Overall, the Obstetrical Emergencies class reviews the most common causes of maternal cardiac arrest and their interventions. First, students will learn the proper assessments needed to prevent life-threatening events for pregnant women as well as neonates. Furthermore, our instructor overviews the modifications for unexpected maternal cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and perimortem cesarean births.

This course covers the newest American Heart Association guidelines for the management of cardiopulmonary arrest in pregnancy. Upon completion of this class, students will gain a thorough understanding of how to carry-out a Maternal Code Blue, as well as how to implement a perimortem Cesarean delivery.

All obstetrical nurses MUST be adept in providing basic and advanced life support. Especially in situations where deterioration of maternal status results in respiratory or cardiac arrest.  The fact is that maternal obstetrical emergencies leading to mortality in the United States have greatly increased since 1990’s. Because of the increasing number of pregnancies with preexisting conditions, the healthcare team has a duty to respond when a pregnant woman’s condition worsens.

All in all, nurses must know how to carry-out the provisions of advanced cardiopulmonary life support for pregnant women. Additionally, nurses should understand the physiologic changes induced by pregnancy and the unique circumstances of both the mother and the fetus. In particular, ED and NICU nurses, plus those who work for high-risk labor units will greatly benefit from this class. To conclude, for new grads and students, the obstetrical emergencies course will enhance your resume for maternal child care positions.
