As you begin your shift, the nurse comes in running and asks you to evaluate a patient. You find a visibly pregnant patient complaining of having regular uterine contractions for the last 10 hours and passed a significant amount of clear liquid per vagina on the way to the hospital. On the pelvic exam, you find a fully effaced and dilated cervix and palpate the fetal head at the level of the ischial spines. Only at this moment, you remember your hospital does not have a gynecologist in-house, and your nearest transfer center is 1 hour away. What would you do next?

Don’t panic, here is a perfect solution to manage this emergency. All the information is provided in the posters attached. Like the post and share your experience and tips in the comment section below and don’t forget to share it with your peers.
