Case Presentation Abruptio Placenta

This is a case of a teenage mother who gave birth to a premature baby (37 weeks old) that had serious complications during pregnancy that lead to premature labor and bleeding. The patient diagnose for abruption placenta. Abruptio Placenta is premature separation of the normally implanted placenta after the 20th week of pregnancy, typically with severe hemorrhage .An increase risk of placenta abruption has been demonstrated in patient younger than 20 years old and those older than 35 year old. Placenta may detach incompletely sometimes just 10 to 20 percent or completely and the cause is unknown .Women who have high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes or rheumatoid disease and women who use cigarette and cocaine are more likely to develop his complication. A. BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Abruptio placenta remains a major cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality globally, though of most serious concern in the developing world. As most known causes of abruptio placenta are either preventable or treatable, an increased frequency of the condition remains a source of medical concern. Normally the placenta is located in the upper part of the uterus firmly attached to the uterine wall. In abruption placenta, the placenta detaches from the uterine wall prematurely, causing the uterus to bleed and reducing the fetus supply of oxygen and nutrients. Patients with abruption placenta typically present with bleeding, uterine contractions and fetal distress .A significance cause of third-trimester bleeding associated with both fetal and maternal morbidity and mortality, abruption placenta must be considered whenever bleeding is encountered in the second half of pregnancy. 1

B. SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY The importance of this study is for us student to know more about abruption placenta, its causes and the appropriate interventions should undertake to prevent this complication among pregnant women and to further enhance the knowledge of the public, specially those pregnant mother. We as student nurse valued more the importance of prenatal check up, In order to avoid abruption placenta and other pregnancy complication and to lessen the fetal and maternal mortality death. Placenta is the source of life of the baby in order to achieve the stability of the baby in the womb. Strict monitoring must be observed. It is important that during 20-30 weeks of AOG the mother must undergo ultrasound. Just to ensure the safety delivery of both the lives of the mother and the baby.


This case study covers Abruptio Placenta which is the partial or complete separation of the placenta, normally the placenta is located in the upper part of the uterus firmly attached to the uterine wall. In abruption placenta the placenta detaches from the uterine wall causing the uterus to bleed and reducing the fetus supply of oxygen and nutrients, therefore pre-natal check-up are important to the well being of the mother and the baby.

Hildegard Peplau Interpersonal Relations Model (1952) She defined Nursing as an interpersonal process of therapeutic interactions Between an individual who is sick or in need of health services and a nurse Especially educated to recognize, respond to the need for help.

Dr. Peplau emphasized the nurse-client relationship as the foundation of nursing practice. At the time, her research and emphasis on the give-and-take of nurse-client relationships was seen by many as revolutionary. She described the nurse-patient relationship as a four-phase phenomenon. Each phase is unique and has distinguished contributions on the outcome of the nurse-patient interaction. We applied this theory because in order for our patient to trust us, we strongly believe we need to build a good relationship with our patient to get accurate information and we can give the right care. Patient DORA at a young age experienced losing her son that she needed someone to talk to. She needs an emotional support so she can face reality that her son had passed away. By giving her therapeutic interaction it lessen her grief. 4

Self Care Theory Dorothea Orem (1971) Individuals, families, groups and communities need to be taught self-care.

Orem defined Nursing as The act of assisting others in the provision and management of self-care to maintain/improve human functioning at home level of effectiveness. The theory focuses on activities that adult individuals perform on their own behalf to maintain life, health and wellbeing. It has a strong health promotion and maintenance focus. This theory applied because nursing is human service and nurses design interventions to provide self-care action for sustaining health. We applied this theory in order for patient DORA to have an independent function and health teaching like: self care, proper hygiene, negative effect of smoking & healthy lifestyle. 5

Martha Rogers Concept of Science of Unitary Human Beings, And Principles of Homeodynamics

Nursing is an art and science that is humanistic and humanitarian. It is directed toward the unitary human and is concerned with the nature and direction of human development. The goal of nurses is to participate in the process of change. Nursing interventions seek to promote harmonious interaction between persons and their environment, strengthen the wholeness of the Individual and redirect human and environmental patterns or organization to achieve maximum health.

We applied this theory to increase patient awareness in her surroundings and environment. Cleaning the environment will help to prevent spreading of communicable disease.

Maternal cigarette smoking as a risk factor for placental abruption, placenta previa, and uterine bleeding in pregnancy. Department of Epidemiology, School of Public Health, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA. The authors carried out an epidemiologic study to evaluate the role of maternal cigarette smoking as a potential risk factor for placental abruption, placenta previa, and uterine bleeding of unknown etiology in pregnancy. Data for this prospective cohort study were obtained from women seeking prenatal care at any of the two tertiary, seven regional, or 17 community hospitals in the province of Nova Scotia, Canada, between January 1, 1986, and December 31, 1993. A total of 87,184 pregnancies (among 61,667 women) were registered in the database. Women who smoked during pregnancy (33%) were compared with nonsmokers, and all women were followed until the termination of pregnancy. Placental abruption was indicated in 9.9 per 1,000 pregnancies, while placenta previa and uterine bleeding of unknown etiology were indicated in 3.6 and 58.9 per 1,000 pregnancies, respectively. Women who smoked had a twofold increase in the risk of abruption (relative risk = 2.05, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.75-2.40) in comparison with nonsmokers, while the relative risk for placenta previa was 1.36 (95% CI 1.04-1.79). However, cigarette smoking was not found to be associated with uterine bleeding of unknown etiology (relative risk = 1.01, 95% CI 0.94-1.08). There was no evidence for an increased risk of uteroplacental bleeding disorders with increasing numbers of cigarettes smoked. All analyses were adjusted for potentially confounding factors through logistic regression models based on the method of generalized estimating equations. The study confirms a positive association between cigarette smoking and placental abruption and a weak association with placenta previa but not with other uterine bleeding. The distinct pattern of results for placental abruption, placenta previa, and uterine bleeding of unknown origin suggests that these three uteroplacental bleeding disorders do not have a common etiology in relation to cigarette smoking.

Case Presentation Abruptio Placenta


The placenta is an organ unique to mammals that connects the developing fetus to the uterine wall. The placenta supplies the fetus with oxygen and food, and allows fetal waste to be disposed via the maternal kidneys. The word placenta comes from the Latin for cake, ]in reference to its round, flat appearance in humans. Protherial (egg-laying) and metatherial (marsupial) mammals produce a choriovitelline placenta that, while connected to the uterine wall, provides nutrients mainly derived from the egg sac. The placenta develops from the same sperm and egg cells that form the fetus, and functions as a fetomaternal organ with two components, the fetal part (Chorion frondosum), and the maternal part (Decidua basalis).

STRUCTURES Placenta averages 22 cm (9 inch) in length and 22.5 cm (0.81 inch) in thickness (greatest thickness at the center and become thinner peripherally). It typically weighs approximately 500 grams (1 lb). It has a dark reddish-blue or maroon color. It connects to the fetus by an umbilical cord of approximately 5560 cm (2224 inch) in length that contains two arteries and one vein. The umbilical cord inserts into the chorionic plate (has an eccentric attachment).

Case Presentation Abruptio Placenta

DEVELOPMENT The placenta begins to develop upon implantation of the blastocyst into the maternal endometrium. The outer layer of the blastocyst becomes the trophoblast which forms the outer layer of the placenta. This outer layer is divided into two further layers: the underlying cytotrophoblast layer and the overlying syncytiotrophoblast layer. The syncytiotrophoblast is a multinucleate continuous cell layer which covers the surface of the placenta. It forms as a result of differentiation and fusion of the underlying cytotrophoblast cells, a process which continues throughout placental development. The syncytiotrophoblast (otherwise known as syncytium), thereby contributes to the barrier function of the placenta.The placenta grows throughout pregnancy. Development of the maternal blood supply to the placenta is suggested to be complete by the end of the first trimester of pregnancy (approximately 1213 weeks)

The perfusion of the intervillous spaces of the placenta with maternal blood allows the transfer of nutrients and oxygen from the mother to the fetus and the transfer of waste products and carbon dioxide back from the fetus to the mother. Nutrient transfer to the fetus is both actively and passively mediated by proteins called nutrient transporters that are expressed within placental cells. Adverse pregnancy situations, such as those involving maternal diabetes or obesity can increase or decrease levels of nutrient transporters in the placenta resulting in overgrowth or restricted growth of the fetus. When the fetus is born, its placenta begins a physiological separation spontaneous expulsion afterwards (and for this reason is also called the afterbirth). In humans, the umbilical cord is routinely clamped and severed prior to the delivery of the placenta, often within seconds or minutes of birth, a medical protocol known as 'active management of third stage' which has been called into question by advocates of natural birth and 'passive management of third stage. The site of the former umbilical cord attachment in the center of the front of the abdomen is known as the navel.
