This lecture will be an in depth look at what is involved when meconium presents itself at birth. What the evidence based studies repeatedly say, what the guidelines state, and how the standards of care do not reflect the studies. This lecture will clearly explain and go through why meconium occurs, what meconium stained water means, and then how to proceed. It will offer tools for further inspection and decisive action when it is a problem. It will differentiate and discuss the different definitions between light, dark, thin, thick and particulate. A further understanding of Meconium Aspiration Syndrome MAS will be covered. The entire presentation will be based on the latest evidence-based studies regarding meconium, suctioning and intubation (its purpose and what it really does).
