7.
To measure the frequency of Susan's contractions you examine a 10-minute strip and:
D.determine the time from the beginning to the end of each contraction in a 10-minute stripDetermining the time from the beginning of a contraction to the end of thecontraction would measure contraction duration, not contraction frequency.You determine that Susan's contractions are now occurring every 5-6 minutes and lasting 30-45 seconds.
1.EFFACINGCorrectYou determine that Susan's cervix is 3 centimeters (cm) dilated and 80% effaced.You know that cervical dilatation progresses from 1 cm to 10 cm during labor.9.
You also determine that the fetus is at zero station. John is curious about what you mean by"the fetus is at zero station." Your response is based on the knowledge that zero stationmeans that:A.the baby's presenting part is at the level of the mother's ischial spinesCorrectWhen the fetus is considered to be at zero station, the presenting part is at thelevel of the mother's ischial spines. The presenting part is now "engaged."B.the baby's presenting part is at the level of the mother's pelvic inletWhen the baby's presenting part is at the level of the mother's pelvic inlet, the babyis not described as being at zero station.C.the biparietal diameter of the fetal skull is at the level of the mother's iliaccrestsWhen the biparietal diameter of the fetal skull is at the level of the mother's iliaccrests, the baby is not described as being at zero station.D.the baby's head is high in the pelvis and is still ballottableWhen the baby's head is high in the pelvis and still ballottable, the baby is notdescribed as being at zero station.Station advances from -5 to +5 as the presenting part of the fetus descends through thepelvis.At -5, the presenting part of the fetus is below the level of the iliac crests at the pelvic inlet.
