It should immediately be stipulated: without the need of physicians will never prescribe a pregnant dropper. If, nevertheless, a woman was offered a "puncture" in the situation, then there really is a need. Another thing is that many women refuse to install a dropper - and this is their right. But in this case, it is worthwhile to weigh the pros and cons several times before finally giving up the proposed treatment.
Most often, pregnant women are prescribed a dropper because of severe toxicosis. So, toxicosis has three stages: mild - when a woman vomits up to 5 times a day; average - nausea is present 5-10 times during the day; when severe, vomiting manifests itself in the pregnant woman about 10 times a day. Even with an average severity of toxicosis, it is recommended that a pregnant woman be hospitalized and "punctured". In this case, the drip administration of the drugs is aimed at cleansing the body. But if the toxicosis is present in severe form, hospitalization and intravenous drip introduction becomes a tough necessity. Intensive vomiting in severe toxicosis provokes dehydration of the body, "Washing away" of the substances necessary for life activity from it. This problem is also intended to solve the installation of a pregnant dropper: with her help a woman is injected with saline, glucose, vitamins and salt. Intravenous drip introduction in this case is also necessary for sedation, calm and relaxation of the nervous system, treatment and improvement of the gastrointestinal tract.
Indication for the establishment of a dropper a woman in the situation may become a threat of termination of pregnancy. If the tone of the uterus is elevated, after 12 weeks the doctor can prescribe droppers with magnesium. This drug helps to relax the uterus and improves utero-placental blood flow. At later stages of pregnancy, if there is a threat of miscarriage, drugs are used, reducing the contractile activity of the uterus by affecting its specific receptors. The most common of these is the drug Ginipral, which is prescribed from the second trimester of pregnancy for use with a dropper. Assign a dropper pregnant and with fetal hypoxia, and with premature ripening of the placenta.
A dropper of a pregnant woman can be offered on the eve of the birth itself. This happens if the prospective mummy has already been given prostaglandin pessaries (substances that soften the cervix and cause contractions), and the birth does not want to start anyway. In this case, the pregnant woman is put a dropper with Oxytocin, which is a synthetic substance, similar in effect to the hormone produced by the body, responsible for contractions. The oxytocin dropper is placed only in the event that the waters are gone, but there is no contraction; not earlier than 6 hours after the introduction of pessaries. Oxytocin is capable of provoking contractions, and thus the process of delivery.
If a pregnant woman is prescribed a dropper, in no case should you refuse immediately and flatly. She always has the opportunity to get acquainted with the annotation to the proposed for the introduction of the drug. In addition, the doctor should explain in detail to the pregnant woman, for what purpose she is assigned this or that drug for drip, what are his indications, whether it causes any side effects and whether the baby is not harmful. If a woman has any doubts, she always has the opportunity to consult with another specialist.
