Is it Futile to talk about Futility? The concept of medical futility has existed for millennia. While the dialogue and definitions surrounding this topic are useful, using the word 'futility' in the context of withdrawal or withholding treatment may be problematic. Learn more about this topic in our newly released episode with Host Dr Paul McConnell and Guest Dr Sonya Daniel, where they discuss why we should not only look into the 'medical best interest' of the patient but the 'best interests as a whole'.

Challenging Dogmas: Obstetric Anaesthesiology
Dogmas are everywhere in obstetric anaesthesia, perpetuated despite advances in science by anesthesiologists, parturients and other clinicians. Dogmas such as a belief that there is a minimum appropriate platelet level to perform epidural analgesia for labour safely may be difficult to change, but they can be challenged and updated through scientific advances and guidelines based upon the latest evidence, along with some common sense. Join Prof. Carolyn Weiniger, Chair of the Obstetric Anaesthesiology Subcommittee of ESAIC and Director of Obstetric Anesthesia in the Department of Anesthesia, Pain and Intensive Care of the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, and Prof. Emilia Guasch, Director of Obstetric Anesthesia in the Department of Anesthesia, La Paz University Hospital, Madrid Spain, WFSA Council Member and WFSA Obstetric Anesthesia Committee Member as we explore some perpetuating dogmas in obstetric anaesthesia and review evidence to help us make the best decisions for our patients in challenging circumstances.
