PURCHASE                               RETURNING USERS

Shoulder Dystocia has been defined as the impaction of the fetal anterior or posterior shoulder behind the material pubic symphysis resulting in delay in a cephalic vaginal delivery. This creates a high-risk intrapartum complication affecting both mother and baby.

The Shoulder Dystocia online resource provides an integrated approach to education, including animation demonstrating the significance of selected maneuvers in achieving delivery of the baby as well as periodic interactive knowledge checks to support learning. This type of learning is key to helping prepare clinicians for this level of critical care event.

After completing this online Maternity Crisis Management the participant will:
  • Describe shoulder dystocia with a solid understanding of how to recognize it.
  • Describe the potential maternal, fetal and neonatal complications of after a shoulder dystocia event.
  • Explain the routine maneuvers employed to free the fetal shoulders and why they are used.
  • Describe postpartum care requirements for mother and baby after a shoulder dystocia event.

Intended Audience

The program is designed for physicians, intrapartum registered nurses, nurse clinical leaders and educators.
