Midwives, GPs and Specialist Obstetricians and trainees are becoming aware of how Intra-partum Ultrasound is important to supplement their clinical skills in the management of labour and delivery.
The diagnosis of poor progress in labour and decisions regarding the timing and type of assistance required relies on evaluation of cervical dilatation, descent and position of the presenting part.
Ultrasound in active labour is not yet routinely used even though studies have shown that it is more precise and reproducible than clinical examination particularly in assessment of the position of the fetal head.
This program will demonstrate how ultrasound may be a useful adjunct to clinical assessment in the management of a woman and her baby in the labour ward.
