High Nurse Intervention Birth
Nurse support for women in labor decreases medical intervention and increases good outcomes for both mother and baby (AWHONN, 2011). With increasing acuity, charting expectations and use of medical interventions nurses are finding themselves spending less time at their patient’s bedside. The common utilization of induction and cesarean section as means of delivery has contributed to the decline is nurses’ skill for caring for the low risk women in spontaneous labor. This presentation seeks to reintroduce the skills, knowledge and art of nursing that women in labor require for a low risk, low medical intervention birth.

Category Two Electronic Fetal Monitor Strip Management
Since the 2008, perinatal professionals have been categorizing electronic fetal heart monitoring (EFM) strips according to the nomenclature, provided by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). Category II strip management can be difficult due to interpretation, communication and variance in predicted and actual fetal outcomes. This presentation reviews three actual cases of Category II EFM strip management including outcomes, applicable physiology, nomenclature, interventions and communication strategies.
