What are the criteria for medical treatment (i.e. methotrexate) for ectopic pregnancy?
- hemodynamic stability,
- non-ruptured ectopic pregnancy,
- size of ectopic mass <4 cm without a fetal heart rate or <3.5 cm in the presence of a fetal heart rate,
- normal liver enzymes and renal function,
- normal white cell count,
- ability of the patient to follow up rapidly if her condition changes (reliable transportation, etc.).
What are some Bishop score modifiers?
- add 1 point:
- each prior vaginal delivery
- subtract 1 point:
- postdate pregnancy
What is peripartum cardiomyopathy?
idiopathic cardiomyopathy that presents with heart failure secondary to left ventricular systolic function towards the end of pregnancy or in the several months following delivery
What happens with PFT's during pregnancy?
- Inspiratory Capacity (IC)increased
- Tidal volume (TV)increased
- Functional reserve capacity (FRC)decreased
- Expiratory reserve capacity (ERC)decreased
- Residual volume (RV)decreased
- Total lung capacity (TLC)decreased
Besides PFT changes, what other respiratory changes occur?
- Diaphragmatic excursion is increased during pregnancy and it is not limited by the enlarging uterus.
- The upper displacement by the uterus causes a 4 cm elevation of the diaphragm
- total lung capacity decreases only slightly because of the compensatory widening of the chest.(increasing of subcostal angle)
- The minute ventilation is the product of the respiratory rate and the tidal volume (TV.)
- The respiratory rate does not change during pregnancy,
- TV is increased which increases the minute ventilation,
- --> respiratory alkalosis.
Associated with valproic acid during pregnancy
- neural tube defects (1-2%)
- craniofacial malformations

What are normal values for 3-hr glucose tolerance test?
