Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Anesthesiology Volume 55, Issue 42: Analgesia for Labor.
The goal of this program is to improve safety in labor analgesia. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Describe the physiology of labor and the associated pain.
2. Explain the risks and benefits of loss of resistance to air vs saline for epidural placement.
3. Select the patients who will benefit from combined spinal epidural labor analgesia.
4. Identify and treat postdural puncture headache.
5. Cite data concerning the relationship between elevated maternal temperature and epidural analgesia.
The original programs were presented by Robert R. Gaiser, MD, MSEd, Professor of Anesthesiology and Critical Care, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania; Director, Obstetrical Anesthesiology and Critical Care, Vice Chair for Education, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.
