I discovered yesterday that in my new job I will have a lot of Eclamptic patients in the ICU, in Africa. I'm not sure they will have flow sheets to use for the patients, as I want to improve patient care (the reason they are sending me there) it seems a flow sheet would be good. Anyone who is willing to send me one or a care plan either by email or snail mail please email me at [email protected]
I'll adjust some of the parameters to be sure, but right now, I am not an OB nurse, so I have no idea exactly what should be checked when...
Oops I guess I should add that I will have somewhat intermitent access to email after today. I hope someone can help me out... I'll reward you in some way!!! (souvineer, photos of your flow sheet in action, etc)
I can send you what we use for a careplan and the items we track on flow sheets, if that would help?
Katie, when do you go to Africa? Will you have regular email access where you'll be? If you are able, check in and tell us your stories!!
I had to do a little presentation on PIH/preeclampsia/eclampsia for my OB rotation & there was a lot of interesting info on the Preeclampsia Foundation webpage. I don't know if maybe someone there or someone at the 'N.American Society for the Study of HTN in Pregnancy' could give you some good materials to use:
Don't know if you can use any of these things I found online:
PIH/preeclampsia flow sheet:
Aggressive Management of Hellp Syndrome and Eclampsia (AACN)
Managing Complications in Pregnancy and Childbirth .pdf (WHO; the eclampsia part is a little more than a third of the way down the pdf, the numbering is funny but it's page s-35):
Or here for html version:
WHO reproductive health page:
AWHONN Templates for Protocols and Procedures for Maternity Services (ordering info at the bottom of the page):
Detecting pre-eclampsia: a practical guide (WHO):
OB flow sheet:
cardiac/HTN/diabetes intake form:
AMA measurement sets for selected conditions c plan of care:
OB assessment database:
Care plan info for preeclampsia/ excess fluid volume:
