LESSON 5
PHYSIOLOGIC CHANGES DURING PREGNANCY

Introduction

The changes that occur in the pregnant patient's body are caused by several factors. Many of these changes are the result of hormonal influence, some are caused by the growth of the fetus inside the uterus, and some are the result of the patient's physical adaptation to the changes that are occurring. This lesson is closely related to anatomy and physiology.
