Eight Obstetric Anesthesia Fellows (2019-2020) will present findings from their research on genetic variants associated with preeclampsia, the use of ultrasound measurement of the optic nerve sheath as a window to assess intracranial pressure, early biomarkers associated with maternal epidural fever, rural and urban disparities in maternal care, simple yet novel clinical approaches to optimize uterine tone and reduce shivering during cesarean delivery, and what actually happens with a dural puncture epidural (DPE).

Ten presenters will share their findings from clinical protocols tailoring magnesium dosing in preeclamptic women, optimizing uterine tone during cesarean delivery, and artificial intelligence algorithms at the rescue to personalize hemodynamic  management during cesarean deliveries; big data analyses elucidating maternal outcomes associated with the Medicaid expansion, the MPOG registry to assess the rate of difficult intubation in obstetric patients and the risk of autism spectrum disorder in offsprings associated with labor epidural analgesia; bench research applying GWAS in postpartum hemorrhage, predictive multiomic changes in preterm labor, novel targets for the treatment of opioid-induced itching, and high-resolution thermography to ensure functioning epidural in neuraxial anesthesia research.

Management of women with rare complications such as intrathecal morphine-induced hypothermia, hemorrhagic stroke following an unintended intrathecal catheter, starvation ketoacidosis, and rare comorbidities such as pericardial and pleural effusions in preeclampsia, pentalogy of Fallot, primary hyperparathyroidism, and metastatic pancreatic cancer will be discussed.  The optimal care of the transgender parturient will also be reviewed.

Always a highlight of the meeting, the Gerard W.

George, FRCPC.  
This presentation will bring you up to date on the latest evidence- based advances in the anesthetic management of pregnant women. (tentatively a second session is scheduled for October 22nd, 2020 at 6PM EDT)
