Nursing student here.......just checked Clonus on a patient today.
This, from what I understand, is a test for hyperreflexia right???
Two patients today were positive but heard that it's pretty rare.
What does this indicate??
Thanks in advance.
P.S. Also, why are DTR(deep tendon reflexes) important when assessing mom??
Please remember what your first day in your OB nursing rotation was like and how different it was. . .
There's no need to be condescending.
Preeclampsia is a difficult, complicated (no pun intended) issue.
