Episiotomy Workshop

Last Thursday, we had to attend Episiotomy Workshop at Seminar Room 3 and 4, JHC. It was held from 8am till 5pm, sponsored by B Braun Company. It was very educational.

The image is a bit unclear, but still readable. Sorry for that.

Suturing of the perineum done by Shake and I on a model. Above is the vaginal opening and below is the anal opening.

By the way, episiotomy means a surgical incision of the perineum to enlarge the vagina, to facilitate delivery during childbirth.

We have to observe 3 epi and perform 2 repairs!

Souvenir from B Braun during Quiz Session. Thanks to Amirah Lotpi, her note helped a lot ;)

The Official Slip Result

Passing marks for Theory is 50% while for Clinical is >100. 

You have to pass both Theory and Clinical in order to pass the posting.

Your ranking is mainly determined by your Clinical marks. Even if your friend scored higher marks in Theory but lower marks than you in Clinical, your ranking is above her/him because you scored high Clinical marks. Got it?

If you got 49 marks in short case (that's a fail), but 54 marks in Long Case, making a total of 103 marks altogether, you still pass!

We didn't get to know about our OBA and PMP marks? Hmm...

ps. Yeah, I failed the MCQ btw. That's normal ;)
