However, not all expectations in laser technology have been fulfilled. In laparoscopy, for instance, the use of the laser has been abandoned in favor of high-frequency electric surgery. This manuscript gives a short introduction to current therapeutic applications and limits of laser technology in gynecology and obstetrics.: Introduction While the history of laser began in1951,the first medical application in dermatology was reported by Goldmanin1962 . Since then, laser technology has evolved as an important tool in surgical treatment and it is widely used in gynecology and obstetrics. Especially in the treatment of benign and premalignant vulvar and cervical dysplasias the standard treatment involves the application of laser energy . In prenatal medicine, laser coagulation of placenta vessels has shown to be superior to any other intrauter in etherapy of twin- to-twin transfusion syndrome(TTTS) in monochorionic twin pregnancies .

Admission Carditocography

...evidence of fetal wellbeing does not solely depend on admission CTG but alternative assessment such as abdominal examination and auscultation using pinnards or Doppler device can also be used. A randomised controlled trial by (Mires et al 2001) compared the effect of admission CTG and Doppler auscultation of the fetal heart on neonatal outcome and levels of obstetric intervention in low risk obstetric population. There were no significant differences in the incidence of metabolic acidosis or any other measure of neonatal outcome among women who remained at low risk when they were admitted in labour. However, compared with women who received Doppler auscultation, women who had admission CTG were significantly more likely to have continuous fetal heart rate monitoring in labour (odd ratio 1.49, 95% confidence interval 1.26 to 1.76), augmentation of labour (1.26, 1.02 to 1.56), epidural analgesia(1.33, 1.10 to 1.61) and operative delivery (1.36, 1.12 to 1.65) They confirmed that, in the clinical environment, admission CTG had no neonatal benefit, as assessed by metabolic acidosis at delivery, but resulted in increase obstetric intervention, including operative delivery. Gourounti & Sandall (2006) also confirmed that intrapartum admission CTG in women in low risk pregnacies increases the risk of caesarean section and instrumental delivery. Their findings indicated that, there is no evidence for neonatal benefit in terms of Apgar score at 5 minutes after delivery. This view......

Advantages and Dis Advantages of Science

...have ideas, please write to the Chair of the Specialty Education Advisory Committee at the RCOG. Clinical supervision is undertaken by many different professionals. This involves providing direct teaching and assessment of all aspects of the curriculum for obstetrics and gynaecology. In order to undertake teaching and workplace-based assessments, clinical supervisors require more time within the clinical setting to perform these tasks; therefore, direct clinical care activities need to be appropriately modified to allow sufficient time and recognition for this additional work. The RCOG recognises that this will necessitate the tailoring of clinics, theatre lists and so on to the training level of the trainees in these environments and the complexity of the skills being acquired. In order to ensure high-quality education it is recommended that all those involved in these training roles undergo annual appraisal of their educational role. This may be undertaken as part of the job planning process or through a separate arrangement through the deanery; local circumstances will apply. 4 Section 1: Introduction to RCOG Educational Roles 1.1 College Tutor The role of the College Tutor is to coordinate obstetrics and gynaecology training and education in an individual trust. The responsibility for delivering that training and education lies with the Trust, on behalf of and resourced by the Postgraduate Dean. The Tutor should oversee the provision of the Specialty Training......

Gynecology

...Obstetrics and Gynecology Director: Sangeeta Jain MD Coordinator: Brandie Davis Overview: The Galveston Obstetrics and Gynecology clerkship consists of 1 week Labor and Delivery Days, 1 week of Labor and Delivery Nights, I week of Antepartum, 1 week of Post-partum 1 week of Gynecology, and 1 week of Out-patient clinic. However, the structure of the course is often changed in response to student feedback, so please refer to your syllabus for details! The obstetrics portion focuses on labor and delivery, antepartum, and postpartum aspects of patient care. The weeks that you spend in gynecology vary widely and can range from community clinics to gynecologic surgery. This clerkship is highly dependent on how much effort you put into it, as evaluations from residents and faculty make up a significant portion of your grade. The clerkship is generally VERY organized, which you will learn to appreciate as you go through other clerkships. Didactics: There are lectures one day per week, which are mandatory. You will be excused from all clinical duties on your didactic day. Apart from the lectures, you will have quizzes over certain topics in Ob-Gyn (refer to syllabus for schedule). The course textbook (Beckman) is an excellent study guide for these quizzes, but make sure you have the latest edition! Other helpful study resources are the online APGO quizzes, Blue Prints, First Aid and Case Files. You are allowed to wear casual clothes on didactic days. Small......

Hemorrhage

...are certain situations that increase the risk of postpartum hemorrhage. When determining risks for PPH, it might be helpful to think about the “4 T’s”; tone (uterine atony, distended bladder), trauma (uterine, cervical, or vaginal injury), tissue (retained placenta or clots), thrombin (pre-existing bleeding conditions) (Lalonde, & International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics, 2012). There are many risks factors for a nurse to watch for; every delivery uterine atony, incisions or tears, and hyper-coagulopathy put maternal patients at risk for massive blood loss. Induced or prolonged labor, multiple repeat births of greater or equal to five births, uterine distention (usually occurs when mother caring more than one child at a time), large amounts of amniotic fluid (polyhydramnios), abnormal placentation with abruption, placenta previa, infection in the uterus (chorioamnionitis), and retain placenta are common risks that have been documented as related factors to postpartum hemorrhage (McLintcok & James, 2011). Although there is a lot of assessment to be completed on the current obstetric status to identify bleeding risks, a nurse cannot forget to review and assess patient history to obtain other risk factors. Medical history that would be relevant factors that would increase the risk of massive bleeding are bleeding disorders such as von Willebrand disease, hemophilia carriage, factor XI deficiency and any rare bleeding disorders (McLintcok & James,......

Analysis of Service Quality

...health care service. They often work in hospitals, health care centres, and other service delivery points, but also in academic training, research, and administration. Some provide care and treatment services for patients in private homes. Many countries have a large number of community health workers who work outside formal health care institutions. Managers of health care services, health information technicians, and other assistive personnel and support workers are also considered a vital part of health care teams. Health care practitioners are commonly grouped into a number of professions: * Medical (including generalist practitioners and specialists) * Nursing (including various professional titles) * Midwifery (including Obstetrics) * Dentistry (including dental team members) * Allied health professions * Health Scientists Within each field of expertise, practitioners are often classified according to skill level and skill specialization. “Health professionals” are highly skilled workers, in professions that usually require extensive knowledge including university-level study leading to the award of a first degree or higher qualification.[2] This category includes physicians, physician assistants, dentists, midwives, registered nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists, optometrists, and others.

Obstetric Consent for the Use of Epidural Anesthesia

...Obstetric Consent for the Use of Epidural Anesthesia Sharon Lopez Apollo College Obstetrics Professor Scherer October 8, 2009 Nurse Perspective Epidural anesthesia is a procedure utilized frequently, for pain relief, by woman enduring the labor process. There are many considerations that the nurse is responsible for prior to, during, and after the procedure is performed. Knowing what these assessments, provisions, interventions, and evaluations are will prevent harm of the patient and ensure suitable pain relief measures are successful. According to Wong, epidural is the most effective pain relief measure used for labor (Wong, Perry, Hockenberry, & Deitra Leonard Lowdermilk, 2006). Epidural by Definition Epidural anesthesia involves the process of placing a needle fed catheter into the epidural space of the spinal column in between the L4 and L5 lumbar vertebrae. The purpose of this placement during labor is to block the T10 to S5 required for pain relief of all body areas involved in labor without suppressing organ function and decreasing LOC (Wong, Perry, Hockenberry, & Deitra Leonard Lowdermilk, 2006). The quantity and type of medication used determines the inhibitory effects on motor function and activity. This is a consented procedure which requires adequate education. Assessment Upon admission to the labor and delivery unit, the nurse should be attentive to any surgical history, allergies, obstetrics history, current......
