Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What part of the baby is involved in shoulder dystocia?

    • A.

      Head

    • B.

      Chest

    • C.

      Anterior shoulder

    • D.

      Posterior shoulder

    Correct Answer
    C. Anterior shoulder
    Explanation
    Shoulder dystocia is a complication that occurs during childbirth when the baby's shoulder becomes stuck behind the mother's pubic bone. In this situation, the anterior shoulder, which is the front shoulder, is involved in shoulder dystocia. This can cause difficulties in delivering the baby and may require special maneuvers or interventions to safely deliver the baby.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    According to a survey, how many shoulder dystocia cases are not predicted?

    • A.

      30%

    • B.

      40%

    • C.

      50%

    • D.

      60%

    Correct Answer
    C. 50%
    Explanation
    The answer is 50% because the question asks how many shoulder dystocia cases are not predicted. This implies that the percentage refers to the cases that were not predicted, rather than the cases that were predicted. Therefore, the correct answer is 50%, indicating that half of the shoulder dystocia cases are not predicted.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which of the following factors involve risk for shoulder dystocia?

    • A.

      Previous shoulder dystocia

    • B.

      Increased BMI

    • C.

      Fast labor

    • D.

      Diabetes

    Correct Answer
    C. Fast labor
    Explanation
    Fast labor can increase the risk of shoulder dystocia. When labor progresses rapidly, there may not be enough time for the baby's shoulders to properly rotate and pass through the birth canal. This can result in the baby's shoulder becoming stuck behind the mother's pubic bone, leading to shoulder dystocia. This complication can be dangerous for both the mother and the baby, as it can cause injury to the baby's nerves and bones, as well as excessive bleeding for the mother. Therefore, fast labor is considered a risk factor for shoulder dystocia.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which of the following options are the warning signs of a shoulder dystocia case?

    • A.

      Slow Progress in Labor

    • B.

      'Turtle neck' sign

    • C.

      More painful labor

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Shoulder dystocia is a complication during childbirth where the baby's shoulder gets stuck behind the mother's pubic bone. Warning signs of shoulder dystocia during childbirth include slow progress in labor, the 'turtle sign' where the baby's head retracts after crowning. One of the warning signs of shoulder dystocia is more painful labor. This is because the baby's shoulder being stuck can cause increased pressure and stretching in the birth canal, leading to more intense pain for the mother. The other options, such as long 1st stage of labor, 'turtle neck' sign, and long 2nd stage of labor, may also be associated with shoulder dystocia.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    McRoberts maneuver helps in resolving what percentage of shoulder dystocia?

    • A.

      70%

    • B.

      80%

    • C.

      90%

    • D.

      100%

    Correct Answer
    C. 90%
    Explanation
    The McRoberts maneuver is a technique used to resolve shoulder dystocia during childbirth. It involves flexing the mother's legs tightly against her abdomen, which helps to open up the pelvis and allows for easier delivery of the baby's shoulder. Studies have shown that the McRoberts maneuver is successful in resolving shoulder dystocia in approximately 90% of cases.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The most effective maneuver to resolve shoulder dystocia is

    • A.

      McRobert's

    • B.

      McRoberts maneuver

    • C.

      McRoberts

    • D.

      McRoberts position

    Correct Answer
    C. McRoberts
    Explanation
    The most effective maneuver to resolve shoulder dystocia is the McRoberts maneuver. This technique involves flexing the mother's thighs tightly against her abdomen, which helps to rotate the pelvis and widen the birth canal. By doing so, it creates more space for the baby's shoulders to pass through, allowing for a successful delivery and preventing any potential complications or injuries.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What part of the baby is given suprapubic pressure?

    • A.

      Anterior aspect of the posterior arm

    • B.

      Posterior aspect of the anterior arm

    • C.

      Anterior aspect of the anterior arm

    • D.

      Posterior aspect of the posterior arm

    Correct Answer
    C. Anterior aspect of the anterior arm
    Explanation
    Suprapubic pressure is typically applied to the anterior aspect of the anterior arm during the process of delivering a baby. This technique is used to help facilitate the delivery of the baby's anterior shoulder in cases where it becomes impacted during childbirth.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    If McRoberts and suprapubic pressure are ineffective, which position will be there for the woman?

    • A.

      All fours

    • B.

      Kneeling

    • C.

      Sleeping

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. All fours
    Explanation
    If McRoberts maneuver (flexing the woman's legs towards her abdomen) and suprapubic pressure (applying pressure to the woman's lower abdomen) are ineffective in assisting with delivery, the woman will be positioned on all fours. This position, also known as the hands and knees position, can help to relieve pressure on the woman's back and allow for better alignment of the baby's head with the birth canal, facilitating delivery.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which of the following is the most common injury to the baby in the case of shoulder dystocia?

    • A.

      Hypoxic Ischaemic Brain Injury

    • B.

      Death

    • C.

      Brachial Plexus Injury

    • D.

      Humerus & Clavicle Fractures

    Correct Answer
    C. Brachial Plexus Injury
    Explanation
    Shoulder dystocia is a complication during childbirth where the baby's shoulder gets stuck behind the mother's pelvic bone. This can result in injury to the baby's brachial plexus, a network of nerves that control movement and sensation in the arm and hand. Brachial plexus injury is the most common injury associated with shoulder dystocia, as the nerves can be stretched or torn during the delivery process. This injury can lead to weakness or paralysis in the affected arm.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which of the following documents are required at the time of birth? Choose more than one.

    • A.

      Time the head was born

    • B.

      Who was present

    • C.

      What maneuvers were performed and when

    • D.

      Which shoulder was anterior

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Time the head was born
    B. Who was present
    C. What maneuvers were performed and when
    D. Which shoulder was anterior
    Explanation
    The given answer options are all relevant documents that may be required at the time of birth. The time the head was born is important for recording the exact time of birth. Knowing who was present can be important for legal and medical purposes. Documenting the maneuvers performed during the delivery and when they were performed can provide important information about the birthing process. Finally, noting which shoulder was anterior can be important for assessing the position of the baby during birth.
