ABSTRACT

The use of limited ultrasound as a tool in obstetric triage has become increasingly popular. While most midwives only perform ultrasound in the third trimester, some institutions do include earlier sonographic testing as part of the midwifery management plan. This article addresses the professional issues related to limited ultrasound in obstetric triage protocol, the education and training needed to acquire the skill, the process for integrating the skill into clinical practice, and a discussion of obstetric triage procedures.
