A very succinct, clear & easy overview of ectopic pregnancies. Much of the management, however, is directed towards in-hospital care, however, a good paramedic should realise what they need to do for these women.

The topic of Ectopic Pregnancy was well presented and easy to understand with enough information relevant to practise. This condition is indeed a medical emergency and requires a team effort with thorough history and physical assessment and appropriate interventions to ensure early as possible diagnosis and management.
