Maternal – Fetal Interventions

Maternal – Fetal Interventions

In this episode, Dr. Mark Rollins and Dr. Chatterjee, two leading experts in anesthesia for maternal-fetal intervention, share their knowledge with us. Specifically, we discussed fetal benefits and preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative management for this delicate procedure in which two patients are undergoing surgical intervention under our care. Should we provide analgesia directly or indirectly to the fetus? How can we achieve the tenet goal of excellent uterine relaxation without compromising placental perfusion? Is the use of Sugammadex warranted for midgestation fetal interventions? These and much more were discussed during this Podcast.
