TektonidouAbstractAntiphospholipid Syndrome (APS) is the commonest treatable cause of recurrent miscarriage and pharmacological treatment of pregnant patients with antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL) should aim at preventing obstetric complications and maternal thrombotic events. Conventional treatment for patients with an established diagnosis of obstetric APS (OAPS), generally resulting in over 70–80% successful pregnancies. Since serop...

Conclusions: 1. Clinical suspicion of APS requires careful diagnostic testing. Because of inadequate diagnostic workup, many patients may not even have an APS, and these patients could be adequately treated with a DOAC. 2. Patients with single or double positive antiphospholipid antibodies but without positive LA may have a comparably low thrombotic risk and may also be treated with a DOAC in venous TE - sufficient evidence for that conclusion is not yet available but is suggested by the results of meta-analyses. 3. Triple positive patients or those with APS who suffered from arterial thromboembolism have a very high ...

Conclusion: Uncertainty is a prominent theme in women experiencing a high-risk pregnancy. Uncertainty is influenced by various personal, pregnancy-related, demographic, and healthcare-related factors. Findings may offer insight and empathy for healthcare professionals. Nurses who understand significance of uncertainty in adjusting to two conflicting life events have the opportunity to help women in their understanding of a high-risk diagnosis during pregnancy through anticipatory guidance. Future research is needed to explore factors affecting uncertainty and to understand the experience of high-risk pregnancy to develop...

Theories from various perspectives can increase nurses' understanding of maternal behaviors throughout the developmental process of pregnancy and postpartum. The purpose of this article is to present relevant theories that maternity nurses will likely find useful, and to demonstrate their applicability through an unfolding exemplar case. Nurses can provide improved and more sensitive care when guided by psychosocial theories such as Rubin's tasks of pregnancy, prenatal attachment, pregnancy as a liminal phase, and the grief work in postpartum as proposed by Mercer. Use of relevant theories can promote holistic nursing care...
