I wonder why it should hurt feelings when I say that there are no protocols. Protocols mean, that, this much pre op care, antacid, Antiemetic, evaluation, left lateral tilt, fluid preload, vaso pressors, PPH protocol,MRP drugs to relax uterus, intubation preparations, drugs and dosages, Prostodin and pitocin etc , what if spinal fails, preparation fo obst hyst, and so on.
We have text book and teachings, but no where is there a fixed printed protocol. There are recommendations and teachings, but nothing is put in black and white to adhere to the fixed line of management.
Our ppl practice what they feel right, what is available to them.
Every conference it is tought to us to have a guideline to practice, but still no protocol.
I would be really happy if any of our Indian hospital member can forward it to me. Each intitution, ( Including my own group) has the protocol, but, again not in a print. We all say that, this is how we do our cases.
