ALGORITHM 1

Taking of the history in the pregnant woman

I. Anamnesis (in translation from Greek - flashback, reminder) is the taking of information about the origin and motion of disease. At the inspection of pregnant in detail obstetric anamnesis is found out. Finding is added to the individual card of pregnant and postpartum patient. A woman is asked in special order:

1. Passport data. The last name, name, patronymic, age, profession, place of work, address.

2. Reasons, that forced a woman to appeal for the medical help (stopping of menstruation, bloody discharge, increase of frequency of urination, enlargement of milk glands, pains in a abdomen or back and in.).

3. Domestic anamnesis. Heredity: psychical diseases, alcoholism, drug addiction, lacks of development and other diseases which can be inherited or be had unfavorable influence on development of fetus.

4. Carried more early disease. Rachitis, effecting on deformations of pelvis; infectious diseases which can affect sexual development of girl, illnesses of liver, heart, lungs.

ALGORITHM 2

Calculation pulse rate

1. Necessary tool.

Clock or stop-watch

 

2. Position of patient.

3. Order.

The patient is in bed or sits on a chair in comfortable position

1.          Switch a stop-watch or mark on a watch the time.

2.         Overcome the left hand of patient by a right hand in the area of radiocarpal joint.  Place a thumb finger on the external surface of joint, and index, mid and nameless on  internal.

3.         To find the radial artery.

4.         To calculate the frequency of pulse for a 1 minute.

Pay attention to filling, strenght, rhythm of pulse.

Fill in the pulse in a temperature chart by a red pencil.

ALGORITHM 3

Estimation of arterial blood pressure

 Necessary tool

Tonometer, phonendoscope.

 

Position of patient

 The patient is in bed or sits on a chair near table, an arm is located on the table higher than elbow.

 

Order

1.           To put on the shoulder of patient a blood pressure cuff so that its lower edge should be present on 2-3 cm above elbow.

2.           To connect a cuff with the bulb of tonometer.

3.           To find  the place of pulsation of radial artery in the area of elbow. To put  phonendoscope into this place.

4.           Close a valve.

5.           Pressing a pear, force air in a cuff.

6.           After disappearance of sound of pulse blows force air still on 2-3 points.

7.           Halt to force air, open a valve and slowly let out air.

8.           Mark a mark on a scale, when with¢there will be the first pulse blow. It is the size of systolic pressure.

9.           Continuing to let out air, mark on a scale a mark which pulse blows disappear on. It is the size of diastolic pressure.

One finger only should pass through the cuff.

At pregnant arterial pressure is measured on both hands

 

ALGORITHM 4

Leopolds maneuvers

Necessary tool

Not needed

 

Position of patient

 The pregnant lies on the back. The doctor sitting to the right from pregnant.

 

Order

The first maneuver. The hands of both hands very tightly are laid horizontally, in the area of uterine fundus. Carefully press on a uterine fundus.

The second maneuver. Both hands are placed on the lateral surfaces of uterus at the level of umbilicus. By turns by a right and left hand palpation of fetal parts is performed. Carefully pressing by hands and fingers of hands on the lateral surfaces of uterus, dense, smooth, wide and shiny part is determined from one side - the back of fetus, from opposite small parts are palpated .

The third maneuver. By a right hand presented part of fetus is grasped (large finger from one side and four - from the opposite side of lower segment of uterus). The character of presented part and its station is determined.

Fourth maneuver.  A doctor is standing towards patients feet. The hands of both hands are located on the lateral surfaces of lower uterine segment and carefully try to insert the fingers between presented part and pelvic inlet.  

The level of uterine fundus location and part of fetus, located in a fundus, is determined. Gestational age is determined.

By this maneuver the lie, position,variety, and also uterine tone, quantity of amniotic fluid waters and fetal movement, are  determined.

Presented part station is determined. 

Presented part station is determined.

ALGORITHM 5

Fetal heart tones auscultation

Necessary tool

Obstetric stethoscope

 

Position of patient

 The pregnant occupies position, lying on a the back with extended feet.

 

Order

Stetoscope is located on the place of the most clear feeling of fetal movement on the  anterior abdominal wall.  One end of watering-can of stetoscope is very tightly pressed on the pregnants abdomen, the second end of stetoscope a doctor puts to the area of ear.

Fetal heart tones are most distinctly listened from the side of the back of fetus, to the left - at the first position, to the right - at the second position, below the umbilicus at cephalic presentation, above at breech presentation.

The rate of fetal heart tones is  - 120-140per minute.

Tones of heart are double, rhythmic, do not correspond with the pulse of pregnant.

ALGORITHM 6

Estimation of uterine height and circumference of the abdomen

Necessary tool

Centimeter tape

 

Position of patient

 The pregnant occupies position lying on he back with extended feet.

 

Order

1.                 By a right hand, beginning of centimeter  tape is fixed to the middle of the symphysis. The end is touch in a midline to the uterine fundus.  The left hand determines the uterine height. It is marked on the tape.  

2.                 The onset of centimeters tape is taken by the left hand, a tape is stretched out under the back of pregnant at the level of iliac spines, at the  level of umbilicus for estimation of circumference of the abdomen

 

ALGORITHM 7

Determination of the expected fetal weight

For determination of the expected weight of fetus (EFW) it is necessary to know the height of standing of uterine fundus (UF) and circumference of abdomen(AC) of pregnant.

Volscov formula:

EFW = UF x AC 

For example: UF= 32 cm, AC = 100 cm. Multiply: 32100, we received 3200cm. The expected weight of fetus is 3200 g.

Yacubova formula:  EFW= (AC+UF) : 4 x 100

For example:  UF= 32 sm, AC = 100 sm. Adding 32+100, we get 132, dividing on 4, we get 33, multiply on 100, we have the expected fetal weight 3300 g.

ALGORITHM 8

Determination of gestational age of the pregnancy and probable day of delivery

1. from data of WOH a date which we get is considered the date of births, deducting 3 calendar months backwards from the 1th day of the last menstruation;

2. on a method Negele: from the 1th day of the last menstruation to deduct 3 calendar months and add 7 days. For example: date of beginning of the last menstruation on January, 26. We add 7 days we get on February, 2. From February, 2 we deduct backwards 3 months. Term of births on a November, 2.

3. Date of non-permanent sexual intercourse. If to the number, when sexual intercourse happened, to add 273 days, the got number will be considered the date of the expected births.

4. Date of ovulation. For determination of term of births it is needed from the first day  of the expected menstruation which did not come, to take away 14 days and to the got number add 273 days.

5. Date of the first feeling of motions of fetus. That to get the date of births in primapara, to the day of the first feeling of motions of fetus to add 20 weeks, and inmultipara  - 22 weeks.

ALGORITHM 9

Measuring of external sizes of pelvis

 

Necessary tool

Pelvimeter

 

Position of patient

 The pregnant occupies position, lying on a bed on the back with extended feet.

 

Order

Distantia spinarum - is measured between liac spines. It has 25-26 cm.

Distantia cristarum  - is measured between the prominent points of iliac bones In has 28-29 cm.

Distantia trochanterica - is measured between the prominent parts of trochanter major.  It has 30-31 cm.

External Conjugate is measured from the middle of symphysis til fossa suprasacralis. It has  20-21 cm.

The formula of pelvis is written down so:

25-28-31-20cm

Solovjov Index  - the average circumference of the radiocarpal joint.

It has 14-16 cm. An index is used for estimation of thickness of pelvic bones.
