The labor and delivery nurse expects which clients to be at high risk for amniotic fluid embolus (AFE)?

Select all that apply.
  1. a 27-year-old client with preeclampsia
  2. a healthy 23-year-old anticipating a vaginal delivery
  3. a 42-year-old expecting her second child via cesarean section
  4. a 32-year-old client with diabetes anticipating induced labor
Numbers 1, 3, and 4 are correct.
Rationale: Risk factors for AFE include diabetes, placenta previa or abruption, preeclampsia, eclampsia, advanced age, labor induction, forceps-assisted or cesarean birth, and uterine rupture or cervical laceration.
