Hi, guys. What would you think of an OB Gyn doc who at 8pm on a sunday night posts an ectopic for ex-lap. Anesthesiologist. CRNA. OR Nurses come in from home. We get here. "ahh, yeah. She is stable. We are gonna do a c-section and then we will do her in a couple of hours.". ?

Appropriate behavior? Good judgement?

Just wondering as I sit here and wait.

There are not enough data to comment.

Was the ectopic lady hemodynamicaly stable? What were the exact details of the c-section case? Babies compromised? Mum at 9cm dilated with active herpes?

Physicians' priorities can change by the hour - and sometimes even by the minute.

A hemodynamically stable ectopic can wait a few hours. A lot of C sectins even though they are not crashes can be emergent
