Anticoagulant therapy and monitoring
Maternity normals
Coumadin (sodium warfarin) PT: 10–12 sec. (control). - FHR:120–160 BPM. Serum electrolytes
Antidote: The antidote for Coumadin is vitamin K. - Contractions: Normal frequency 2-5min, duration Heparin/Lovenox/Dalteparin PTT: 30–45 sec. (control). Antidote: The antidote for Heparin is protamine sulfate. - Amniotic fluid: 500–1200 ml (nitrozine urine-litmus Therapeutic level: 1.5–2 times the control. paper green/amniotic fluid-litmus paper blue). Therapeutic drug levels
Apgar scoring: A = appearance, P = pulses, G =
grimace, A = activity, R = reflexes (Done at 1 and 5 minutes with a score of 0 for absent, 1 for decreased, Hematology values
- AVA: The umbilical cord has two arteries and one vein. (Arteries car y deoxygenated blood. The vein Ectrode placement
carries oxygenated blood.)
