Obstetrical Simulation Course: Emergencies and Catastrophes

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This two-day course will incorporate didactic presentations and hands-on simulations that focus on developing an understanding of the high risk, low frequency obstetrical emergencies. It encompasses team training using the TeamSTEPPS® model for shoulder dystocia, postpartum hemorrhage, eclamptic seizure, magnesium toxicity and maternal code. There are also five task training stations: operative vaginal delivery, Bakri balloon and uterine compression suture techniques, giving bad news to a patient and her family, and appropriate documentation of a shoulder dystocia delivery note. Participants will be grouped into 5 groups of 10 and rotate as a group through the team simulations on day 1 and the task training stations on day 2.
