048 – After hours critical cases discussion about assembling a good team and communication.

Hi Everyone,

This week we have a great four person discussion around the importance of assembling the right team when confronted with a high risk complex case in the after hours period. Interesting points covered include still doing the team huddle and introducing everyone even at midnight, a detailed discussion around manual aortic compression – the IVC, and how to monitor effectiveness – and also using a posterior hysterotomy to deliver the fetus when everywhere else looks bad!

Thanks to IKEA for their contribution to our high tech podcast studio!

Thanks also Parvesh, Matt Epee-Bekima & Matt Rucklidge for this great discussion.
