yea doesn't seem like the pt has any risk factors to cause her to have TR or MR....agreed echocardiogram next is management......after that make sure she doesn't push during delivery and use some forceps to assist her......


what the answer? d or e?


While I'm an RN, I do work "as needed" occasionally in an OB/GYN practice. There are many MA's that work there and this is what they do:

bring patients back to clinical area, get vital signs and urine specimans, patient's medical history (if new patient) and reason for being seen

draw blood for lab work, give injections (in our office, she would be giving Depo for contraception, hCg for infertility treatment, and Celestone for moms with preterm labor)

assist the male docs (we have 2 in the 7 doc group) with pelvic exams and assist all the docs with special procedures such as a LEEP or other minor surgery done "in office"

write out "routine prescriptions" such as refill on oral contraceptives, hormone replacement therapy, etc and get a couple months of samples for the patient when they are in for yearly exams
