    17. 17. Importance of Fontanelles <ul><li>Fontanelles effectively reduce the diameter of the fetal skull during labour without harming the underlying brain. </li></ul><ul><li>This is known as moulding. </li></ul>Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.
    18. 18. Lateral and posterior view of moulding of the foetal skull Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.
    19. 19. The diameters of the skull <ul><li>The foetal head is ovoid in shape. </li></ul><ul><li>The attitude of the fetal head refers to the degree of flexion and extension at the upper cervical spine. </li></ul>Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.
    20. 20. Exact physiological mechanism of initiation of parturition is still unknown. But there are some processes that are of particular importance. Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.
    21. 21. What happens prior to initiation of labour? That means last 4-5 weeks of gestation. <ul><li>A) Cervical ripening. </li></ul><ul><li>Here the collagen concentrations of the cervix will be reduced. </li></ul><ul><li>The collagen lysis by collagenases will be increased with the increment of water content. </li></ul><ul><li>Collagenase activity is enhanced by relaxin hormone. And also the changes in ground substances, like proteoglycans occur. </li></ul>Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.
    22. 22. <ul><li>Cervix becomes soft and decreases the resistance to dilatation. </li></ul><ul><li>That helps in cervical effacement and dilatation. </li></ul><ul><li>B) Myometrial excitement . </li></ul><ul><li>Here the irregular uterine contractions are initiated and the myometrial excitement will be enhanced. </li></ul>Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.
    23. 23. Onset of labour. <ul><li>What should happen? </li></ul><ul><li>Uterine contractions. </li></ul><ul><li>Cervical dilatation. </li></ul><ul><li>So there are 3 main mechanisms that occur at the onset of labour as; </li></ul><ul><li>1) Increase prostaglandin synthesis in decidua and foetal membrane. </li></ul><ul><li>11) Sensitize myometrium to Oxytocin action. </li></ul><ul><li>111) Activation of hypothalamo-pituitary axis of foetus. </li></ul>Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.
    24. 24. <ul><li>So both mother and foetus make contributions towards this. Also there are certain changes that occur in labour. They are; </li></ul><ul><li>1)Hormonal factors . – Oestrogen. Oxytocin. CRH. Relaxin. Prostaglandin. </li></ul>Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.
    25. 25. <ul><li>2) Myometrial changes. </li></ul><ul><li>3)Changes of cervix (pre labour) </li></ul><ul><li>How the physiological mechanisms take place in pre and onset of labour ? </li></ul><ul><li>Reduction in progesterone receptors. </li></ul><ul><li>Increase in the oestrogen concentration relative to progesterone. </li></ul><ul><li>Due to increased oestrogen. </li></ul>Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.
    26. 26. <ul><li>Decrease membrane potential of myometrium. </li></ul><ul><li>Increase formation of gap junctions ,creating a functional syncytium. </li></ul><ul><li>Stimulate prostaglandin production by the chorion & decidua. </li></ul><ul><li>Because of that increase Ca 2+ influx into myometrial cells. </li></ul><ul><li>Increase number of oxytocin receptors & increase release of oxytocin from posterior pituitary. </li></ul><ul><li>Increase myometrial sensitivity. </li></ul><ul><li>Maternal CRH increase towards term & potentiates with oxytocin & prostaglandin action on myometrial contractility. </li></ul>Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.
    27. 27. <ul><li>Progesterone oestrogen foetally produced cortisol Increase CRF in foetus DHEA Increase ACTH Oestradiol increase androgen secretion from foetal adrenal cortex Increase oestrogens in placenta </li></ul>Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.
    28. 28. During 1 st stage of labour. <ul><li>This is the stage of cervical dilatation. </li></ul><ul><li>Uterine contractions also occur.-retraction is a major feature of uterine contractility. </li></ul><ul><li>That means the progressive shortening of uterine smooth muscle cells in the upper portion of uterus as labour progresses. As the contractions originate at fundus sweep down Force the foetal head against cervix cervical dilatation & thinning </li></ul>Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.
    29. 29. <ul><li>Stimulation of afferent nerves. Increase oxytocin secretion via reflex arc.( + feed back ) </li></ul><ul><li>Uterine contraction waves spread in myometrium & upper part contract strongly, due to active interaction of actin & myosin filaments of myometrium. </li></ul><ul><li>Smooth muscle fibers become shorter & thicker. Stretching and thinning of lower segment & draws the lower part. Cervical dilatation. </li></ul>Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.
    30. 30. <ul><li>Uterine contractions are involuntary & there’s relatively minimal extra uterine neuronal control. The contraction frequency vary during labour & with parity. </li></ul><ul><li>In the 2 nd stage. </li></ul><ul><li>Foetus forced out of uterine cavity & delivered through vagina. Resistance offered by the lower segment & cervix is overcome. </li></ul><ul><li>Spinal reflexes & voluntary contraction of muscle of abdominal wall & diaphragm. (Bearing down) </li></ul><ul><li>Delivery. </li></ul><ul><li>(Sometimes labour can occur without bearing down & a reflex.) </li></ul>Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.
    31. 31. <ul><li>In the 3 rd stage. </li></ul><ul><li>Placenta separated from decidual tissue of uterus & evacuated. </li></ul><ul><li>Retraction of uterus. </li></ul><ul><li>Myometrial contraction. Constriction of blood vessels. Prevent excessive bleeding. </li></ul>Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.

    124. 125. What is an Episiotomy ? Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP. Definition An episiotomy is a surgical incision made in the perineum, the area between the vagina and anus. Episiotomies are done during the second stage of labor to expand the opening of the vagina to prevent tearing of the area during the delivery of the baby.
    125. 126. Why ? <ul><li>An episiotomy is usually done during the labour process in order to deliver a baby without tearing the perineum and surrounding tissue. Reasons for an episiotomy include: </li></ul><ul><li>Evidence of maternal or fetal distress (i.e. no time to allow perineum to stretch). </li></ul><ul><li>The baby is premature or in breech position, and his/her head could be damaged by a tight perineum. </li></ul><ul><li>The baby is too large to be delivered without causing extensive tearing. </li></ul><ul><li>The delivery is being assisted by forceps. </li></ul><ul><li>The mother is too tired or unable to push. </li></ul><ul><li>Existing trauma to the perineum. </li></ul>Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.
    126. 127. Types of episiotomy <ul><li>An episiotomy may be classified into two types: </li></ul><ul><li>midline or median - refers to a vertical incision that is made from the lower opening of the vagina toward the rectum. This type of episiotomy usually heals well but may be more likely to tear and extend into the rectal area, called a third or fourth degree laceration. </li></ul><ul><li>mediolateral - refers to an incision that is made at a 45-degree angle from the lower opening of the vagina to either side. This type of episiotomy does not tend to tear or extend, but is associated with greater blood loss and may not heal as well. </li></ul>Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.

    128. 129. How to do it ? <ul><li>Anesthesia </li></ul><ul><li>Prior to an episiotomy being performed adequate anesthesia must be </li></ul><ul><li>administered </li></ul><ul><li>If the women has an epidural it must be popped-up accordingly or the perineum must be infiltrated with local anesthetic </li></ul><ul><li>Review general care principles  and apply antiseptic solution to the perineal area </li></ul><ul><li>Provide emotional support and encouragement. Use local infiltration with lignocaine or a pudendal block </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure there are no known allergies to Lignocaine or related drugs. </li></ul><ul><li>Infiltrate beneath the vaginal mucosa, beneath the skin of the perineum and deeply into the perineal muscle using about 10 mL 0.5% Lignocaine solution. </li></ul>Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.

    130. 131. Performing <ul><li>Large sharp straight scissors are the instrument of choice </li></ul><ul><li>If the episiotomy performed too far laterally it will not increase the diameter of the vulval outlet but may cause damage to the right Bartholin’s glands. </li></ul><ul><li>This could predispose to a decrease in vaginal lubrications or cyst formation . </li></ul><ul><li>If it is too small, it will not increase the diameter of the vulval outlet sufficiently to facilitate delivery and it may form a weak point in the perineal tissues from which a tear could extend </li></ul><ul><li>The episiotomy must be made in one single cut if it is enlarged by several small cut, a zig-zag incision line will be produced which will be difficult to repairer </li></ul><ul><li>The episiotomy should begin in the mid line at the Fourchette </li></ul>Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.
    131. 132. REPAIR OF EPISIOTOMY <ul><li>Apply antiseptic solution to the area around the episiotomy. </li></ul><ul><li>If the episiotomy is extended through the anal sphincter or rectal mucosa, manage as third or fourth degree tears, respectively. </li></ul><ul><li>Close the vaginal mucosa using continuous 2-0 suture </li></ul><ul><li>Start the repair about 1 cm above the apex (top) of the episiotomy. Continue the suture to the level of the vaginal opening; </li></ul><ul><li>At the opening of the vagina, bring together the cut edges of the vaginal opening; </li></ul><ul><li>Bring the needle under the vaginal opening and out through the incision and tie. </li></ul><ul><li>Close the perineal muscle using interrupted 2-0 sutures . </li></ul><ul><li>Close the skin using interrupted (or subcuticular) 2-0 sutures </li></ul>Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.

    137. 138. Controlled cord traction Clamp the cord close to the perineum using sponge forceps. Hold the clamped cord and the end of forceps with one hand. Place the other hand just above the woman’s pubic bone and stabilize the uterus by applying counter traction during controlled cord traction. This helps prevent inversion of the uterus. Keep slight tension on the cord and await a strong uterine contraction (2–3 minutes). Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.
    138. 139. When the uterus becomes rounded or the cord lengthens, very gently pull downward on the cord to deliver the placenta. Do not wait for a gush of blood before applying traction on the cord. Continue to apply counter traction to the uterus with the other hand. If the placenta does not descend during 30–40 seconds of controlled cord traction (i.e. there are no signs of placental separation), do not continue to pull on the cord: Gently hold the cord and wait until the uterus is well contracted again. If necessary, use a sponge forceps to clamp the cord closer to the perineum as it lengthens; With the next contraction, repeat controlled cord traction with counter traction. Never apply cord traction (pull) without applying counter traction (push) above the pubic bone with the other hand. Group A,16th Batch,FMS,USJP.
