A Simplified Approach
November 11-13, 2010
Our conference planning committee has assembled a world-class faculty to address the unique needs of the critically ill obstetric patient.
Held in beautiful Scottsdale/Phoenix, Arizona, this conference is designed to make the complex topic of critical care in obstetrics more understandable and simplified. The skill and expertise of the faculty and the comprehensive nature of the lecture topics are designed to address the needs of all of our colleagues, including maternal-fetal medicine specialists, obstetricians, midwives, nurse practitioners, nurses and allied health professionals who provide patient care in the obstetrical and neonatal intensive care arenas.

• Employ a more in-depth understanding of the management of obstetric hemorrhage, and obesity in pregnancy.
