Emergency Birth in the Community is the essential resource for ambulance clinicians, midwives, GPs and all healthcare professionals who come into contact with emergency birth. The book has been specifically adapted from the official JRCALC Guidelines, the established standard for pre-hospital care. For this unique publication, many topics have been expanded upon, including Maternal Resuscitation, Umbilical Cord Prolapse, Shoulder Dystocia and Post-partum Haemorrhage.
Pocket cards with key algorithms are included, covering a multitude of birth presentations and maternity related conditions. The book also features Summary cards for both mother and baby.
