Bleeding

Preterm and term vaginal bleeding evaluation Assess amount of hemorrhage by “pad” count and POC Hgb and transport commercial to Bethel OB Triage (if EGA > 20 weeks, otherwise to the ER) if vital signs stable and hemorrhaging allows. Consider IV fluids as needed.

Labor

Village OB Patient in Possible Labor

Abortion/Threatened Abortion

If a POC HGB and vital signs are stable this patient may go to the ER in Bethel on the next available flight. She should be warned that she may in be in Bethel for at least 2-3 days as part of the evaluation. There is also a risk she may bleed to death if she remains in the village.

Delivery

[Link to OB-Newborn/OB Special Circumstances/Labor in the Village]] If a (non-preterm) delivery is imminent in the village, encouraging the CHA to marshal resources in the clinic area for delivery is important including finding the most experienced (even former) CHA or traditional mid-wife. If the term laboring mother is unstable (or didn’t sign a BIB agreement) then activating a medevac to bring the patient to Bethel OB Triage is appropriate.
