Polyhydramnios and oligohydramnios 저 양수액증과 과 양수액증
Amniotic fluid is contained in the amniotic sac.
It is normal for the fetus to be immersed in the amniotic fluid. Sometimes the amount of amniotic fluid is more than normal.
This phenomenon is called hyperamniotic fluid. When the amount is less than normal, it is called low amniotic fluid.
The amount of amniotic fluid is at least normal than normal, and pregnancy, delivery, birth can be born. However, sometimes, when the amount of amniotic fluid is less than normal, distress may occur in the fetus, fetal growth may be delayed, or fetal movement may decrease.
And congenital demons, digestive or urinary system can cause any abnormalities. Low amniotic fluid can be diagnosed with an ultrasound test.
There is no special treatment method, and rest and stability are the treatment methods. Hyperamniotic fluid, in which the amount of amniotic fluid is more than normal, is found in 2% of pregnant women. It is usually mild and more prone to late pregnancy. 50% of pregnant women with hyperamniotic fluid normally deliver a normal newborn.
Symptoms such as hemorrhoids, indigestion, leg swelling, and difficulty breathing may occur during pregnancy, and the fetus may have anemia, premature delivery, and fetal infection.
There is also the possibility of early umbilical prolapse following a rupture of the amniotic membrane. Sometimes, treatment is done to drain some amniotic fluid. Copyright ⓒ 2014 John Sangwon Lee, MD.,, FAAP
