I. INTRODUCTION literature)
An ectopic pregnancy is one in which implantation occurs outside the uterine cavity. The implantation may occur on the surface of the ovary or in the cervix. The most common site (in approximately 95% of such pregnancies) is in the uterine tube. Of these uterine tube sites, approximately 80% occur in the ampullar portion, 12% occur in the isthmus, and 8% are interstitial or fimbrial. With ectopic pregnancy, fertilization occurs as usual in the distal third of the uterine tube. Immediately after the union of the ovum and the spermatozoon, the zygote begins to divide and grow normally. Unfortunately, because an obstruction is present, such as adhesion of the uterine tube from a previous infection (chronic salpingitis or pelvic inflammatory disease), congenital malformations, scars from tubal surgery, or a uterine tumor pressing the proximal end of the tube, the zygote cannot travel the length of the tube. It lodges at the strictured site along the uterine tube and implants there instead of in the uterus. Approximately 2% of pregnancies are ectopic; ectopic pregnancy is the second most frequent cause of bleeding in early pregnancy. The incidence is increasing because of the increasing rate of pelvic inflammatory disease, which leads to tubal scarring. Ectopic pregnancy occurs more frequently in women who smoke compared to those who do not. There is some evidence that intrauterine devices (IUDs) used for contraception may slow the transport of the zygote and lead to an increased of tubal or ovarian implantation. The incidence also increases following an in vitro fertilization. Women who have one ectopic pregnancy have a 10% to 20% chance that a subsequent pregnancy will also be ectopic. This is because salpingitis that leaves scarring is usually bilateral. Congenital anomalies such as webbing (fibrous bands) may also be bilateral. Surprisingly, oral contraceptives may reduce the possibility of ectopic pregnancy. (3 classification of ectopic pregnancy – pain, bleeding and abd tenderness) Assessment With ectopic pregnancy, there are no unusual symptoms at the time of implantation. The corpus luteum of the ovary continues to function as if the implantation were in the uterus. No menstrual flow occurs. A woman may experience the nausea and vomiting of early pregnancy, and pregnancy test for human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) will be positive. At weeks 6 to 12 of pregnancy (2 to 8 weeks after a missed menstrual period), the zygote grows large enough to rupture the slender uterine tube or the trophoblast cells break through the narrow base. Tearing and destruction of the blood vessels in the tube result. The extent of the bleeding that occurs depends on the number and size of the ruptured vessels. If implantation is in the interstitial portion of the tube (where the tube joins the uterus), the rupture can cause severe intraperitoneal bleeding. Fortunately, the incidence of tubal pregnancies is highest in the ampullar area (the distal third), where the blood vessels are smaller and profuse hemorrhage is less likely. However, continued bleeding from this area may in time result in a large amount of blood loss. Therefore, a ruptured ectopic pregnancy is serious regardless of the site of implantation. A woman usually expediencies a sharp, stabbing pain in one of her lower abdominal quadrants at the time of the rupture, followed by scan vaginal spotting. With placental dislodgement, progesterone secretion stops and the uterine decidua begins to slough, causing additional bleeding. The amount of bleeding evident with a ruptured ectopic pregnancy often does not reveal the actual amount present, however, because the products o conception from the ruptured tube and the accompanying blood may be expelled into the pelvic cavity rather than into the uterus. Therefore, this blood does not reach the vagina to become evident. If internal bleeding progresses to acute hemorrhage, a woman may experience lightheadedness and rapid pulse, signs of shock. When helping determine the possibility of an ectopic pregnancy, ask a woman whether she has pain or vaginal bleeding. Any woman with sharp abdominal pain and vaginal
spotting needs to be evaluated by her health care provider to rule out the possibility of ectopic pregnancy. Occasionally, a woman will move suddenly and move and pull one of her round ligaments, the anterior uterine supports. This can cause a sharp, but momentarily and innocent, lower quadrant pain. However, it would be rare for this phenomenon to be reported in connection with vaginal spotting. By the time a woman with a ruptured ectopic pregnancy arrives at the hospital of physician’s office, she may already be in severe shock, as evidenced by rapid, thready pulse, rapid respirations, and falling blood pressure. Leukocytosis may be present, not from infection but from trauma. Temperature is usually normal. A transvaginal sonogram will demonstrate the ruptured tube and blood collecting in the peritoneum. Either a falling hCG or serum progesterone suggests that pregnancy has ended. If the diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy is in doubt, a physician may insert a needle through the postvaginal fornix into the cul-de-sac under sterile conditions to see whether blood can be aspirated. A laparoscopy or culdoscopy can be used to visualize the uterine tube if the symptoms alone do not reveal a clear picture of what has happened. However, sonography alone usually reveals a clear-cut diagnostic picture. If a woman waits before seeking help, gradually her abdomen becomes rigid from peritoneal irritation. Her umbilicus may develop a bluish tinge (Cullen’s Sign). A woman may have continuing extensive or dull vaginal and abdominal pain; movement on the cervix on pelvic examination my cause excruciating pain. There may be pain in her shoulders from blood in the peritoneal cavity causing irritation to the phrenic nerve. A tender mass is usually palpable in Douglas’ cul-de-sac on vaginal examination. Therapeutic Management Although some ectopic pregnancies spontaneously end and then reabsorbed, requiring no treatment, it is difficult to predict when this will happen, so when an ectopic pregnancy is revealed by an early sonogram, some action is taken. If an ectopic pregnancy can be diagnosed before the tube has ruptured, it can be treated medically by oral administration of methotrexate and leucovorin. Methotrexate, a folic acid antagonist chemotherapeutic agent that attacks and destroys fast-growing cells. Because trophoblast and zygote growth is rapid, the drug is drawn to the site of ectopic pregnancy. Women are treated until a negative hCG titer is achieved. A hestrosalpingogram or sonogram is usually performed after the chemotherapy to assess whether the tube is fully patent. Mifepristone, an abortifacient, is also effective at causing sloughing of the tubal implantation site. The advantage of these therapies is that the tube is left intact, with no surgical scarring that could cause second ectopic implantation. If an ectopic pregnancy ruptures, it is an emergency situation. Keep in mind that the amount of blood evident is a poor estimate of the actual blood loss. A blood sample needs to be drawn immediately for hemoglobin level, tying, and cross-matching, and possibly hCG level for immediate pregnancy testing, if pregnancy has not yet been confirmed. Intravenous fluid using a large-gauge catheter to restore intravascular volume is begun. Blood then can be administered through this same line when matched. The therapy for ruptured ectopic pregnancy is laparoscopy to ligate the bleeding vessels and to remove or repair the damaged uterine tube. A rough suture line on the uterine tube may lead to another tubal pregnancy, so either the tube will be removed or suturing on the tube is done with microsurgical technique. If a tube is removed, a woman is theoretically only 50% fertile, because every other month, when she ovulates next to the removed tube, sperm cannot reach the ovum on that side. However, this is not reliable contraceptive measure. Research in rabbits has shown that translocation of ova can occur –that is, an ovum released from the right ovary can pass through the pelvic cavity to the opposite (left) uterine tube and become fertilized and vice versa.(salphigictomy-removal of the fallopian tube.)
As with miscarriage, women with Rh-negative blood should receive Rh (D) immune globulin (RhIG) after an ectopic pregnancy fro isoimmunization protection in future childbearing. (See Appendix for illustrations)
II. OBJECTIVES Generally, later than three weeks of orientation and exposure at the Perpetual Succour Hospital –Station 3B, the proponents should contribute to the practice of managing ectopic pregnancy cases in any clinical setting by utilizing the acceptable notions, skills, and outlooks that they will be achieving from this study. Specifically, later than three weeks, the proponents should: 1) devise a complete output on the specified client and condition through obtaining apt orientation and clear instructions from the clinical instructor on how to devise the study. 2) pool all data for printing and binding and finish the study before March 5, 2010, Friday, the scheduled date of presentation. 3) submit the final hard and soft copies of the output to the clinical instructor. 4) gather as a group for brainstorming of ideas making use of individual researches about the disease condition. 5) present the case study on the scheduled date. 6) defend the case study in front the panelists by answering the relevant questions thrown by them. 7) identify and describe the signs and symptoms of ectopic pregnancy. 8) map out and explain the disease process of ectopic pregnancy. 9) identify and describe the various management –for ectopic pregnancy.
10)gather again as a group for pointers and reactions from each member and from the clinical instructor after the case presentation.

Health Perception –Health Management “Health is wealth. Importante ni aron mabuhi, so that we could do everything we want” as verbalized by the patient. She scaled her health as 7/10. Patient said that if ever she or a member of her family is sick, they usually buy OTC drugs. They don’t really go to health center because they are renting an apartment far from a health center. They sometimes use herbal medicine such as “kalabo” w/c can be used for treatment of cough.
Nutritional –Metabolic Patient eats 3 meals a day. For breakfast, she eats fish, rice and drinks milk. For lunch she eats 1cup of rice, fish and drinks orange juice and for dinner she usually eats vegetables, a cup of rice and milk. Patient eats snack between meals. When she was admitted she said that her eating pattern is not the same before, she can only eat 2-2 ½ cup of rice for the 3meals compared to 3-4 cups of rice for the 3 meals before she was admitted
Elimination Prior to admission and during admission, patient’s elimination pattern is still the same. She urinates 4-5x a day with approximately 240- 250 ml per void. She defecates 4-5x a week. She said that she is constipated. Patient said that she noticed if she eats apple in the morning she can defecate an hour or two after.
She wakes up early every morning. Before going to work she strolls outside their apartment as her exercise. She spends 30mins- 1hr walking. At work, she usually rest during her break. She takes a nap every break time. Now that she is admitted her activity is limited because she needs rest due to her surgery.
Sleep –Rest Patient usually wakes up at 6-7 in the morning and sleep at around 10:30 in the evening. She can only take a nap sometimes. So far she doesn’t talk while sleeping but ‘’hagok’’ if she’s very stress from work. She also mentioned that previously she treat her insomnia by means of taking ‘’4G’’ but as of now she takes ferrous sulfate to treat her insomnia. During her admission, patient sleeping pattern was different because patient doesn’t have enough sleep due to some noise in the ward.
Cognitive –Perceptual The client can understand well. She responds calmly to the interviewers. She has no difficulties in all her senses. When she was admitted, she said she was exhausted.
Role –Relationship Patient aware that her responsibilities in the family is to be a good, loving, caring, understanding wife to her husband and to their future children. As a wife, she said that she takes care of her husband’s needs like cooking him for breakfast, preparing his food for work. She is very close to her husband, she even ask advices from her husband. She is not very close to her siblings because it’s been long time since
they’ve seen each other. In work, she believes that she’s almost responsible to all. She defines roles and responsibilities in life as a law and is to be followed accordingly. The client felt sadness after knowing that her baby has already gone. Her husband is always at her side to comfort her .
Value –Belief Patient doesn’t believe on horoscope as well as fortune/palm reading because she believes that we are the one making our future by means of self-decision making. She also believes that God has already planned our individual life. Patient is a protestant but considered herself as a catholic in general because she is one of the Christ believers but in terms of religious beliefs, she doesn’t worship saints and do the sign of the cross. During assessment, we observed that patient is religiously active.
Self-perception –Self-concept Patient describes herself as emotional, hard working and of course loving wife to her husband. She’s emotional, because according to her, she’s very sensitive (emotionally); hardworking, because she really focuses on her work; lastly, she’s loving wife, because she still have time for her husband although she’s workaholic.
Coping –Stress Patient stated that, ‘’A problem is part of our lives. It molds us to become stronger.’’ For her, problem is like a challenge that if without it; a person won’t fully enjoy and feel life’s accomplishments and satisfaction. She also mentioned during assessment that problems gives stress and makes a person very depress unless that certain person knows how to handle it. Her ways in coping up with problems/stressors are to always pray and ask God’s guidance; Work on it in order to solve it whether by herself or with the help of others.
Sexuality –Reproductive Patient stated that she had her first menstruation at the age of 13. Her menstruation is regular, usually lasts for 3 days, and she consumes at least 1 sanitary pad per day. She rated her sexual satisfaction as 9/10. .. … …. ….. …… ……

V. ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY (Female Reproductive System) The system consists of external and internal genitalia, which develop and function according to hormonal influences that affect fertility and childbearing. It also consists of urinary structures. External genitilia include the mons pubis, clitoris, vestibule, labia majora, labia minora, vaginal introitus, hymen, Bartholin’s gland, Skene’s gland, and the urethral meatus. Internal genitalia include the vagina, cervix, uterus, adjacent structures (adnexa), ovaries, and uterine tubes. Internal urinary structures include the ureters, bladder, and urethra. The functions of the female reproductive system are: Manufacturing and protective ova for fertilization Transporting the fertilized ovum for implantation and embryonic/fetal development Housing and nourishing the developing fetus. Regulating hormonal production and secretion of several sex hormones. Providing sexual stimulation and pleasure Providing a drainage route for the excretion of urine (urinary structures)

mefenamic acid (Dolfenal)
Mefenamic acid is a nonsteroid al antiinflammato ry drug (NSAID) which is an anthranilic acid derivative. It exhibits antiinflammato ry, analgesic and antipyretic activity by inhibiting prostaglan din synthesis in body tissues. Unlike most other nonsteroid al antiinflammato ry drugs, mefenamic acid appears to compete with prostaglan dins for binding at the prostaglan din receptor site and thus, potentially affect prostaglan dins that have already been formed. Binds to mu-opoid receptors. Inhibits reuptake of serotonin and norepineph rine in the CNS. Therapeuti

Parecoxib is a prodrug of valdecoxib. The mechanism of action of valdecoxib is by inhibition of cyclooxyge nase-2 (COX-2)mediated prostaglan din synthesis. Cyclooxyge nase is responsible for generation of prostaglan dins. Two isoforms, COX-1 and COX-2, have been identified. COX-2 is the isoform of the enzyme that has been shown to be induced by proinflammato ry stimuli and has been postulated to be primarily responsible for the synthesis of prostanoid mediators of pain, inflammati on and fever. At therapeutic doses,
