visual aid: breech delivery

29 Jun

the most commonly referenced delivery maneuver seems to be the Mauriceau‐Smellie‐Veit maneuver:

the basics to get to that point seem to be:

–wait till you see the popliteal fossa, then sweep/deliver the leg

–wait till you see the scapula border, then rotate gently and sweep/deliver the arms

–wait till you see the nape of the neck, then deliver with the MSV maneuver


quick snapshot visual aid:

quick video visual aid (relatively short, with decent audio):


There you go. Add it to the emergency toolbox.
