a) note the time from the ending of one contrxn to the ending of the next
b) note the time from the ending of one contrxn to the beginning of the next
c) note the time from the beginning of one contrxn to the ending of the next
d) note the time from the beginning of one contrxn to the beginning of the next
d) note the time from the beginning of one contrxn to the beginning of the next
To determine the duration of a contrxn:

a) the time when the tensing of the fundus is 1st felt & again as relaxation occurs
b) the time when the tensing of the fundus is 1st felt to the beginning of the next contrxn
c) from the time relaxation begins to the time of onset of the following contrxn

d) palpating the indentability of the fundus
d) palpating the indentability of the fundus
To adequately determine the contrxn pattern, it is necessary to:

a) assess at least 1 ctrxn by frequency, duration, intensity
b) assess at least 3 contrxn's by frequency, duration, intensity
c) assess contrxn's by duration, frquency & intensity for at least 1/2 hour.
