A Urinary Tract Infection (also called a UTI for short) is an infection of the body's system involved in excreting urine. This can take place in the kidneys, the ureter the bladder or the urethra. Most often this occurs in the urethra and bladder. Studies are inconclusive on this point. Some doctors theorize that as the uterus grows its increased weight can block the drainage of urine from the bladder, causing an infection. Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are one of the most common bacterial infections during pregnancy. UTIs are associated with risks to both the fetus and the mother, including pyelonephritis, preterm birth, low birth weight, and increased perinatal mortality. The prevalence rates of bacteriuria in pregnant women and nonpregnant women are essentially the same. UTIs are more common in women when compared with men, primarily because of the anatomic differences of the shorter urethra and its proximity to the vagina and the rectum. However, when pregnant women have a urinary tract infection, they have a higher risk for and increased occurrence of upper tract UTIs when compared with lower tract UTIs. Several physiologic changes occur during pregnancy that cause otherwise healthy women to be more susceptible to serious sequelae from urinary tract infections. The infections can be symptomatic or asymptomatic. Asymptomatic bacteriuria, as the name implies, is a positive urine culture without specific symptoms. Asymptomatic bacteriuria increases the risk for an upper tract UTI, also known as pyelonephritis. Treatment of asymptomatic bacteriuria reduces the risk of a symptomatic infection. The frequency of asymptomatic bacteriuria occurs in 2-7% of pregnancies, similar to the nonpregnant population. However, up to 40% of these may progress to symptomatic upper tract UTI or pyelonephritis, significantly more than in nonpregnant women.4 Several factors are associated with an increased frequency in various patient populations. Indigent patients have a 5-fold increased incidence of bacteriuria compared with that of nonindigent patients. The risk is doubled in women with sickle cell trait. Other risk factors for bacteriuria include diabetes mellitus, neurogenic bladder retention, and a history of previous urinary tract infections.

She is currently not taking any medications but she was having monthly and weekly prenatal check-ups in their Barangay health center and also for immunization.


Three days prior to patients admission, Mrs. UTI noted having hypogastric tenderness with pain and discomfort with no associated signs and symptoms until one day of prior to admission patient felt hypogastric pain and tenderness which is now associated with inability of walking which was her chief complaint. She was on her second pregnancy after a number of tests and examination by her admitting physician Dr. Dr. Salayog, Benjamin Jorge she as admittedly diagnosed with UTI, she was referred to her now attending physician/OB-gyne to supervise her now condition. She was transferred to the labor room for monitoring of fetal heart rate as well as to alleviate uterine contraction through tocolysis.

Physical examination follows a methodical head to toe format in the Cephalocaudal assessment. This is done systematically using the techniques of inspection, palpation, percussion and auscultation with the use of materials and investments such as the penlight, thermometer, sphygmomanometer, tape measure and stethoscope and also the senses. During the procedure, the group made every effort to recognize and respect the patients feelings as well as to provide comfort measures following appropriate safety precautions and patients privacy.

Kidneys The role of the kidneys is to cleanse the blood and balance its fluids:

They manufacture urine to filter out substances that the body does not need. They also take nutrients and other substances from the urine and return them to the blood.

Urine is manufactured in the kidney's renal tubules. There are approximately one million of these in each kidney. The raw material the body uses to manufacture urine is filtered blood serum, which is the plasma portion of the blood (minus proteins and blood cells).

The renal tubules process the filtered blood serum and remove the substances that will become urine These tubules lead into collecting ducts. These ducts empty the urine into small chambers referred to as renalcalyces he calyces funnel the urine into the renal pelvis, a basin-shaped cavity at the base of each kidney.

Ureters The ureters are tubular organs that lead from the renal pelvis of the kidney to the bladder. The ureters transport small quantities of urine when their muscular walls contract rhythmically. This pushes the urine in a wave-like fashion through the ureters from the kidneys to bladder. Bladder The bladder is a storage organ for urine. The bladder wall has the capacity to stretch like a balloon, enabling the bladder to expand as the volume of urine increases. When enough urine is in the bladder, receptors that respond to the stretch in the bladder wall will send electrical signals to the brain. This creates the need to urinate.

Urethra The urethra is a tubular organ that transports urine from the bladder to the outside of the body.

In men, the urethra runs through the penis. In women, the urethra has its own opening within the vagina

Inside the body, the urethra is surrounded by a muscle that a person can control. This muscle must relax in order for urination to occur.
Predisposing factors: Poor hygiene Poor intake of water Inadequate nutritions Sexual Intercourse Physiologic changes in pregnancy Urinary retention caused by the weight of the enlarging uterus. The uterus sits directly on top of the bladder. As the uterus grows, its increased weight can block the drainage of urine from the bladder Physiologic changes during pregnancy predispose such women to bacteriuria


Invasion of bacteria such as Escherichia coli (most common, in as many as 70% of cases) which was originated from fecal floras that colonize the periurethral area (ascending infection)

Leading to different signs and symptoms of infection: IF TREATED: Medical management Nursing management Feeling an urgent need to urinate or frequent urination. Having difficulty urinating. Having a burning sensation or cramps in the lower back or lower abdomen. Having a burning sensation during urination. Urine that looks cloudy or has an odor. Chills, fever, sweats IF NOT TREATED: It may lead to different complications such as: Kidney infections which may interfere with pregnancy, causing early labor and/or low birth weight (pyelonephritis) Causing a permanent scar or damaged to kidney which can be DEATH Sepsis detrimental for both mother and child

Good prognosis Recovery

Suggested for some routine diagnostics examinations such as urine analysis and culture and sensitivity tests which is safer tests for pregnancy to determine if pus, red blood cells or bacteria are present and to analyze the causative agent present and antibiotics which can be suggested to certain strains of MCO. Requested for some other examinations such as Complete blood count, platelet count, sodium-potassium, and pelvic ultrasound. Taking 3-7 day full course of antibiotics that is safe for the mother as well as to the baby. Ampicillin 1gm IV q6 (-) ANST

Laboratory #4: Pelvic Ultrasound


Single line intrauterine pregnancy, 35 weeks by fetal biometry. Cephalic presentation, with good cardiac and somantic activities. Somantic activities Anterior placenta grade II Normohydramnios Sonographic estimated fetal Weight is appropriate for gestational age.

Medications Instructed to follow prescribed medications and advised to avoid taking over the counter medicines without doctors prescription thus it will affect her child inside the womb. Exercise/Activities Participation in exercise, including kegel exercise and deep breathing exercise , can enhance circulation and aid in the elimination of blood congestion in the pelvic area.

Treatments The first step in treating urinary tract infections is prevention. Prevention measures include drinking plenty of fluids, urinating as soon as possible when the urge is felt, and drinking cranberry juice, which may have infection-fighting qualities. For women, prevention measures include urinating promptly after having sexual intercourse, wiping the genital area from front to back after urinating or defecating, and not using douches or deodorant feminine products. These can be irritating to the genitals. Other treatments: o Treating Urinary Tract Infection by drinking water or fluids It is very important for your system to have a good flow of urine. This can be done by consuming plenty of water. It cleanses your body by diluting and flushing out the unwanted substance. o Treating Urinary Tract Infection by Cranberry Juice Cranberry juice disallows bacteria to cling to the cell, which line the urinary tract. It is a great remedy to fight this infection. If you cannot have the cranberry juice directly you can mix it with apple juice to add some taste. Health teachings For women with recurrent UTIs, give the following instructions: a. Reduce vaginal introital concentration of pathogens by hygienic measures. b. Wash genitalia in shower or while standing in bath-tub bacteria in bath water may gain entrance into urethra. c. Cleanse around the perineum and urethral meatus after each bowel movement, with front-to-back cleansing to minimize fecal contamination of periurethral area. Drink liberal amounts of water to lower bacterial concentrations in the urine. Avoid bladder irritants coffee, tea, alcohol, cold drinks, and aspartame.

Out-patient/ Follow up Advise women with simple, uncomplicated cystitis that they do not require follow-up as long as symptoms are completely resolved with antibiotic therapy. But still follows the doctors order in case of there is a follow up check up to ensure that are no presence of infection especially if the case is pregnancy. Diet

Since bacteria that cause infections in your urinary tract cannot live in very acidic conditions, one of the suggestions you should heed if you are prone to urinary tract infections is to increase your intake of vitamin-C-rich foods and to drink citrus juices that have a lot of vitamin C. Not only will this increase the acidity of your urine, it will also make you more resistant to infection.

Some foods may have to be avoided when you have UTI, and these include processed foods, cheeses, and other dairy products. You may also need to avoid chocolates, coffee, and tea that have high caffeine content.

Other things you may need to avoid when you have urinary tract infections include spicy food, fizzy drinks or soda pop, beer, and other alcoholic beverages.

Try to increase your intake of healthy substances like vegetables and fruits. You can also have these in fresh juice form by juicing them or pureeing them. You can also mix fruit and vegetables in one healthy juice that you can drink every day for your health.
