Fernandez Hospital conducted a very successful workshop on “Instrumental Delivery” on 15th July, 2018 for the in-house doctors with the aim to provide a safe and high-quality care for the mothers-to-be.We practice evidence-based medicine and aim for our doctors to be up-to-date with their skills.
We ensure that our doctors are regularly certified in their essential skills and this workshop is one of many such activities that we conduct. We have been conducting this workshop since the last five years. The format has been changed to give more hands-on experience in performing forceps, ventouse and kiwi delivery.
The course was run by Dr. Padmaja, Dr. Vinatha and Dr. Sailaja. The new approach, with the use of hands-on mannequins as well as Kiellands Rotational Forceps, was appreciated by all the 36 participants, and it is evident from some of the feedback below.
1. It was great learning about the application of forceps for after-coming head of breech and forceps in mannequin for face presentation (Mento Anterior).
2. Really appreciated the Kielland's Forceps station.
3. Very well organised workshop. Excellent teachers who made sure everyone got a chance to try AVD right position and determination. It was worth attending this.
