Talk:2010 Group Project 5
Dez--Seow Liew 09:10, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
Hi,members,i have split the work up to 3 different constituent parts and each of us will get to pick 1
and do it.In addition,i have also roughly split the work up to 3 stages, which is:
a)collecting the information from different sources,
b)grouping the information,and
c)put what we get on group page.
-you just need to put your name next to the capitalised heading,(e.g PART C-Dez)to indicate you are up to that part.
-PART C is picked by me, so,options left are PART A and B only.
-You can always add in additional info, but i think it`s better we discuss it first when we figure or find it out(the ones you cant decide if they`re your part),so that we can discussion whose part it belongs to and who should do it, to kinda maintain the flow of the content.
-i`m aware that PART B is relatively short,i was outta ideas.Well, the point of PART B i make it mainly emphasizes on info related to how this test is carried out and 3rd party`s voices on this test.
The 3 different parts that i have split up are as following:
PART A - Jade
-what does this technique rely on?(fibronectin)
-Stuff about fn ,fibronectin,like the time or stage it forms during pregnancy.
-what does fn do in mom`s tummy during pregnancy.
-what kind of other abnormalities can this test predict? (mainly used for the prediction of preterm birth as far as i know)
-signs and events of preterm birth in mom`s tummy if there`s a high possibility the mom`s having a
preterm birth,like,cervix dilation , fn leaks outta vagina,etc.
-the relationship of fn and prediction of preterm birth.
(like comparison of fn between pregnant woman who are not at risk of preterm birth and those who are,etc)
-how does the test work? like,steps and procedures involve.
3rd party`s voices:
-what do the public doctors , pregnant woman say about this technique?-interview thing, vids( how this
test is carried out)
-who should take the test?
-What will the results tell about risk of delivering early?
-advantages of knowing the prediction.
-treatments for those who tested with positive result.
One last thing,
i think our primary source would be pubmed,of course there`re others too, but then the info isnt as
extensive and specific as pubmed,so go to it,look for the related journals and extract only details that
It`d be great if we could find more images and videos related to the info we get,by doing so,we could
make the page less lengthy and readers understand it better.
Looking forward to your comments,because i could be wrong.
--z3291079 12:21, 16 August 2010 (UTC) We should probably add something about the history of fetal f. Fit it in with part B?
heey , sorry for the late reply.Yea, it fits in with part B , sounds reasonable. Do you have any idea what it could be? and post some links on here , if you have some with you. --Seow Liew 06:57, 19 August 2010 (UTC)
Hey guys I found a really good article about that defines what fetal fibronectin is and how it is used to determine preterm labour. I Don't know if I can copy paste because of the copyright and I forgot how to make a link so the website is http://www.ranzcog.edu.au/publications/statements/C-obs26.pdf , It's got bits and pieces of everyones parts if You guys want to look through it and pick out what would be of help to you. Also I found a video. It's that doctor that goes onto the Dr Phil show but it's pretty good. It was one of few that I could find soo look at it and tell me what you think. Its website is http://www.5min.com/Video/Learn-about-Fetal-Fibronectin-Test-114223707. If you can find any videos just post them up because I don't think there are many around. Also I've found articles that question the tests ability to undermine the occurrence of the pre-term birth. I don't know if this is significant enough to add in as we are essentially talking about it's role in identifying whether or not the mother is going to have a pre-term birth or not instead of whether the doctor can stop it. Tell me what you think. should I add it in or not? You can find the article at http://journals.lww.com/greenjournal/Abstract/1996/05000/The_Preterm_Prediction_Study__Fetal_Fibronectin.1.aspx. --Mary Nicolas 10:09, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
Mary, you have one more part to do , which is the history of fetal fibronectin.( Like what inspired the Doc came up with this technique and is this technique a modified version of some technique, and of course it`d be great if you could find stuff like when the first time this technique was put to use, how was it and talk a little bit about the following tests,and important people involved.) --Seow Liew 06:57, 19 August 2010 (UTC)
