Key points of this webinar:  

  • Women with COVID-19 should be offered labour epidural analgesia wherever possible 
  • Cesarean delivery appears more likely according to published series of COVID-19 
  • Strategies including early labour analgesia may avoid the need for general anaesthesia for cesarean delivery 
  • During cesarean delivery, general anaesthesia may be required, and appropriate protection should be available to the medical team
  • Symptoms of COVID-19  such as fever should not be confused with common obstetric conditions such as chorioamnionitis  

 

Learning Objectives:
This webinar will enable caregivers of patients with COVID-19 to: 

  • Understand the challenges to manage obstetric patients with COVID-19, including identification, screening, tools for setting up a suitable environment in the labour ward, family member presence and postpartum recovery and considerations for the safety of anaesthesiologists
  • Learn decision paradigms for providing timely efficient labour analgesia to women with COVID-19, with specific consideration of the sick patient
  • Discuss management of cesarean delivery including mode of anaesthesia and minimizing the need for emergency care through timely early decisions
