|Q2: In women experiencing pre-labour rupture of membranes, how many go into labour spontaneously witthing 72hrs?
|Q3:Under what circumstances would a managed third stage be appropriate, even with an expectant managemet caregiver? (5 marks)
I can only think of four situations and the question is for five marks - any ideas? Here is what I have:
1. If the mother is having twins, triplets, etc
2. If the mother has a history of post-partum hemhorage
3. If the mother wants to collect stem cells from the blood of the umbilical cord
4. If the mother received oxytocic drugs to stimulate contractions during labour
|Q4: What would the normal range of time be for an actively managed third stage:
a) up to 6 mins
b) up to 30 mins
c) up to 1 hour
d) up to 2 hours

same options as for Q4
