Our February Academic Forum was on Obstetrics Emergencies. We had two speakers:
1. Omar Elhalwagy, a PCP student and our Academic Forums Officer. Omar talked about a complex case he attended while on shift, the process of diagnostic reasoning in this case and the change in priorities when learning more information.
2. Andy Whitehouse, a HEMS paramedic with London's Air Ambulance. His talk focused on why obstetrics emergencies can be difficult to manage in a prehospital environment and took us through the management of some emergencies you might encounter..
