B. Hemoglobin levelC. hCG levelD. Maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein (MSAFP)The indirect Coombs test is a screening tool for Rh incompatibility. If the maternal titer for Rhantibodies   is  greater   than  1:8,   amniocentesis   for   determination  of   bilirubin  in  amniotic   fluid  isindicated to establish the severity of fetal hemolytic anemia. Hemoglobin reveals the oxygen carryingcapacity of the blood. hCG is the hormone of pregnancy. Maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein (MSAFP)levels are used as a screening tool for NTDs in pregnancyAwarded 0.0 points out of 1.0 possible points.9.9.ID: 499295673The health care provider has ordered a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study to be done on a pregnant patient to evaluate fetal structure and growth. The nurse should include which instructions when preparing the patient for this test? (Select all that apply.)Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a noninvasive radiologic technique used for obstetric and gynecologic diagnosis. Similar to computed tomography (CT), MRI provides excellent pictures of softtissue. Unlike CT, ionizing radiation is not used. Therefore vascular structures within the body can bevisualized and evaluated without injecting an iodinated contrast medium, thus eliminating any knownbiologic risk. Similar to sonography, MRI is noninvasive and can provide images in multiple planes, but no interference occurs from skeletal, fatty, or gas-filled structures, and imaging of deep pelvic structures does not require a full bladder. The woman is placed on a table in the supine position and moved into the bore of the main magnet, which is similar in appearance to a CT scanner. Dependingon the reason for the study, the procedure may take from 20 to 60 minutes, during which time the woman must be perfectly still except for short respites.Awarded 0.0 points out of 2.0 possible points.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
