Chapter 8: Genetics, Conception, and Fetal Development
- A father and mother are carriers of phenylketonuria (PKU). Their 2-year-old daughter has PKU. The couple told the nurse that they were planning to have a second baby. Since their daughter has PKU, they believe that their next baby is sure not to be affected. Which of the following responses by the nurse is most accurate?
|1.||“Good planning; you need to take advantage of the odds in your favor.”|
|2.||“I think you’d better check with your doctor first.”|
|3.||“You are both carriers, so each baby has a 25% chance of being affected.”|
|4.||“The ultrasound indicates a boy, and boys are not affected with PKU.”|
- Incorrect: There is still an increased likelihood of this couple having another child with PKU. Already having already one child with PKU does not guarantee that they will not have another.
- Incorrect: They do need to discuss their options with their doctor. However, an opportune time has presented itself for the couple to receive correct teaching regarding inherent genetic risks.
- Correct: There is a 1 in 4 chance that each child produced by this couple will be affected with PKU disorder.
- Incorrect: There is no correlation with gender as PKU disorder is an autosomal recessive pattern disorder.

|1.||Disturbed body image|
|2.||Risk for interrupted family processes|
|4.||Risk for injury|
- Incorrect: It is common for women to experience body image disturbances in the postpartum period, but this is unrelated to giving birth to a child with Down syndrome.
- Correct: This mother will likely experience a disruption in the family process related to the birth of a baby with an inherited disorder.

|2.||“It depends on what caused the defect.”|
|3.||“They occur between the third and fifth weeks of development.”|
|4.||“They usually occur in the first 2 weeks of development.”|
- Incorrect: This is an inaccurate statement. The cardiovascular system is the first organ system to function in the developing human. Blood vessel and blood formation begin in the third week—the heart is developmentally complete in the fifth week.
- Incorrect: Regardless of the cause, the heart is vulnerable during its period of development – in the third to fifth weeks.
- Correct: The cardiovascular system is the first organ system to function in the developing human. Blood vessel and blood formation begin in the third week; the heart is developmentally complete in the fifth week.
- Incorrect: The cardiovascular system is the first organ system to function in the developing human. Blood vessel and blood formation begin in the third week; the heart is developmentally complete in the fifth week.

|2.||“Babies in utero do respond to their mother’s voice.”|
|3.||“You’ll need to ask the doctor if the baby can hear yet.”|
|4.||“Thinking that your baby hears will help you bond with the baby.”|
- Incorrect: Although this statement is accurate, it is not the most appropriate.
- Correct: Fetuses respond to sound by 24 weeks. The fetus can be soothed by the sound of the mother’s voice.
- Incorrect: This statement is not appropriate. The mother should be instructed that her fetus can hear at 24 weeks and can respond to the sound of her voice.
- Incorrect: The statement is not appropriate. It gives the impression that her baby cannot, in fact, hear her. Additionally, it belittles the mother’s interpretation of her fetus’s behaviors.

|4.||“The umbilical cord is a group of blood vessels that are very well protected by the placenta.”|
- Correct: This statement is the most appropriate response.
- Incorrect: This statement is inaccurate.
- Incorrect: This statement is not appropriate. It negates the patient’s need for teaching and discounts her feelings.
- Incorrect: The placenta does not protect the umbilical cord; it is surrounded by Wharton’s jelly.

|2.||“The baby absorbs oxygen from your blood system.”|
|3.||“The placenta provides oxygen to the baby and excretes carbon dioxide into your bloodstream.”|
|4.||“The placenta delivers oxygen-rich blood through the umbilical artery to the baby’s abdomen.”|
- Incorrect: The fetal lungs do not function for respiratory gas exchange in utero.
- Incorrect: The baby does not simply absorb oxygen from a woman’s blood system. Blood and gas transport occur through the placenta.
- Correct: The placenta functions by supplying oxygen and excreting carbon dioxide to the maternal blood stream.
- Incorrect: The placenta delivers oxygen-rich blood through the umbilical vein, not artery.
