Emergency Deliveries in the Field

June 15, 2020

First responders often receive little training or experience with emergency childbirth in the field. A new partnership between UT Health San Antonio and local EMS agencies is bringing medical students with an interest in OB/GYN to fire and EMS services to teach paramedics and EMTs about the intricacies of field deliveries. EMS World’s Jonathan Bassett speaks with Nicholas Stansbury, recent graduate of UT Health San Antonio Medical School and one of the co-authors of “Emergency Deliveries in the Field,” about the background of the program and how it’s helping keep EMS responders trained and ready for unplanned births and the health emergencies that can arise. A readaloud of the full article, which appears in the June 2020 issue of EMS World, follows.
