National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (DOT), Washington, DC.
This instructor's lesson plan guide on obstetric/gynecologic emergencies is one of fifteen modules designed for use in the training of emergency medical technicians (paramedics). Six units of study are presented: (1) anatomy and physiology of the female reproductive system; (2) patient assessment; (3) pathophysiology and management of gynecologic emergencies; pathophysiology and management of obstetric emergencies; (4) techniques of management; demonstrations on normal delivery, infant cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and complications and abnormal deliveries; and (5) clinical experience in the labor/delivery suite. Some of the topics discussed are gynecological disorders, care and transportation of mother and child, breech births, prolapsed cord, multiple births, care of premature infant, definition and stages of labor, and post partum hemorrhage. Each unit contains these elements: behavioral objectives, teaching procedures, a content outline, demonstration outline, and lists of needed equipment and materials. Skill evaluation sheets are provided. (It is suggested that each module can be presented individually or combined with other modules to construct a course for a selected group of students. CE 017 514 is a course guide for use in planning and implementation of the total training program.) (JH)
