HealthPhone: How to use a partograph


EnglishEnglish — Watch in French

A vital tool for the care of every woman in labour. The partograph is a graphic record of vital observations during the course of labour in order to assess its progress and carry out appropriate interventions if and when necessary. Correct use of the partograph can help prevent and manage prolonged or obstructed labour and serious complications, including ruptured uterus, obstetric fistula, and stillbirth. The partograph was developed in Africa (Zimbabwe in about 1970) and has become adopted worldwide.

This film forms part of a growing set of films on Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care for skilled health workers. As well as seeking medical and midwifery expert opinions, the following teaching materials were used in the making of these films - WHO/UNICEF/THET/Somaliland MoH EmONC trainng protocols 2012 - RCOG (Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology) Life Saving Skills Manual: Essential Obstetric and Newborn Care - RCOG PROMPT Manual (PRactical Obstetric Multi-Professional Training) - Resuscitation Council (UK) Guidelines
