The spectrum of disease and pathology related to obstetrics and gynecology range from non-life threatening to extremely dangerous. It is sometimes difficult to differentiate between those presentations. It is vital for pre-hospital providers to recognize which patients have the potential to become unstable.


The goal of this continuing education course is to educate providers about the prehospital evaluation and treatment of gynecological and obstetrical emergencies. Basic anatomy and physiology of the female reproductive system, the prehospital evaluation of ob-gyn emergencies, pelvic pain, and infections are discussed. After studying the information presented here, will be able to:
  • Describe basic female reproductive anatomy and physiology and how they relate to obstetrical and gynecologic emergencies
  • Demonstrate a primary and secondary assessment on a female patient with an obstetrical or gynecological complaint
  • Explain the pathophysiology of most obstetrical and gynecological emergencies
  • Assess common, but non-life threatening gynecological complaints
  • Distinguish between the many common sexually transmitted diseases

I was hoping for a course that would give more in-depth info than a basic EMT course - this was not it. Much of the presentation was simply the speaker reading the slides with little additional info or insights. Several mispronunciations, lots of "ums", throat clearing, snuffling with stuffy nose. Saying "you guys" a lot. Some slides were clearly repeating info already covered in other slides. One factual error: the speaker stated that pain with Mittelscherz may switch sides of the body from day-to-day, when in fact it switches sides of the body from month-to-month based on which ovary is releasing the egg. This course was on par with much of the mediocre EMS training I've experienced over the years. Glad I didn't pay for it.
