Non Obstetrical Surgey for the Pregnant Patient


gestation presenting for outpatient lap chole Npo after MN NKDA Meds:PNV

No prior surgery SVDx2 uncomplicated deliveries PMH GERD with pregnancy Physical Exam Ht 163 cm Wt 90kg MP 2 airway Gravid uterus Exam otherwise unremarkable

FHTs 136 Plan GA: RSI Fetal Heart Tones before and after surgery Induction

Pre med: Fentanyl 50 mcg RSI: Propofol 200mg Roc 5 mg Sux 140mg Easy intubation VSS Left uterine displacement

Intra-op 10:47 am incision 11:11 am surgeon asks for OB stat to OR for suspected uterine rupture 11:17 OB in room for report 11:20 OB scrubbed in/emergency Csection performed After delivery OB asks Why wasnt I informed that a pregnant pt was

coming to the OR? Post-OP Healthy mom and baby OB broke scrub, saw pts chart stated: This pt is seen in my office why wasnt I informed she was having

surgery????? Most Common Procedures Laparoscopic cholecystectomy Cystoscopy Appendectomy Real Cases Over the years 24 week pregnant pt for breast bx

followed by mastectomy and port 2 weeks later 32 week pregnant burn pt for debridement and skin graft to back (prone positoning) 18 week pregnant pt for total thyroidectomy for thyroid ca 17 week ex lap for ovarian mass

(retained sponge from prior C-section 34 week pregnant pt for ORIF fifth finger fracture from fist fight Other Procedures Burn surgery Thyroidectomy

Mastectomy Ovarian mass Orthopedic injuries ACOG Guidelines Pregnant patient should not be denied indicated surgery regardless of trimester

Elective surgery should be postponed until after delivery If possible non urgent surgery should be performed in the second trimester when pre term contractions and spontaneous abortions are least likely Obstetric Provider

OB should be notified (must be) OB provider with C-section privileges should be immediately available Qualified individual for interpreting fhr patterns immediately available (Neonatology and L&D should be notified for viable fetus)

Guidelines for Fetal Monitoring Pre-viable fetus: FHR by Doppler pre and post op Viable fetus: FHR and contraction monitoring pre and post op to assess fetal well being and absence of contractions

FHR should be evaluated by qualified individual ACOG guidelines published 4/17 Intra Operative Monitoring May be appropriate when all of the

following apply 1. fetus is viable 2. physically possible 3. informed consent for emergency

C-section 4. nature of surgery would allow for access for C-Section Other issues May monitor pre viable fetus to facilitate positioning or oxygenation

C-section Tray immediately available Left Uterine Displacement After 18-20 weeks provide left uterine displacement to prevent aortocaval compression Goal is to reduce maternal hypotension and preserve placental

perfusion Tilt of at least 15 degrees NPO Guidelines Same as for nonpregnant patients Clear liquids 2 hours Solids 6-8 hours depending on fat content

Adjust for confounding factors: morbid obesity, difficult airway, diabetes RSI often performed Anesthesia No specific anesthetic agents are

contraindicated but historically midazolam and nitrous oxide have been avoided Regional anesthesia is preferable

Consider aspiration risk Optimize placental perfusion by optimizing hemodynamic stability and oxygenation Expect decreased fetal heart rate Hemodynamic Stability Uteroplacental unit does not have

autoregulation Placental perfusion directly related to maternal BP Goal: maintain maternal BP within 20% of basline Fluids Ephedrine Phenylephrine

Anesthesia Hyperoxia-not dangerous for fetus. PAO2 will not increase above 60mmhg Hypoxemia-bad Hypercarbia: acidosis Hypocarbia: Uterine artery vasoconstriction

Shift of hemoglobin oxygen disassociation curve Muscle Relaxant Reversal Neostigmine readily crosses placenta Glycopyrrolate does not Possible fetal bradycardia Consider Atropine 10-20 mcg/kg as

atropine readily crosses placenta Antibiotics Ancef Class B Clindamycin Class B Metronidazole Class B Unasyn Class B Vancomycin Class C

Ciprofloxacin Class C Gentamycin Class D Class A safe Class B no fetal risk in animal studies Class C not enough research to know Class D human risk involved VTE Prophylaxis Pregnancy: hypercoagulable state

Surgery: venostasis/hypercoagulabilty Prophylaxis should be considered for all pregnant patients undergoing surgery Maternal Cardiac Arrest Same drugs/same management as

nonpregnant Left uterine displacement Chest compressions higher on sternum All drugs administered above diaphragm If no response at 4 minutes-deliver the baby

Summary Preferable notification prior to day of surgery OB, neonatology,L&D,anesthesia,OR Pre-op FHT/contraction monitoring

Confirm all parties notified C-Section tray outside of room Post-Op appropriate monitoring for gestational age clear with OB before discharge
