A simple explanation of hysteroscopy - I particularly like the cutaways in the sagital plane that help you orientate - although please be aware that we usually use straight rigid scopes, not curved as in thisdemo

Prof Fiander's comment (from global health scoopit)
At best contraception saves lives, limits population explosion, protects the environment, improves quality of life but if ethical and human rights are ignored the practice becomes an abuse of human rights and destroys families. Quality, safety of services, informed choice without coercion must be forefront in fertility control.

Victoria Logan's comment, September 4, 2014 12:24 PM
This is very simplistic- the explanations around classification are good, but the description of treatments misses out whether treatment is required at all, and also how treatment decisions are made. Useful as a starting point in knowing what information is accessible to patients, but not strictly factually accurate or complete!

Mari Fflur Roberts's insight:

Clear and concise video with the aim of educating women as to the sign and symptoms of fibroids. There isn't much detail in the video itself of what a fibroid is etc. but there is a reasonably informative paragraph alongside the video. 

more...
Victoria Logan's comment, September 4, 2014 12:39 PM
Good description of some of the symptoms that fibroids can cause - however, the emphasis seems to be on what women with known fibroids should look out for. the author of the video appears to be advertising their own treatment, rather than reassuring on the benign nature of fibroids. Some of the claims are untrue - eg early action saves uteruses. I would not recommend using this video for learning about treatment, but it does give a useful description of symptoms that may lead to a diagnosis of fibroids (if you can think of it in reverse!) Please don't use it for anything else though

Brief visual demonstration of forceps delivery. Goes over the various parts of the instrument first then shows how it's used.

Victoria Logan's comment, July 8, 2014 4:41 PM
This is a good starter - some students may find the fact that there is no VoiceOver off putting, but the text is informative and necessarily brief. The prerequisites for attempting forceps are correct - you would be advised to read the green top guideline from the RCOG in conjunction with this video

Fastbleep: CTG Interpretation

Mari Fflur Roberts's insight:

This article includes an useful mnemonic for systematic interpretation of a CTG, as well as an example of a normal reading, and a short list of a few abnormalities and how to spot them.

Victoria Logan's comment, July 8, 2014 4:48 PM
The mnemonic is correct here - however, the description of the abnormalities is not entirely accurate. The best use of this resource would be to learn the mnemonic and then discuss the features on lots of CTGs with clinical staff on placement.

Menstrual Cycle - YouTube

class notes on the menstrual cycle

Victoria Logan's insight:

Mari's insight:

Good overview of the menstrual cycle - which hormones do what and when etc. The first part centres on a few diagrams, which I found useful. The end of the video is an animation (starts approx. 7 mins in) which I found less useful, though it does reiterate what was said in the first half, so may be good for cementing the knowledge in your brain. The video was made by an American high school teacher so should be reasonably reliable.

 

Victoria's insight:

I really liked this video because it presents thesame information in several different ways. I thought the highlighting on occasions was useful. In a lecture this might all go a bit fast, but the ability to pause and digest is useful.

One (slight) criticism - in the animation the annotation refers to whole body of the uterus as the endometrium - be aware that there is a myometrium as well.

Endometriosis What Is Endometriosis Female Reproductive Disorders - YouTube

Eve Conners's insight:

Although detailed clinical content is lacking in this video, I thought that it was a good resource for gaining a general idea of the topic.


The animation plays once with audio and then again without audio (but with keywords displayed onscreen), allowing students to concentrate on the animation.

This resource is freely available on YouTube.

Victoria Logan's comment, June 14, 2014 1:48 PM
A good starter explanation. This video demonstrates retrograde menstruation (endometrial tissue is transported up the Fallopian tubes and into the pelvis.) this is one theory of the origin of endometriosis - try and research others as well. It does not go into any details about how a clinician would diagnose or treat the condition - try working this out before looking up the answers!

Easy to understand explanation - we usually advise avoiding sexual intercourse from the initial diagnosis, not just later in pregnancy. Also, not sure about the increased risk with previous miscarriage - that's not one I've heard before.

Alongside discussing the physiological effects of hormonal contraception, this lecture also focuses on some of the most common questions that you may be asked by patients on this subject. The lecture probably contains more information than you would need to know as a student, but is good for anyone with a keen interest in this topic.

Endometrial Cancer Etiology and Treatment - YouTube

Endometrial Cancer- the most common gynecologic cancer in the US. This video describes the etiology and treatment, including robotic hysterectomy and staging.
Mari Fflur Roberts's insight:

Quite a long video on endometrial cancer. Mainly focuses on treatment including a video of a laparoscopic hysterectomy. The video is American so I'm not sure how much it differs from UK practices.

Victoria Logan's comment, July 8, 2014 4:32 PM
Quite an interesting video, mainly from the point of view of demonstrating anatomy. There are no Gynae units using robotics in Wales, but laparoscopic Hysterectomy is probably not vastly different. The ASTEC trial determined that it was not necessary to remove lymph nodes in stage 1 endometrial cancer - see the FIGO website for classification of Gynae cancers

Victoria Logan's insight:

This is a good illustration of the process of placental abruption. The pace is quite slow and measured, and on the downside the narrator is not the most personable, but still overall very useful.

One thing to be aware of - abruption is NOT ruled out by ultrasound - by the time it's big enough to see you've probably already diagnosed it clinically!
