1/26/2011 - Second Air Force Commander Maj. Gen. Mary Kay Hertog, right, observes members of the 81st Inpatient Operations Squadron family birthing center staff as they begin an obstetric emergency simulation Jan. 12. From left, staff members are medical technician Senior Airman Katadrian Handley and nurses Cindy Butz and Lidia Landry. According to Maj. Amber Barker, maternal child flight commander, the exercise used patient simulator “Katrina” to replicate a breech delivery. Seven medics participated in the event, including medical technicians, nurses, a midwife and pediatrician. One simulation each month covers a variety of topics such as postpartum hemorrhage and emergency cesearean sections, and are held multiple times so all staff are covered.
