  7. Question about "Too narrow of bones" with giving birth

    :twocents:I will explain some things and hope it clears up and does not confuse you more. I worked in OB quite a while. It is amazing how confused people get but not surprising. There are so many variables and things to understand that I can see why ...
  8. Proper application of nasal cannula

    No the curves go down so the openings go down towards the respiratory tract. I have then seen the tubing go behind the ears and down under the chin. Not tightly or they will feel like choking. I have also seen the tubing put on top of the head. I alw...

  13. Good patient?

    I agree that it is really not an appropriate thing to say at all and a good term to disuss. If anyone that is a patient or one of their family members heard this it really sounds bad. I have been a nurse for 29 years and I have heard it and more beli...
  14. An OB's Birth Plan

    I worked 11 years in labor and delivery. I think if you like this dr. as a person and he listens to you i don't see anything wrong myself with how this reads. As you know ob has a high rate of lawsuits and very high malpractice insurance for a reason...
