am workin through my copy (just arrived) of ds1's notes

first question: what does SROM mean? (in context of show)

spontaneous rupture of membranes

Spontaneous Rupture of Membranes

Tutter Wed 27-Jun-07 12:04:21

thank you

next: VE (in context of VE findings/VE to assess progress)

vaginal exmaination

Tutter Wed 27-Jun-07 12:05:44

btw, there's a little circle before SROM - i take it means SROM didn't happen? (i had to have my waters broken by the mw)

Tutter Wed 27-Jun-07 12:06:37

and later it says "tutter reports ? SROM"

SoupDragon Wed 27-Jun-07 12:07:21

In that case,if in the context of a show, maybe it means there was no sign the membranes had gone...?

lulumama Wed 27-Jun-07 12:07:30

you must have told them you thought your waters had gone...and then did they check you ? and then they broke later ?

SoupDragon Wed 27-Jun-07 12:08:37

Did you think they'd gone and said that to the MW?

lulumama Wed 27-Jun-07 12:09:19

was your show quite liquidy??

Tutter Wed 27-Jun-07 12:09:53

hmm ok thanks. not sure. can't remember thinking they'd gone

sorry for drip-feed of questions, but next:

BO ++

ARM discussed

CTG commenced

lulumama Wed 27-Jun-07 12:10:55

not sure about BO ++

ARM - artificial rupture of membranes

CTG - monitoring of foetal heart rate and the contractions

Tutter Wed 27-Jun-07 12:11:43
