Resolute and rapid action in obstetric emergencies is essential for the child and/or maternal survival. Therefore emergency caesarean section and the emergency actions for peripartal haemorrhage, shoulder dystocia, fetal bradycardia, hypertension and embolism should be interdisciplinarily coordinated. Interdisciplinary emergency concepts for the major complications could help to optimise their therapy taking structural conditions and legal requirements into account. Emergency concepts should include the alarm- procedure, communication, logistics, the priority steps in therapy as well as the analysis of the passed obstetric emergency. A regular interdisciplinary training of the major obstetric emergencies may help to avoid unnecessary loss of time.
