  • Loepolds maneuver

    Fetal electronic monitoring

  • Loepolds maneuverFirst maneuver: Perform the first loepolds maneuver to identify the fetal lie, which maybe longitudinal or transverse and fetal presentation, which may be cephalic or vertex or maybe breech. To do this,lightly palpate the womans upper abdomen to identify the fetal part in the fundus. A

  • Loepolds maneuverFirst maneuver: If the part is relatively soft and irregular, youre palpating the buttocks, if the part feels round and firm, freely moveable, youre palpating the fetal head. If you feel head or buttocks in the fundus, the lie is longitudinal. Otherwise, the lie is transverse.Prenatal careA

  • Loepolds maneuverSecond maneuver: Next, perform the second maneuver to further identify the fetal presentation. Using the palm of one hand, locate the fetal back by the smooth back convex contour. With the opposite palm, feel for the irregularities that are the feet, hands, and other small parts.Prenatal careB

  • Loepolds maneuverThird maneuver: Carry out the third maneuver to determine the presenting part, which is the part of the fetals over the pelvic inlet. With the nurse dominant hand, gently grasp the lower pole of the uterus between the nurses thumb and fingers, and press in slightly.Prenatal careC

  • Loepolds maneuverFourth maneuver: Face the womans feet, to perform the fourth maneuver to assess the descent of the presenting part. With the palmar surface of your fingertips, outline the presenting part, which is usually the fetal head. If the presenting part has descended deeply, you may be able to outline only a small portion of it.Prenatal careD
