Abstract: Delivery outside the hospital is an emergency situation with possible fatal complications. The health care providers in emergency medicine should be properly trained for the medical care of such patients. The recognition of signs of inevitable delivery is crucial before the decision to transport the labouring women to the hospital. In such circumstances we should be prepared for normal delivery, where physiological support is most important, to high risk delivery with the need for newborn or women’s resuscitation.
We present recommendations for delivery during the transport to the hospital.
Keywords: Delivery outside the hospital, newborn, postpartum haemorrhage, transport of the pregnant woman
Serbian Society of Emergency Physicians (SSEP) is formed with the idea to bring Emergency Medicine in Serbia to the highest level. We are organisation that equally takes care of progress of physicians in pre-hospital as well as in in-hospital level of health care and we are striving to adjust our activities to those goals.
There is, in front of you, a new online journal in the field of emergency medicine. I hope that it will
survive the common childhood diseases that go together with every new venture and that it will be
constantly present in our virtual world in the future.
