MCQ Obstetrics 16

on with 0 comments

You are called to attend the delivery of a 24-year-old primiparous female. After a prolonged 18-hour labor requiring oxytocin (Pitocin) agumentation, she delivered a 4200 gm (9lb 4 oz) male infant. A vacuum-assisted delivery was performed because of maternal exhaustion, and the mother required repair of a third degree perineal laceration. Thirty minutes after you leave the delivery room, there are no other physicians in the hospital, and the delivery nurse urgently reports to you that the mother’s blood pressure is 80 mmHg systolic and her bed is soaked with blood.

The most likely cause of this problem is:

A.occult cervical lacerations.
C.uterine atony.
D.uterine rupture.
E.disseminated intravascular coagulopathy (DIC).
