Because of the changes in the respiratory physiology in pregnancy (ie lozol 2.5 mg cheap arrhythmia beta blockers, a respiratory alkylosis with partially metabolic compensation), different thresholds for action exist (Table 27–1). During this period amnionitis occurs in 13% to 60%, and abruptio placentae occurs in 4% to 12%. Chorioamnionitis typically precedes fetal infection but this is not always the case, and therefore close clinical monitoring is required. Fetal morbidity and mortal- ity varies with gestational age and complications, particularly infection. Other serious fetal complications include necrotizing enterocolitis, intraventricular hemorrhage, and sepsis. Preterm infants born with sepsis have a mortality rate four times higher than those without sepsis. The primary patient complaint is experiencing a “gush” of fluid but some patients will report persistent leakage of fluid. Confirmatory findings include pooling of amniotic fluid in posterior fornix and/or leakage of fluid on Valsalva; positive nitrazine test of fluid (vaginal pH 4. Should the initial tests be ambiguous or negative, in the face of continued clinical suspicion other diagnostic modalities can be utilized. At the time of the initial evaluation, the patient’s cervical os should be visu- ally assessed for dilatation and possible prolapse of umbilical cord or fetal limb. In general, a digital examination of the cervix should be avoided since bacterial may be theoretically inoculated with an examination. For those gestations that are previable, observation in the hospital or careful follow-up with an obstetri- cian is advisable. Maternal: The criteria for the diagnosis of clinical chorioamnionitis include maternal pyrexia, tachycardia, leukocytosis, uterine tenderness, malodorous vagi- nal discharge, and fetal tachycardia. During inpatient observation, the woman should be regularly examined for such signs of intrauterine infection and an abnormal parameter or a combination of them may indicate intrauterine infec- tion. The frequency of maternal and fetal assessments (temperature, pulse, and fetal heart rate auscultation) should be between 4 and 8 hours. Fetal: Electronic fetal heart rate tracing is useful when the gestation is considered viable, because fetal tachycardia may represent a sign of fetal infection and is fre- quently used in the clinical definition of chorioamnionitis in some studies. However, checking intermit- tent fetal heart activity for previable gestation is preferable. Use of steroids: A meta-analysis of 15 randomized controlled trials involving more than 1400 women with preterm rupture of the membranes demonstrated that ante- natal corticosteroids reduced the risks of respiratory distress syndrome. This is gener- ally administered at 24 weeks or beyond in the absence of clinical infection. There was a significant reduc- tion in the numbers of babies born within 48 hours and 7 days. Neonatal infection was significantly reduced in the babies whose mothers received antibiotics.
