Correct

- Kleinhauer-Betke test

- CBC

- Liver function tests

- Non-stress test

- C-reactive protein

Rationale

After maternal trauma in an Rh negative mother, a Kleinhauer-Betke test for the presence of fetal cells in maternal serum should be checked and Rhogam given if positive. A non-stress test can evaluate the health of the fetus. CBC, C-reactive protein and D-dimer tests are less important tests to order in this situation.
