The previous labour ward manual was updated in early 2010. Over the last 2 years, there have been a number of changes and development in obstetric practice. It is due to this reason an updated version of this manual becolabourmanual13mes necessary. It has also come to our knowledge that the previous manual was printed and used in other hospital in sarawak. It should be noted that the appropriate obstetric practice and plan of management for various clinical situations may differ slightly depending on the location, facilities, availability of clinical specialties and other support services. For the current manual some reference towards appropriate management in district hospital are included.

This is the 2nd reprient of the earlier publication and 2 additional topics on ‘Maternal Collapse’ and ‘Drugs in Pregnancy’ have been added.

We hope that this manual would serve as a useful guide to doctors managing obstetric patients in the labour ward.
