Description

Fully revised and now in full-colour, the new edition of Pre-Obstetric Emergency Training (POET) will help practitioners identify and manage a range of time-critical obstetric emergencies, specifically in the pre-obstetric department setting.

Providing structured examination and assessment techniques as an aid to determine what treatment should be provided before transport, this practical manual equips the practitioner with the knowledge necessary to save the mother and fetus in life threatening circumstances before admission to the hospital. New to the second edition are chapters covering non-technical skills and communication, as well as complicated labour and delivery.

Designed to accompany the associated Advanced Life Support Group training course, Pre-Obstetric Emergency Training serves as an authoritative guide for a range of pre-hospital practitioners dealing with specialist situations.
