ...

GDM now affects about 17.5% of pregnant women in the Chinese population,28 and the prevalence is also increasing in the global population.12. Early diagnosis of GDM would play an important role in the prevention of short-term and long-term complications that affect both the mothers and their offspring. However, in current clinical practice, the diagnosis of GDM is mainly based on an OGTT between 24 and 28 gestational weeks and therapy typically begins in the third trimester, which may not be early enough for prevention of complications.. Different strategies have been studied for early diagnosis of GDM. We joined a multicentre investigation on the predictive value of FPG for subsequent GDM. The result of the study showed that about two-thirds of pregnant women whose FPG≥6.10 mmol/L at the first prenatal visit would develop GDM, but an OGTT was still recommended at 24-28 gestational weeks.28 Following this study, we found that the FPG level at the first prenatal visit was associated with ...

Prenatal clinic is a place, where an expectant mother receives maximum care and support during her pregnancy. Every pregnant woman has her own opinion on prenatal care that can meet her needs and exceed her expectations. Of course, everyone wants to hear the doctors words: Everythings going to be fine, Your baby is completely healthy, Your pregnancy is going well. At the same time, every woman wants to be sure that, if she or her unborn child face any problems, her prenatal care provider will be able to detect them in a timely manner, order all necessary tests and examinations, or, if required, refer to the next level of medical care (specialized department of the hospital, perinatal center, etc.). Therefore, the main requirement, when choosing prenatal clinic, should be body-certified specialists and state-of-the-art equipment, which allow a pregnant woman to have all necessary tests and examinations in the healthcare facility ...
This research demonstrates the feasibility of implementing a group prenatal visit program for Japanese women in a family medicine setting. We culturally modified the Centering Pregnancy program based on our previous clinical experience16,17 and research.21 To our knowledge, this is the first-ever application of a group prenatal visit program in Japanese. We firmly believe that sociocultural adaptations to the Centering Pregnancy model were critical. Especially important changes included fewer sessions and changes in the topics covered, for example, dropping the topic of domestic violence and adding newborn care and teaching about differences in pregnancy care between Japan and the United States.21⇓-23 We did not modify the approach to a semiprivate clinical examination in the room, but opinions about this varied: about half expressed concerns about compromised privacy, a primary source of discontent related to them not wanting other participants to overhear conversations..

This first paper of the Lancet Series on ending preventable stillbirths reviews progress in essential areas, identified in the 2011 call to action for stillbirth prevention, to inform the integrated post-2015 agenda for maternal and newborn health. Worldwide attention to babies who die in stillbirth is rapidly increasing, from integration within the new Global Strategy for Womens, Childrens and Adolescents Health, to country policies inspired by the Every Newborn Action Plan. Supportive new guidance and metrics including stillbirth as a core health indicator and measure of quality of care are emerging. Prenatal health is a crucial biological foundation to life-long health. A key priority is to integrate action for prenatal health within the continuum of care for maternal and newborn health. Still, specific actions for stillbirths are needed for advocacy, policy formulation, monitoring, and research, including improvement in the dearth of data for effective coverage of proven interventions for ...
HIV can be transmitted to the offspring from an infected pregnant woman. Anyone who suspects herself to be infected with HIV should seek the doctors counselling and receive an HIV antibody test before embarking on pregnancy. Currently, HIV antibody routine screening is adopted in the public antenatal services under the Department of Health and Hospital Authority (the attending pregnant women may however opt not to be tested according to their own will). If any of the expectant mothers are found to be HIV-positive, they will be counselled by the concerned doctors with the support of the nurse counsellor and social worker on issues such as the available treatment options (including those intended for prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV), the potential adverse effects of such treatments, the risk of vertical transmission to the baby, the natural course of HIV infection, the possible psycho-social effect of HIV infection to the woman, the expectant baby and her family.
