Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pelvic inflammatory disease, a common gynecologic problem with an estimated 1 million cases annually, results in serious sequelae. Endometritis, a common obstetric problem occurring in more than 15% of all pregnancies, is the leading cause of maternal mortality. Risk factors are numerous. Diagnosis is not always definitive and relies heavily on the clinical judgment of the practitioner. Prompt initiation of empiric treatment regimens, close monitoring of the client, and client education result in positive health outcomes.
