Oh No She Isn't! Delivery Emergencies-Teri Campbell
We’ve read about it. We’ve attended lectures. We’ve watched it on TV. But have you actually performed an emergency delivery? Come to this fun and fast-paced lecture to learn valuable “laugh out loud” delivery pearls and actually perform complicated deliveries using a mom/neonate simulator and GoPro camera. Learn to avoid filling your own flight suit/scrubs/turnout gear with personal meconium by actually performing normal deliveries of vaginal, breech, shoulder dystocia, and more. Participants who perform deliveries will all win big and valuable prizes (that won’t involve child support)! Pediatrics/Geriatrics/Special Populations Track Sponsored by the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma.
1. Participants will recognize the clinical and behavioral signs of imminent delivery;
2. Perform and/or observe the delivery techniques for vertex, breech, and shoulder dystocia deliveries;
3. Review the management of umbilical cord prolapse;
4. Discuss transport considerations for the emergently delivering high-risk OB patient
