Want To Ask About The Location Of The Fetus
Afternoon doc I want to ask what is meant by balt fued + and balt + on the location of the fetus in the MCH book of pregnant women.
Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com.
Balt, ball, or also Ballo is an abbreviation of the word ballottement. Balotemen is one sign and examination of the possibility of pregnancy, including:
Uterus or stomach enlargement
changes in the lips of the Uterus
Braxton hick contractions, which are irregular uterine contractions
Ballotement, is a reflection that occurs when the examiner's index finger taps the fetus that floats in the uterus, this causes the fetus to swim away and return to its original position / move freely.
Blemishes and goodells are softening of the area that brings the cervix and the uterus together
Chadwick is a bluish mark in the vaginal area and vulva
If your Balt sign is positive, it indicates that the fetus is present and developing but cannot be sure of the location of the fetus because the size of the fetus cannot touch the mother's abdomen.
May be useful. Always Healthy 😊
