allo all--new grad here with another exciting question to all you wizened ones of obstetrics--
at what point do you want mom to be able to squat or raise head into high fowlers when pushing to avoid having the cranial/pelvic collision ( like my med term? i made it all by myself...)
I am still in orientation ( thank goodness, however not for much longer*yikes*) and when I am independently pushing with my couple they ask if she can raise the head of the bed, and I only do so minimally until mom is comfortable until i see hair through the bulge...is this too long?
also, what is the primary reason for a fetal descent resulting in an acycnclitic presentation? what type of distress can this cause?
also one more thing here, when we are worried about water intox. with pitocin, when have you seen it manifest? are we talking second day induction?
and finally...what do you do about those darn snotty nurses who think you have one brain cell because your name tag says graduate nurse????grrr...that's not really a question here...i know I just gotta stiffen up a bit, but man, petty petty petty....
again, another incredibly effective lesson on how NOT to be once I pass my boards...i CAN"T wait until i get a student following me around....( i mean give me a year though, k)??
