This article reviews the care of a patient who presents with an ectopic pregnancy and the nursing management that is necessary to attend to her. Ectopic pregnancies are obstetric and surgical emergencies and can cause death if the patient is not adequately treated. By applying general basic nursing principles, nurses can recognise this emergency and be prepared for it.
