In this podcast we cover something fairly rare that if all goes well shouldn’t even present to the ED. Though we all know that no matter how good systems are things don’t always go according to plan and it may well end up in the ED. Rumours have it that this has appeared on a certain emergency medicine examination at some point and complications of pregnancy certainly fits within the curriculum.
