Instructional Technique Videos
Here you’ll find several instructional videos created in collaboration with the Carlos Slim Foundation. The last four videos demonstrate techniques for managing obstetric and neonatal emergencies. They are designed to help doctors, nurses, and other care providers refresh their knowledge of skills learned during PRONTO training. These videos only available in Spanish at this time.

This scenario involves a normal birth. Filmed in Nairobi, Kenya at the University of Nairobi College of Health Sciences, various clinicians took part in this simulation. In this scenario, the patient arrived in labor with her traditional midwife.
All participants were given the following information before beginning the simulation: The patient is a 22-years-old, G3P1011 at 40 weeks and 1 day. She arrived 2 hours ago at 6 cm/ 100% effaced/ – 2 station. She was tired and dehydrated, and was given 1000 mL of Lactated Ringers. She is now at 10cm / fully effaced/ +2 station, with urge to push. Her IV is running at 125 ml/hour.
When the participants enter the room the baby is crowning. The provider prepares for the birth. Once the baby is born, it immediately cries. The birth is followed by a normal placenta delivery. The scenario ends when the placenta is out and the participants have responded to maternal and neonatal needs.
This scenario involves a birth complicated by shoulder dystocia. Filmed in Nairobi, Kenya at the University of Nairobi College of Health Sciences, various clinicians took part in this simulation.
All participants were given the following information before beginning the simulation: The patient is a 22-year-old, Gestation: 3; Births: 2; 39 weeks. She has had premature rupture of membranes without labor for 12 hours. She rrived at the hospital 1 hour ago at 8cm dilation.
The scenario starts with her in the delivery room with at C/C/0 and FHR 120. She has an IV with LR at 125 mL/hr. The provider arrives to attend the birth, there is a moderate shoulder dystocia. The baby comes out flaccid. The providers have to perform the correct steps of NR. After the placenta delivers, the patient starts bleeding due to severe atony. The scenario ends when they have administered all available medications appropriately and have prevented shock.
