    • D.

      G2 P8301

    Correct Answer
    C. G2 P0010
    Explanation
    The answer "G2 P0010" indicates that Ms. P. is currently pregnant for the second time (Gravida 2) and has had one full-term pregnancy (Para 1) with no living children. The "P0010" part indicates that she has had one previous preterm birth and no living children. This information suggests that Ms. P. has had one previous pregnancy that ended in a spontaneous abortion and one previous pregnancy that ended prematurely.

  • 2. 

    Ms. Z. has a 5-year old child who was full-term at birth. Since that time she has had an infant who was stillborn at 38 weeks and a spontaneous abortion that occurred at 13 weeks. She is currently 7 months pregnant. G4 P1111

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    G (Gravida) is 4, indicating the total number of pregnancies.
    P (Para) is further detailed:
    Term births (T) are 2, representing two deliveries at 37 weeks and onward.
    Preterm births (P) are 0, indicating no preterm deliveries.
    Abortions (A) are 1, denoting one spontaneous or elective abortion.
    Living children (L) are 1, signifying one living child.

    So, the representation would be - obstetric history G4 P2011.

  • 3. 

    Ms. M. has had 3 pregnancies and is pregnant again. (At home, she has full-term twins and a child born at 36 weeks.) She also has had a fetus that spontaneously aborted at 10 weeks. G4 P2113

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The G4 P2113 designation indicates that Ms. M. has had four pregnancies (G4) with two full-term births (P2), one preterm birth (P1), one abortion/miscarriage before 20 weeks (P1), and three pregnancies that did not result in live births (P3).

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Ms. K. has 5 living children who were full-term infants and also had 2 spontaneous abortions at 15 and 17 weeks respectively. G7 P7201

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The answer is false because the statement does not provide enough information to determine if Ms. K. has had any living children. It only states that she has had 2 spontaneous abortions at 15 and 17 weeks, but it does not mention any living children. Therefore, we cannot conclude whether she has any living children or not based on the given information.

  • 5. 

    Gravidity and parity are also known as gravida and para.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Gravidity refers to the number of times a woman has been pregnant, regardless of the outcome of those pregnancies. Parity, on the other hand, refers to the number of pregnancies that have reached 20 weeks or more, regardless of whether the baby was born alive or stillborn. Gravida and para are the medical terms used to describe gravidity and parity respectively. Therefore, it is true that gravidity and parity are also known as gravida and para.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Para Gravida is also related to heart problems.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Para Gravida is also related to heart problems" is false. Para Gravida refers to a woman who has had one or more pregnancies, regardless of the outcome. It does not have any direct relation to heart problems. The term is used in medical contexts to describe a woman's obstetric history.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Ms. Z. has a 6-year old child who was full-term at birth. Since that time she has had an infant who was stillborn at 26 weeks and a spontaneous abortion that occurred at 13 weeks. She is currently 6 months pregnant. G4 P80111

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The answer is False because the given information states that Ms. Z is currently 6 months pregnant, which contradicts the statement that she had a stillborn infant at 26 weeks and a spontaneous abortion at 13 weeks. If she is currently 6 months pregnant, it means that she has not had any pregnancy complications or losses at this stage.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Ms. S. is pregnant. She has had three deliveries at term, one preterm delivery, and two abortions. She has four living children. G7 P3124

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The answer is true because the G7 P3124 notation indicates that Ms. S. is currently pregnant and has had a total of seven pregnancies. The "G" stands for gravida, which refers to the number of pregnancies, and the number after it indicates the total number of pregnancies. The "P" stands for para, which refers to the number of pregnancies that have reached viable gestational age, and the numbers after it indicate the number of full-term deliveries, preterm deliveries, and abortions. In this case, the notation indicates that Ms. S. has had three full-term deliveries, one preterm delivery, and two abortions, resulting in four living children.

    Correct Answer
    A. G6 P3124
    Explanation
    The answer G6 P3124 indicates that Ms. S. has had a total of six pregnancies, with four living children. The "G" refers to the number of pregnancies, which in this case is six. The "P" refers to the outcome of the pregnancies, with the first number indicating the number of full-term deliveries (3 in this case), the second number indicating the number of preterm deliveries (1 in this case), and the third number indicating the number of pregnancies that ended in abortions (2 in this case). The final number indicates the number of living children (4 in this case).

    • D.

      G3 P8392

    Correct Answer
    B. G9 P7027
    Explanation
    The correct answer is G9 P7027. "G" represents the total number of pregnancies, including both living and non-living pregnancies. In this case, Ms. T. has had a total of 9 pregnancies (7 living children + 2 spontaneous abortions). "P" represents the outcome of these pregnancies. The first number after "P" represents the number of full-term infants (7 in this case), and the second number represents the number of preterm infants (0 in this case). The last two numbers represent the number of living children (2 in this case) and the number of children who have died (7 in this case).
