About this Unit
The aim of this unit is to prepare the student for out-of-hospital care and management of obstetric, neo-natal and paediatric emergencies. It focuses on understanding human birth and development, normal and complicated delivery and the changes that occur in the pregnant woman. Developmental changes throughout childhood and the skills required to manage a broad range of clinical paediatric emergencies are explored.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Students are expected to have a complete WSU student paramedic uniform as described in the paramedicine student uniform guide. No uniform means the student is unable to participate in practical classes or undertake emergency ambulance placement. Students are expected to have their own stethoscope, safety googles, penlight torch and sphygmomanometer.
