Trauma in Pregancy
When caring for the pregnant trauma patient, one must always remember that there is not one, but two potentially critically injured patients. The number one cause of fetal death in trauma remains the death of the mother. Keeping this fact in mind, many of the assessment and management techniques utilized with the non-pregnant trauma patient are applicable, however, there are distinct and crucial differences that medical personnel should be aware of to allow for the best possible care of the mother and her yet unborn child. This course has been designed to teach the “what you really need to know (& will actually remember)” information regarding OB emergencies (especially for non L&D professionals!)
