Obstetrical Emergencies

Obstetrical Emergencies

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. Therefore, the nurse must know the provisions of advanced cardiopulmonary life support.

In situations where deterioration of maternal status results in respiratory or cardiac arrest, healthcare providers need to provide basic and advanced life support.

That should include the necessary pregnancy alterations which includes the physiologic changes induced by the pregnancy and the unique circumstances of both the mother and the fetus. This course reviews the most common causes of maternal arrest and modifications that need to be implemented for proper cardiopulmonary resuscitation of the pregnant woman, including the perimortem cesarean birth. This class discusses the causes of Obstetrical Emergencies. Additionally, the course covers management of cardiopulmonary arrest in pregnancy and the implementation of perimortem (at or near death) cesarean delivery.

This is an excellent class for all Labor and Delivery nurses.

It is also important for any healthcare provider that is in direct care of the gravid woman.  The Emergency Nurse is often unaware of the concerns of the pregnant patient and therefore, the awareness of these significant differences between the pregnant woman and the non-pregnant woman may decrease the mortality and morbidity of the Emergency Room patient.
