Maternal collapse

There is a good algorithm that you can print out on page 22. Remember that in BLS for a pregnant woman, you need a tilt to the left of 15°. This can be achieved by getting someone to put their knees under her right side. Remember that after 20/40, perimortem fetal delivery can save the mother’s life, so call for help early.
