Q:

What are foreceps?

A:

Forceps are little metal spoons that can be used in order to help guide babies out through the vagina.

Occasionally, when some woman is fully dilated and has been pushing for a while, she needs a little bit of help in order to guide the baby down and out. 

Oftentimes forceps are used if the baby is in distress and needs to come out a little bit quicker.

Q:

What is a continuous glucose monitor?

A:

A continuous glucose monitor records your blood sugar level constantly. If you are having a very hard time controlling your diabetes, or if you have an insulin pump, a continuous monitor might be helpful for you. In this type of monitor, a sensor is actually inserted under your skin and it can test your blood sugar every 5 minutes around the clock. The sensor can be worn for 4-6 days, and you usually have it read by your healthcare team once the data is recorded.

Q:

How would my doctor diagnose benign prostatic hypertrophy?

A:

Your doctor will consider your symptoms and there is a tool called the International Prostate Symptoms Score Questionnaire. This questionnaire will help rate your symptoms and give your doctor a clear picture of whether you have signs of benign prostatic hypertrophy.
