A Workshop on “Obstetric Emergencies and Life Support Skills” was conducted on 3rd June 2018 by the expert faculty of Fernandez Hospital. It was aimed at updating the neonatal and maternal resuscitation skills of practitioners and post graduates. The delegates also brushed up their skills in dealing with life-threatening emergencies, like: shoulder dystocia, post partum hemorrhage and eclampsia.
It was a well-attended workshop where all 52 delegates got hands-on practice at each of the five stations. The delegates appreciated the workshop as it made them confident to deal with emergencies. The Workshop also included 12 nurses from different hospitals working in Labour Wards who got basic training in emergencies.
Some of the feedbacks :
1. The workshop has made me confident in dealing with Post-partum hemorrhage and Eclampsia situations which I face almost every week as I work in a tertiary referral centre.
2. Having problems during delivery due to shoulder dystocia is a nightmare, I got hands-on training to deal with shoulder dystocia which helps in my practice.
3. I am now confident in doing neonatal resuscitation as I have a nursing home and the neonatologist may not always be available.
