Abstract

Cardiac arrest on the labor unit is a rare event, but it can have significant effects on a woman and her fetus, as well as on the clinicians providing health care. Our labor team was challenged to provide care for a woman with a rare cardiac condition that can cause a wide range of events, from fainting to cardiac arrest. This article describes our use of simulation-based learning to prepare for potential scenarios.
