Assisting with Patient Care

This section will cover all patient care aspects the OB Tech is typically required to perform on a regular basis, outside of the OR. This includes, general charting, recording vital signs, and basic care of the patient.

Surgical Instruments

This section covers the most commonly used surgical tools and instruments used for OB/GYN-related procedures, as the OB Tech handles such equipment.

Operating Room Technique

A large portion of an OB Tech's time and duties is spent in the OR, assisting both nurses and physicians with OB/GYN-related procedures, such as C-Sections, routine labor and delivery, as well as any OB/GYN-related procedure, such as hysterectomies. This section tests your knowledge of your role in the OR.

Maternity Nursing

This section covers maternity on a Registered Nurse's level to the OB Technician, as the OB Tech reports to and works directly with the RN in this position. This is material that all OB Technicians should be familiar with after 6 months of working directly with the nurses and physicians and OB/GYN team.

Knowledge of hysterectomies, C-sections, and neonatal care prior to the infant being transported to the mother or the nursery is necessary to pass this exam.
