    We have our OSCES next month and I am trying to revise but not getting on so well! One of the possible scenarios is pathological CTG and althought we had a fantastic teaching session on CTG interpretation we didn't go over the actions required etc.

    Has anyone done pathological CTG as an OSCE that can shed some light for me?:?

    Thanks

    you would inform registrar for review of ctg, ?FSE ?cord prolapse- think about doing VE to cross this possibility out. or emergency buzzer- emergency section

    Consider fetal blood sampling (by the obstetrician obviously)- then if they are normal and the pathological ctg continues for another half hour then repeat them again - in the meantime expedite the delivery. (obviously if she is at say 5cm with pathological ctg I'd probably consider lscs rather than wait.) if they are abnormal - straight to section.

    jump call is ringing the consultant direct - it's basically saying 'I don't trust your registrar and he is endangering the woman and/or fetus'

    Thanks girlies, we have since had a revision session and I am a lot happier about what to do. We had Pathological CTG in our mock OSCE a couple of weeks ago and I managed to fluke an A+ so I am a bit more confident now!
