I was given this nick name the other night , I guess it is a compliment
. I was given that name because as the midwive put it , " I am willing to ride a lot of crap out and will do almost anything to get a patient to avoid a C/S and deliver a healthy baby." this conversation came about when we were talking of one of my patients who came in ruptured been ruptured at home for 12 hours was 2cm 50% on admit. baby had prolonged decels a couple times. midwife was in house had her come up, I had put FSE on she came in we started amnio infusion.also started ampicillin IV . by now patient ctx 1 to 1.5 minutes lasting 90 sec or better. baby had couple more big decels did all the usual things position change O2, at one point gave brethine to decrease ctx and had bed in trendelenburg. let baby rest then proceeded with labor. I never left the patients bedside the whole time,few hours later we delivered a healthy 7 lb baby 9/9/10 apgars. by this time they had ped and ob doc in house waiting for C/s to everones suprise. it never happened.
I think i like my new nick
