9 CBC result 8/1/09 8/3/09 Hgb 103 124 Hct 31 36 RBC 3.7 RBC morphology
Slightly hypochromic, normocytic

10 Placenta previa, in hemorrhage.
ADMITTING DIAGNOSIS Uterine pregnancy at 38 and 2/7 weeks AOG by LMP, Cephalic presentation but not in labor, G4P2 (2012) with 1 previous CS for chorioamnionitis in 2007; Placenta previa, in hemorrhage.

11 COURSE IN THE WARDS on admission; underwent emergency classical cesarean section 1 with hysterectomy Delivery of a live full term baby girl (birth weight of kg, Birth length of 52 cm and APGAR score of 9 and 9) Blood loss of approximately 2,100 cc and blood transfusion with 3 units of PRBC The patient had stable VS at the Recovery Room, and first post-operative day. The patient recuperated well until her discharge on the 4th post-operative day.

12 SUBJECTIVE DATA 32 y/o female G4P2 (2012); AOG of 38 2/7 weeks
Vaginal bleeding Irregular contractions of moderate intensity Good fetal movement History of spontaneous abortion; S/P completion curettage Emergency CS Non-smoker; non-alcolic beverage drinker

13 OBJECTIVE DATA Normal VS Continuous trickling of blood on pelvic exam
FH of 33cm; FHT of 140s (normal) Bipedal edema, grade 2 CBC: low Hgb, Hct and RBC count slightly hypochromic, normocytic

Abruptio placenta

15 ABRUPTIO PLACENTA RULED IN: Risk factors: increasing maternal age,
multiparity Clinical presentation: Uterine bleeding Initially brownish discharge followed by bright red blood bleed Presence of Uterine contractions

absence of unremitting abdominal/back pain Absence of uterine tenderness, often hypertonic uterus Absence of other risk factors; (hydramnios, diabetes mellitus, thrombophilias, uterine tumors like leiomyoma, nephropathy, fibroids, cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption of at least 14 drinks per week, cocaine use, abdominal trauma and maternal type O blood) - (-) signs of fetal distress

17 PRIMARY IMPRESSION: Placenta previa

18 PLACENTA PREVIA RULED IN: Risk factors Increasing maternal age
Multiparity History of abortion, S/P completion curettage History of CS, chorioamnionitis Clinical presentation Painless, persistent vaginal bleeding; bright red blood Presence of contractions (-) signs of fetal distress; unangaged fetal head

19 Placenta Previa Condition in which the placenta implanted in the lower uterine segment within the zone of effacement and dilatation of the cervix Leading cause of 3rd trimester bleeding Occurs in 1:200 live births often associated with placenta accreta.

20 Diagnosis and Plan of Management
Clinical presentation: Painless, persistent vaginal bleeding (-) signs of fetal distress; unengaged fetal head (-/+) uterine contractions Presence of Risk Factors: Increasing maternal age, Multiparity, multiple gestation, abnormal vascularization of the endometrium caused by scarring or atrophy from previous trauma, surgery or infection, smoking, alcoholic beverages drinking… definitive diagnosis can be made via a transabdominal UTZ, or transvaginal ultrasound

21 Diagnosis and Plan of Management
2 possible approaches: cautious surveillance (watchful waiting) active approach Delivery of the baby Management prior to delivery: correction of blood loss with intravenous fluids Blood transfusion
