Évaluation des connaissances et des pratiques des médecins urgentistes normands concernant l’embolie de liquide amniotique

Abstract : Amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) is a rare and fatal pregnancy complication. Literature is clearly consistent in reporting that improved optimisation of early management influences survival. The main objective of the study is to assess the knowledge of emergency physicians on amniotic fluid embolism. The secondary objective is to estimate the frequency, level of training, and requirement for specific training concerning pregnant women and relevant medical care. A questionnaire was sent by email to 238 emergency doctors practicing in the Normandy Region between 23 October 2018 and 6 January 2019. The participation rate is 24%. 9% of respondents have already been confronted with amniotic fluid embolism. To obtain a relevant answer to our question, we have divided the emergency physicians into two groups, based on age, in order to analyse and identify differences in the evolution of practices and training. 55% of emergency physicians are moderately comfortable with the fact of providing medical care for a pregnant woman during a medical intervention with the mobile emergency and intensive care services. With 93% of responses in favour of training courses concerning pregnant women, this study reveals a clear interest for optimising training programs on pathologies and complications of pregnancy, essentially through high fidelity simulation. Knowledge of the symptoms and medical care management of AFE by emergency physicians will be the subject of a summary logical diagram.
