Haemorrhagic obstetric emergencies represent the most significant cause of maternal mortality and morbidity. In the last few years, obstetric haemorrhage has become the topic of several national and international conferences, professional courses, guideline updates and national surveillance programmes.
Many aspects, however, remain a challenge within modern obstetrics, due to the severe implications
on the maternal-neonatal outcome.
These include: vaginal intrapartum surgery, past proce- dures now unfamiliar to young gynaecologists, performing difficult caesarean sections, surgical techniques in the repair of uterine tears during caesarean section, the role of interventional radiology, correct aneaesthesiology and resuscitation techniques, correct management of coagulation disorders.
The aim of this course is to offer medical professionals an update on the last surgical techniques and a practical guide to labour ward care management, using mannequins and instructive videos.
Sessions in anestesiology/resuscitation, the role of the hematologist and the interventional radiologist will provide the necessary tools for appropriate multi-disciplinary management.
At the end of the course, a round table of experts will discuss the subject of surgical training (clinical competences) for gynaecologists and best practices in the use of funding for maternity units (organizational levels) and what we can learn from past clinical mistakes and medical-legal decisions.
