PMF strives to make childbirth safer through training, education and research. Our aim has always been to make evidence based multi-professional obstetric emergencies training available to all.

The PROMPT Pre-hospital App is aimed primarily for Paramedic and Ambulance crews, but it will also be of interest to maternity carers and emergency department staff. Although the App is based on UK national guidance, it is likely to be useful outside the UK, including low-resource settings.

The content of the App is based on national guidance and best practice and has been extensively peer-reviewed by paramedics, midwives & obstetricians.

It includes specific information, algorithms and video clips for many urgent & emergency maternity situations, including: ectopic pregnancy and miscarriage, antepartum haemorrhage, eclampsia & hypertension, normal birth, pre-term & multiple births, cord prolapse, shoulder dystocia & postpartum haemorrhage.

Price: £4.99
