Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Obstetrics/Gynecology Volume 61, Issue 02: Fetal and Maternal Challenges.
The goals of this program are to improve diagnosis and treatment of aneuploidy and preeclampsia. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Compare the sensitivity and specificity of noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT) with current screening methods using serum markers and ultrasonography for nuchal translucency.
2. Counsel a patient about the advantages and disadvantages of available methods of prenatal assessment.
3. Recognize provider- and system-related factors that are responsible for preventable maternal deaths.
4. List the major risk factors for eclampsia.
5. Manage a patient with preeclampsia based on disease severity and gestational age.
The original programs were presented by Mary E. Norton, MD, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Stanford University School of Medicine, Palo Alto, CA, and Sarah J. Kilpatrick, MD, PhD, Professor, the Helping Hand of Los Angeles Endowed Chair, and Chair, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology; Associate Dean for Faculty Development, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA.
