SOPHIE Course – Safe Obstetric Practice for High risk and Emergency Course

SOPHIE’ stands for Safe Obstetric Practice for High risk & Emergency.

SOPHIE is not simply a training course on practical skills, but it also emphasizes on the wisdom (the meaning of ‘sophie’ in Greek) in applying those skills in real emergent situation, e.g.:

  • Pitfalls in interpreting CTG
  • Does HELPPER mnemonic help?
  • Which is the most suitable maneuver for different scenarios of cord prolapse
  • Tips on improving the success rate and safety of ECV
  • Tips on improving the success rate and safety in vaginal breech delivery
  • Tips on improving the success rate and safety in vaginal twin delivery
  • Why do uterotonic agents work, and how to combine the drugs and mechanical method in controlling PPH?
  • Is timing a critical factor for crash Caesarean?
  • Tips on safe instrumental delivery and second stage Caesarean section

The course is based on the experience and publication of Prof TY LEUNG and his perinatal team, especially in the following areas:
