The Guidelines for Barts & the London NHS Trust gives a clear guide to commence sliding scale for established labourer and planned Caesarian.

Hope this will answer your query.

In Nottingham we had two large Teaching Hospitals which merged 2 years ago. Although one Trust now there remains slightly different management in Labour although the use of a sliding scale where necessary is a part of management.

 

I posted a question this week on the Network however about the management of women to require pre-term steroids as there are notable differences in management with my two hospitals and I want a consensus of opinion from my Endocrine and Obstetric Consultants. I have been employed since June 2010 and part of my role was to ensure standardisation of care over both sites. At a recent cross-town meeting there was a request to find out the practices of other regions and to see if nationally there was consensus of management care. From all the e-mails I received I can say nationally there seems a variety of care provided but all with the same goals and outcomes i.e. good/or the best glucose control under the circumstances. If anyone has seen any published papers specifically on this topic I would be interested to see them.

Hi Sooi-Mai,

Would you be willing to let me have a copy of the Barts& the London NHS Trust guidelines?

Or is there someone else I should approach?

Many thanks
