Abstract

Shoulder dystocia is a clinical emergency that requires immediate recognition and prompt treatment to minimize maternal and neonatal sequelae. The nurse's role is to recognize and report associated risk factors for shoulder dystocia, respond with appropriate assistance, and monitor the woman and her newborn after delivery. The nurse's calm demeanor, knowledge of treatment modalities, and prepared response are valuable assets in this clinical dilemma.
