HYDERABAD: It was not only practising obstetricians and gynecologists who become anxious to perform deliveries after seven maternal mortalities at government hospitals in Telangana in the past 42-days, but also post graduate students pursuing specialisations in obstetrics and gynecology (OBG), anesthesia, general medicine, were a worried lot as they would be performing deliveries in the future.
To allay their fears, Telangana Directorate of Medical Education would conduct workshops where practising doctors and PG students would be explained how to manage complications that arise during deliveries, apart from other topics. One such workshop was organised a week-ago at Gandhi Medical College.
What leads to maternal deaths, form of treatment that should be offered when a patient suffers from heavy bleeding during delivery, how a patient suffering from multiple health complications should be attended, maintaining sterility in Operation Theaters (OT) and other crisis situations, were explained at the workshop.
In the workshop conducted a week ago, the students were presented with hypothetical situations where they were asked about opinions on how to deal with a patient suffering health crisis.
“If the uterus is well retracted and vaginal bleeding is minimal but the patient is having pallor, and hypertension, what do you suspect?,” was one such hypothetical situation. It was stressed on students to avoid cesarean surgeries.
Workshops on these lines will be conducted at Gandhi Medical College frequently. Experienced anesthetists, gynecologists, general physicians would address students.
