Obstetrical Emergencies

Delivery is a natural process. Normal and uncomplicated deliveries require an EMT to support the mother. Remember there are two patients.

Ovaries: produce eggs, estrogen and progesterone
Fallopian tubes: passageway between ovaries and uterus
Uterus: hollow pear-shaped muscular organ where the fetus develops Cervix: inferior narrow neck of the uterus
Vagina: birth canal
Perineum: between urethra and anus
Placenta: exchanges O2 and nourishment from the mother for CO2 and wastes from the fetus
Umbilical cord: attaches fetus and placenta has two arteries and one vein Amniotic sac contains 500-100 mL of amniotic fluid, should be clear Fetus: unborn child

Ovulation is at about day 14 in the cycle
