Abdominal Bruising
  • She was immediately transported to a trauma center where she was noted to have a “seat belt sign,” with abdominal bruising noted along her abdomen. She was also found to have several soft-tissue contusions and nonoperative orthopedic injuries.[thejns.org]
Periorbital Edema
  • Other findings were left periorbital edema with a small amount of retrobulbar air, ethmoidal fluid, and facial fractures.[pubs.rsna.org]
Suicidal Ideation
  • Pregnant women, in the appropriate clinical context, should have the possibility of suicidal ideations addressed.[reliasmedia.com]

  • Results of the physical examination were unremarkable, with full strength noted in all extremities and a soft, sunken fontanelle. The patient was discharged to home on Day 8 of life in stable condition.[thejns.org]
Microscopic Hematuria
  • In evaluation of the urinary tract, microscopic hematuria without accompanying signs of a major injury is usually benign and requires no further workup of the kidney or bladder.[pubs.rsna.org]

Coagulation Factor Increased
  • False dilutional anemia may be diagnosed; potentially false diagnosis of infection based on WBC; change in coagulation factors increases risk for thromboembolic problems, especially with immobilization.[reliasmedia.com]

  • Flattened T waves, possible inversion in lead III, possible Q waves in III and AVF.[reliasmedia.com]
Brain Edema
  • Cranial ultrasound demonstrated a huge subarachnoidal hemorrhage ( n 1), subdural hematoma ( n 1), brain edema with inversion of the diastolic flow ( n 1) and severe ischemic changes ( n 1).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • Failure to observe proper observation or treatment protocols could result in further injury to the mother and child. If appropriate treatment protocols are not followed, this would be an indication of negligent staff, negligent monitoring or both.[melvinfirm.com]
  • Get clear, concise descriptions and evidence-based treatment guidelines for a full range of clinical conditions, ranging from the common to the unusual.[books.google.es]

  • In 4% to 10% of cases, the etiology appears to be pure intrapartum hypoxia. Intrapartum hypoxia superimposed on antepartum risk factors may account for up to 25% of the moderate to severe encephalopathies, according to one cohort.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
