physiology or pathophysio of cesarean section

  1. hello all, hope you could help me with my comprehensive nursing care plan...

    we were asked to make a diagram of the physio/pathophysio of our case...since my patient was post primary LTCS secondary to cord coil, i don't know what important details to include.

    If i start with fertilization...how in the world can it lead to cord coil/CS or what factors (risk/predisposing) etc...

    hope you could help. thanks so much!

    well, everything is pretty normal up to the part where the umbilical cord gets coiled around the baby's neck. that occurs because of fetal movement in the uterus. here are a few articles that talk about that:

    http://www.marchofdimes.com/professionals/681_4546.asp - umbilical cord abnormalities
    http://www.emedicine.com/med/topic3276.htm - umbilical cord complications

    it becomes a crisis for the baby because it affects their blood supply.
