What is the difference between obstetric and nonobstetric?

Why is it important to know if a service is for an obstetric or nonobstetic patient? Can someone possibly give me an example of a CPT code for both an obstetric and nonobstretric service or procedure?

I am stumped right now! Can you help me out so I can look at these and see exactly what it means and how it is done? Thank you. Any help is appreciated.

Different price code. Many women continue to see their obstetrician for all their care. If they have bronchitis and are pregnant, the doctor will be paid more than if he is seeing the same patient who is not pregnant.  (+ info)

What is better obstetric or vaginal ultrasound?

In the beginning of my pregnancy, I had 2 different ultrasound from different doctors. One doctor did a vaginal ultrasound and another did an obstetric ultrasound. Both came out with different due dates. Who should I believe?

My OB told me that in the beginning, the vaginal ultrasound is the most accurate.  (+ info)

How long does it take Ursodeoxycholic acid to work when you have Obstetric Cholestasis?

I have started taking Ursodeoxycholic acid today as i have been told I have Obstetric Cholestasis Just wondering if i'm going to be able to sleep tonight or not? I am being induced on sat and am sooo tired cause I've not slept very much in over a week.Just wondering if anyone knows or has had experience with this. Thanks for your answers.

I Googled this for you:

There is no cure for obstetric cholestasis. As mentioned, the condition is not usually serious but can be distressing. Symptoms go once you have the baby. The following may be advised by your specialist which may help.
General measures

Some women have found that keeping cool helps to ease the itch. Tips to do this include: lowering the thermostat in your house, keep your body uncovered at night, take cool showers and baths, soak your feet or hands in ice water. These measures may give some temporary relief, particularly before going to bed when the itch may ease enough to allow you to fall asleep. A bland moisturiser cream may also give some temporary relief from itch.
Ursodeoxycholic acid

This is a naturally occurring bile acid and is used as a medication. Strictly speaking, it is not licensed for pregnant women, but has often been prescribed. The logic is that taking this drug may help to improve the function of the liver and help to reduce the bile acid level in the bloodstream. This may then ease symptoms (and may possibly reduce any possible increased risk of pregnancy complications).

However, the research evidence to support the use of this drug is not strong. Whilst some doctors believe it helps, some small studies have concluded that it does not help. A current national guideline on obstetric cholestasis states ... "there are insufficient data to support the widespread use of ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) outside of clinical trials." So, it is a treatment that is being studied and may be used, but more research is needed to clarify if it is helpful or not.  (+ info)

What happens if you get sleep paralysis and someone else is in the room?

I just looked at a few videos of Sleep Paralysis and I heard that you are paralised and you see visions and stuff. What would happen if a real person was awake when you were having sleep paralysis, what would the awake person see?

My husband has been in the room many times while I have had it and nothing happens he just thinks im sleeping normally ... I have asked him to wake me if he notices me breathing strangely because I breathe really deep and loud to try and signal him to wake me up.  (+ info)

How can being stabbed in the back lead to paralysis of the right lower extremity?

This is a question in a case study I have to do for my physio lab, the patient was stabbed in the back at the mid-thoracic level and close to the midline. She lost all sensory functions in her right leg. Why would she exhibit flaccid paralysis first and then spastic paralysis?

There are three spinal cord tracts that most doc's are concerned with. The spinothalmic tract supplies pain and temperature sensation and crosses over to opposite side of the body every few segments. If you stab this tract at level T6 on the left or in the middle where the tract is crossing over to the right, you loose this sensation on that entire side of the body.
Damage in the spinal cord itself would be considered an upper motor neuron lesion which has the symptoms of increase reflexes and no fasiculaton of the muscle(flaccid). There is a difference between the symptoms immediate and late due to the initally swelling around the nerve decreasing and the further demylinization of the damaged nerve  (+ info)

What are some effective ways to get rid of sleep paralysis?

Since I started college in the fall I have been getting sleep paralysis episodes. Some where I know I'm awake I just can't move or open my eyes. Others when something is laying on top of me telling me its going to kill me and I can't get away and I can't move, open my eyes and breathing is difficult. Also, I even have ones where I can hear someone walking toward and into my room but I can't move.

What are some effective ways to get rid of sleep paralysis?

Bad sleep habits can contribute to sleep paralysis, and it makes sense that your sleep schedule might have been disturbed since you began college. Try to find ways to make your sleep more restful, with fewer interruptions.

When you have sleep paralysis, the most important thing is not to panic. Everyone is paralyzed during REM sleep; most people just don't notice it, most of the time. When sleep paralysis happens, you have started to awaken but the paralysis that is a natural part of REM has not yet worn off. It's essentially a signal that your body is not quite ready to wake up, and if you accept that fact and be patient, the experience should be a lot less unpleasant. It's important to understand that what you're experiencing isn't dangerous. The feeling of something trying to kill you, and having difficulty breathing, is largely created by your mind. You may not be in the most comfortable position, but you are physically okay, and if there was something truly wrong, your body would wake you up. Your mind is exaggerating the discomfort your body is feeling, and you'd be surprised at the strong effect that a little positive thinking and self-confidence can have on the experience.  (+ info)

What causes Sleep Paralysis and how can i cure it?

Once in a while I awake from a nap or deep sleep and i'm unable to move, i struggle with my breathing and it feels like there's an enourmous weight pressing on my chest. I feel terrified, and on top of this, everytime i have this paralysis, i can see a tall, shadowy figure at the end of my bed. How can i cure this terrifying sensation?

ive had that before. dont listen to anyone if they say ghosts or whatever lol. LOLLOLO. its just so f'ing stupid. and dont waste time praying. it doesnt work. all it is is your body is a sleep state but your mind in a semi concious dream state. first. dont be scared of anything. becuase theres nothing really there, its just the same as a nightmare... forget about anything like that and that will eliminate any "scary figures". and just meditate before u fall asleep and get yourself into a good state of mind. things like whats happening to you is usually stress related. so try to chill out.  (+ info)

What is a name of a paralysis condition caused by being stabbed in the back?

What is a name of a paralysis condition caused by being stabbed in the back (the spine)? I a condition where only the lower body is paralyzed, basically one that makes someone need a wheelchair.
