Simulation training held to reduce risk of C-sections

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The South Carolina Birth Outcomes Initiative (SCBOI) provided simulation education training to the OBGYN physicians and perinatal nurses of Tidelands Waccamaw Community Hospital on Thursday, May 14, as part of our effort to reduce C-sections in first-time, low-risk moms. 

The SimCOACH is the first mobile simulation laboratory in South Carolina and one of only eight in the nation.

The 90-minute team training session simulated best practices to reduce the risk of non-medically necessary C-sections. 

The training will help labor and delivery teams:

• Identify the difference between latent and active labor and describe the changes in the revised labor curve which allows for a longer latent phase.

• Use the revised categorization of fetal heart rate tracings. 

• Respond to shoulder dystocia and postpartum hemorrhage.

• Identify the role for operative vaginal delivery including rotation.
