I hope I never ever have to do this, but these people at the Essentials of EM conference make it look easy. I think this is worth watching.
Some points I took away from the video:
- This is a resuscitative delivery. It is meant to save the mother. The fetus and uterus are diverting a lot of blood away from mom.
- Chest compressions are going on the entire time.
- The immediate next stop if you get ROSC is the OR, so call OB right away.
- Don’t forget to deliver the placenta and massage the uterus. Get that thing out and the uterus smaller. Both divert blood away from mom.
