Question 5 A 42 year old woman had an elective caesarean section at 37 weeks gestation for major placenta previa. She returned to theatre 6h later because of suspected intra-abdominal bleeding and has undergone a total abdominal hysterectomy Your answer: I

Correct answer: I

Question 6 A 35 year old Rhesus positive woman presented with fresh vaginal bleeding and intermittent abdominal pain at 30 weeks gestation. Maternal pulse on admission was 90bpm with BP 120/80. The fetal heart rate was normal. She has been in hospital for 48h and complains of a slight brown discharge but no other symptoms and has had no further bleeding. Your answer: B

Correct answer: K

Dear Dr Paul,
For que 6 placental site is not mentioned then why ANC clinic F/u? should we presume that since she is in hospital for 48 hrs it would have been done?


Question 10: With respect to IUCDs

a. The GyneFix IUCD is associated with a significantly lower expulsion rate compared to the Cu T 380
True False Mark\'s answer: false Correct answer: true

The guideline says ….

18. The risk of expulsion with intrauterine contraception is around 1 in 20 and is most common in the first year of use, particularly within 3 months of insertion (Grade B).
19. In general, there are no differences in the rates of expulsion between different Cu-IUDs and between Cu-IUDs and the LNG-IUS (Grade A).

whats the answer?

I can see your point but there is no reason for waiting 48h before requesting an ultrasound scan.
