PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

At CAPE, we are driven by an unrelenting focus on improving human and system performance for the benefit of our patients. 

Pregnant women experience unique physiologic changes that have significant implications in the event of acute decompensation. OBLS is a dynamic, interactive, hands-on program to improve the healthcare team’s cognitive, technical and behavioral performance during a maternal arrest.  Practice in the timely delivery of the fetus and neonatal resuscitation provides trainees with the opportunity to manage decision-making and team dynamics when providing critical care to two patients simultaneously.  Simulated maternal resuscitation is based on national standards from the American Heart Association with knowledge and interventions specific to the obstetric patient.

 

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

 

* State the recommended changes to basic life support during pregnancy

* Perform maternal resuscitation using the Obstetric life support (OBLS) algorithm

* Review neonatal resuscitation using the Neonatal Resuscitation Program algorithm

* Discuss the potential reasons for maternal arrest in each scenario and actions that can be taken to reverse arrest
