During this time I also included Ellise by tailoring my communication and explaing that her baby was happy and how I was intereting the CTG (PARTNERSHIP). I also recoginsed that Ellise’s contractions were not as regular as we would like and quaried this with Amanda as I was unfimilar with the management of syntocinon. Amanda turn the syntocinon rate up as per the guidelines she was following which state to do so until four contractions in ten minutes have been achieved (ADHB, 2013). In recognition of my limited knowledge I asked Amanda appropriate questions to maximise my learning as I learn very well from practicing and observing rather than reading or writing (COMPETENCE). I was aware of the risks of syntocinon infusions and ensured I paid particular attention to how the baby responded, ensuring no fetal distress as a result of hyperstimulation and tachysytole (ADHB, 2013; RANZCOG, N.D) (COMPETENCE; PRACTICE REASONING).
