Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: At the University of Chicago Medical Center, an interdisciplinary team was formed when a patient presented with placenta increta and familial history of Malignant Hyperthermia (MH). The interdisciplinary team included the following: Operating room (OR) educators and management, labor and delivery (L&D), anesthesia, pediatric intensive care, interventional radiology, and OB/gyn surgeons. The interdisciplinary team created a timeline, review of tasks, and available personnel for potential emergency or scheduled c-section case. The interdisciplinary team also formed two potential scenarios: an emergency c-section or a scheduled c-section procedure. The patient presented with placenta increta (the placenta imbeds itself too deeply into the uterine wall to deliver safely). The potential risk is hemorrhage and possible hysterectomy. In the event of an emergency c-section, the intraoperative and L&D teams ensured and provided an on-call team, MH anesthesia set-up, and specific trays and supplies. The scheduled c-section was placed in a larger OR to assist in the flow of interdisciplinary teams (pediatric, interventional radiology, OB/gyn surgeons, intraoperative staff, L&D staff, and anesthesia) for the mother and unborn infant. On the scheduled c-section date, the patient delivered a healthy infant. The patient's placenta was removed without incident. The intraoperative arena uses interdisciplinary teams daily to provide safe patient outcomes. This poster provides an example to the perioperative nurse of interdisciplinary teamwork, and the care provided for the high risk obstetric patient.
