physiology or pathophysio of cesarean section
- 0Mar 6, '07 by oracle389hello 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!

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