Good Morning to All,

I am looking for some more advice in regards to Critical Care Transports in the OB patient. We operate a CCT Team RN/CC-EMTP/EMT. We are ground based and have transport times of 30-40 minutes with most OB related patients. Does anyone utilize Uterine Monitoring? Does anyone have Protocols written that i could review? What is the current benchmark for when not to transport vs transport. Any information regarding OB & High risk OB Transports would be greatly appreciated. Have a great day and be safe.

We use the Philips FM-2 tocometer. It works well in our FW & RW bases.

It is a wonderful device. My argument for many years was comparing OB patients to cardiac. You would not take a cardiac pt off the cardiac monitor and every 15 minutes listen to their apical pulse. Why do we find it acceptable with a fetus. Tocometers not only tells you the FHR, but contractions accels, decels variability, ect... Many things that we should be continuously looking at. If it wasn't important then why do the monitor it at the bedside? Pam Adams is also a great resource to call on. We have ha d a few pt that have really benefited from this device by treating the fetus correctly and knowing something bad was going on.
