TEDx Talk: Simulation Necessary To Prepare for Birthing Emergencies
Is it ever okay for an inexperienced doctor to “practice” on you during a life-threatening emergency? Colonel Shad Deering is a high risk pregnancy doctor and Chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Uniformed Services University. He has delivered babies in 10 different states and a combat zone, been awarded the Bronze Star Medal, and created an obstetric emergency simulation program now in place throughout the world that focuses on saving mothers and babies. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
