Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Periviable birth poses numerous clinical and ethical challenges for the practicing clinician. We review the data surrounding the administration of corticosteroids for fetal lung maturity, antibiotics in the case of preterm premature rupture of membranes, magnesium sulfate for cerebral palsy prophylaxis, fetal monitoring, and cesarean delivery. The ethical complexities of patient counseling are also reviewed with a recommendation toward shared decision making between patient and physician.
