This video considers pre-term labor risk factors and symptoms, shows ways to control pre-term labor through non-pharmacological means as well as through the use of tocolytics. It considers sources of bleeding during pregnancy and interventions for each and discusses four categories of hypertensive disorders during pregnancy and their risks and treatments.



Pregnancy Complications (00:29)
Some women experience complications during pregnancy. This video will cover common difficulties.

Preterm Labor (05:25)
Labor beginning prior to 37 weeks occurs in 5-10% of pregnancies and is associated with increased newborn morbidity and mortality. Contractions may be slowed by improving maternal hydration, resting, and administering tocolytics. Tocolytics delay labor for 24-48 hours so the mother can receive glucocorticoids for fetal lung maturation

Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding (05:08)
Abnormal bleeding is usually caused by placenta previa or abruptio placentae; if bleeding persists, a cesarean may be necessary. Hear how to care for a placenta previa patient and view risk factors and symptoms for abruptio placentae. Hemodynamically significant cases are treated by rapid delivery; learn about nursing care.

Hypertension in Pregnancy (08:24)
Hypertension categories include chronic, gestational, preeclampsia and eclampsia, and preeclampsia superimposed on chronic hypertension. Learn about HELLP syndrome and other complications. Eclampsia is characterized by maternal seizures and treated with magnesium sulfate; side effects are counteracted by calcium gluconate.
