Nathan Riley, MD, is an OBGYN and hospice physician in Louisville, KY. He also works remotely as a telehealth palliative care physician for Resolution Care. He is also the host of the Obgyno Wino Podcast (link to: www.obgynowino.com), and, later this year, he will be launching a biodynamic wellness service to address the multitude of women's health issues for which Western medicine is not equipped to manage (link to: www.belovedholistics.com). When he's not connecting with his patients, you can find him mountain biking, climbing, gardening, or tossing his daughter dangerously high in the air.

Abstract:

Attendees will come to understand the underlying physiology behind antenatal surveillance methods, including non-stress testing, biophysical profiling, amniotic fluid assessment, and fetal Doppler velocimetry. Many pregnant families have difficulty understanding the nature of antenatal fetal surveillance, and have even more challenge deciphering the results. This lecture will help practitioners effectively counsel pregnant patients on result interpretation and provide tools to help families make educated decisions based on the antenatal fetal surveillance results.

Abstract:

Since the 2008, perinatal professionals have been categorizing electronic fetal heart monitoring (EFM) strips according to the nomenclature, provided by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). Category II strip management can be difficult due to interpretation, communication and variance in predicted and actual fetal outcomes. This presentation reviews three actual cases of Category II EFM strip management including outcomes, applicable physiology, nomenclature, interventions and communication strategies.

U.S.A. Karen H. Strange, CPM, AAP/NRP Instructor, CKC

Karen H. Strange is a Certified Professional Midwife (1996), American Academy of Pediatrics/Neonatal Resuscitation Program Instructor (1992).

She is founder of the Integrative Resuscitation of the Newborn workshop, which includes the physiology of newborn transition. She teaches the “when, why and how” of helping newborns that are either not breathing or not breathing well, with incredible clarity. She helps the provider have a sense of what the baby is experiencing which leads to a more appropriate response to newborns in need. Karen has done over 900+ hours of debrief/case reviews regarding resuscitation. She is an international speaker and has taught over 9,000 people worldwide. There are many neonatal resuscitation instructors but Karen teaches practical neonatal resuscitation, regardless of the place of birth. And her teachings instill a strong sense of confidence and competence in providers, so they can respond in the least traumatic way.

Abstract:

Karen Strange offers midwives a new way to think about Fetal Heart Tones (FHT). She teaches how to accurately listen to FHTs, and identifies when to listen more. Karen breaks down the ominous signs and flags to watch for during labor. Then takes us through a few labor stories with examples. And as always, Karen teaches in her no-nonsense way while instilling clarity and confidence, that you can apply immediately to your practice.

Abstract:

Electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) was introduced into widespread clinical practice in the 1970-80s on the premise that it would help detect abnormal fetal heart rate patterns thought to be associated with fetal hypoxia, and thereby allow earlier intervention to prevent fetal neurological damage or death. Despite the recognised limitations of EFM, it’s use has become ubiquitous particularly in high-income countries. In this presentation, Declan will be address the evidence underpinning the use of EFM and in particular the use of cardiotocography. His presentation will focus largely on findings from Cochrane systematic reviews related to aspects of fetal monitoring including how to read and interpret forest plots, which are a common means of presenting the findings of meta analyses of the effects of interventions on outcomes. Within his talk, Declan will highlight examples of discordance between evidence, practice and practice guidelines.
