Emergency Birth in the Community- 1st Edition
Emergency Birth in the Community is the essential resource for all healthcare professionals who come into contact with emergency deliveries in the community setting, including midwives and GPs. The book has been specifically adapted from the official JRCALC Guidelines, which covers the established standard for prehospital care. For this unique publication, many topics have been expanded upon, including Maternal Resuscitation, Umbilical Cord Prolapse, Shoulder Dystocia and Post-partum Haemorrhage.
The book includes essential algorithms for a multitude of birth presentations and maternity related conditions, as well as exclusive Birth Summary Cards for both mother and baby.
"Within this book is an exceptional level of detail of how the physiology of a woman’s body changes during pregnancy. By having a clear understanding of these differences and applying this knowledge when managing women at all stages of pregnancy, attending responders are highly likely to help save lives in the community. This isn’t only a book, it is a practical, efficient tool to help you deliver safe maternity care." Mr Edward Morris MD FRCOG, Vice President, Clinical Quality, Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists
