Importance: The tort liability system is intended to serve 3 functions: compensate patients who sustain injury from negligence, provide corrective justice, and deter negligence. Deterrence, in theory, occurs because clinicians know that they may experience adverse consequences if they negligently injure patients. Objective: To review empirical findings regarding the association between malpractice liability risk (ie, the extent to which clinicians face the threat of being sued and having to pay damages) and health care quality and safety. Data Sources and Study Selection: Systematic search of multiple databases for studies published between January 1, 1990, and November 25, 2019, examining the relationship between malpractice liability risk measures and health outcomes or structural and process indicators of health care quality. Data Extraction and Synthesis: Information on the exposure and outcome measures, results, and acknowledged limitations was extracted by 2 reviewers. Meta-analytic pooling was not possible due to variations in study designs; therefore, studies were summarized descriptively and assessed qualitatively. Main Outcomes and Measures: Associations between malpractice risk measures and health care quality and safety outcomes. Exposure measures included physicians' malpractice insurance premiums, state tort reforms, frequency of paid claims, average claim payment, physicians' claims history, total malpractice payments, jury awards, the presence of an immunity from malpractice liability, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' Medicare malpractice geographic practice cost index, and composite measures combining these measures. Outcome measures included patient mortality; hospital readmissions, avoidable admissions, and prolonged length of stay; receipt of cancer screening; Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality patient safety indicators and other measures of adverse events; measures of hospital and nursing home quality; and patient satisfaction. Results: Thirty-seven studies were included; 28 examined hospital care only and 16 focused on obstetrical care. Among obstetrical care studies, 9 found no significant association between liability risk and outcomes (such as Apgar score and birth injuries) and 7 found limited evidence for an association. Among 20 studies of patient mortality in nonobstetrical care settings, 15 found no evidence of an association with liability risk and 5 found limited evidence. Among 7 studies that examined hospital readmissions and avoidable initial hospitalizations, none found evidence of an association between liability risk and outcomes. Among 12 studies of other measures (eg, patient safety indicators, process-of-care quality measures, patient satisfaction), 7 found no association between liability risk and these outcomes and 5 identified significant associations in some analyses. Conclusions and Relevance: In this systematic review, most studies found no association between measures of malpractice liability risk and health care quality and outcomes. Although gaps in the evidence remain, the available findings suggested that greater tort liability, at least in its current form, was not associated with improved quality of care.

As far as prehospital but in part also clinical obstetrics is concerned, the acute nature of perinatal emergencies is overshadowed by limited diagnostic and therapeutic options. The need for acute and targeted intervention may result from both maternal and fetal indications. As common in emergency services for pregnant women, prehospital primary assessment and logistics management (e.g., transport time/type, choice of destination) define the prognosis. Non-specific emergencies coincident to pregnancy are to be distinguished from perinatal emergencies caused by expecting a child (hypertensive pregnancy disorders, perinatal bleeding, thrombosis, and embolism). In order to cope with rare and unpredictable emergencies, medical teams profit from standardized algorithms to support a high quality of prehospital care. Extensive information and training concepts are essential. The presented series on obstetric emergencies introduces the required knowledge and skills.

Menopause requires the implementation of organized screening and dedicated care pathways in collaboration with the attending physician, the gynaecologist-obstetrician and the cardiovascular physician. It will be necessary to take into account the hormonal specificities of the cardiovascular risk, in order to know-how to properly prescribe hormonal treatments.

Both cesarean surgery and induction of labor have become common procedures performed in all labor wards in an attempt to reduce adverse obstetrical and neonatal outcomes. Thus, recent evidence, led by the ARRIVE Trial, demonstrated that elective induction at 39 weeks reduced the rates of cesarean deliveries and of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. However, some concerns must be addressed, as the benefits of universal policies have to be outweighed with the current circumstances of implementation, the economic impact, the number of procedures needed to effectively reduce complications, and, above all, women's perception towards this approach. Therefore, it would be interesting to explore individualization strategies, instead of general recommendations, to offer personalized care.

Menometrorrhagia is a frequent bleeding symptom in young women, and may be related to an inherited bleeding disorder. If there is no gynecological etiology, hemostasis tests are required. The early medical management of these teenage girls is important, especially when a bleeding disorder is known. The bleeding risk of the first periods may then be anticipated. Afterwards, the objective of the treatment is to keep the bleeding symptoms under control: anti-fibrinolytic treatment, specific replacement therapy for bleeding disorder and hormonal treatment. This management requires a multidisciplinary medical team, mainly hematologist and gynecologist, all along the genital lifespan, from the first periods to the desire for pregnancy.

OBJECTIVE: To explore the knowledge of Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD) concepts among midwives and obstetricians and to identify barriers and facilitators for clinicians to engage women and their partners before or early in pregnancy on risk factors associated with DOHaD, and thus to embed the concept of DOHaD in routine clinical practice. METHODS: A qualitative study using semi-structured interviews will be conducted in Ghana, India, Pakistan, Brazil, the UK, and USA in collaboration with the International Confederation of Midwives and the International Federation of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Participants will be contacted via email and telephone interviews will be conducted until data saturation followed by inductive thematic analysis. RESULTS: Findings from this exploratory study will provide new knowledge about the perspectives of midwives and obstetricians on DOHaD and their role in preventing the intergenerational passage of non-communicable disease (NCD) risk and improving preconception care. CONCLUSION: This study will help us understand the current use of DOHaD principles in international maternity care and how this can be improved. Bringing DOHaD to clinical practice will help healthcare practitioners adopt a long-term approach in the prevention of NCDs and childhood obesity and will help women to enter pregnancy in optimum health.

INTRODUÇÃO: A violência apresenta várias faces e, nesse contexto, pode ocorrer no cenário das instituições de saúde a violência obstétrica, que pode ser definida por qualquer ato ou conduta que venha a causar morte, sofrimento seja de ordem sexual, física ou psicológica à mulher, que pode ocorrer em instituições públicas ou privadas. OBJETIVO: Analisar as experiências de trabalho de parto e parto de mulheres que sofreram violência obstétrica. MÉTODO: Estudo descritivo, transversal, com abordagem qualitativa. Desenvolveu-se em Unidades Básicas de Saúde (UBS) do município de Juazeiro do Norte, região Sul do Ceará, Brasil. Foram convidadas a participar do estudo mulheres que sofreram violência obstétrica no referido município e que estivessem cadastradas em UBS desta mesma cidade. Os critérios de inclusão, mulheres que foram mães em um período de até seis meses e sofreram violência obstétrica. Para a coleta de dados, realizou-se uma entrevista semiestruturada, utilizando-se do critério de saturação dos dados. Para a interpretação dos resultados foi utilizada a técnica de análise de conteúdo. RESULTADOS: O estudo evidenciou que as mulheres sentiram medo, insegurança e ficaram de fato assustadas em estar no ambiente da maternidade. Revelou que à assistência precisa ser modificada, com maior clareza, até para os profissionais, sobre a violência obstétrica. Notou-se que as mulheres não souberam identificar ao certo o que é violência obstétrica e de que forma sofreu essa violência. E por fim, percebeu-se que essa violência afeta no vinculo do binômio mãe-filho. CONCLUSÃO: É preciso uma assistência humanizada e qualificada a estas mulheres neste momento tão delicado e importante de suas vidas.

INTRODUCTION: Violence has many faces and, in this context, may occur in the setting of health institutions obstetric violence, act or conduct based on gender, causing death, damage or suffering of a physical, sexual or psychological nature to women, both in the public sphere and in private. OBJECTIVE: To analyze the labor and delivery experiences of women who suffered obstetric violence. METHODS: Descriptive, cross-sectional study with qualitative approach, developed at Primary Health Centers (UBS) of the municipality of Juazeiro do Norte, southern region of Ceará, Brazil. Women registered in UBS of this city who suffered obstetric violence were invited to participate in the study. The inclusion criteria were women who were mothers in a period of up to six months and who suffered obstetric violence. Data collection used a semi-structured interview, using the data saturation criterion. The interpretation of the results used the content analysis technique. RESULTS: The study showed that these women felt fear, insecurity and were actually scared to be in the maternity setting. It revealed the need for care change, and the need for more clarity, even for professionals, on obstetric violence. These women do not know for sure what obstetric violence is and the way they suffered this violence. Finally, the study showed that this violence affects the bond of the mother-child binomial. CONCLUSION: It is necessary to provide humanized and qualified assistance to these women at this very delicate and important time in their lives.

Transgender men are assigned female at birth, but self-identify as male. Although some transgender men undergo gender-affirming hormonal treatment and/or surgery that preclude pregnancy, many (if not most) retain their female reproductive organs and, as a result, their capacity to become pregnant. Although the visibility of the transgender community has increased, the exposure of healthcare providers to transgender individuals, especially transgender men during pregnancy, as well as research that addresses evidence-based practice remain limited. In this review, we discuss obstetrical issues for transgender men who are ≥35 years old, termed the "new" advanced paternal age. We review preconception care and focus on fertility issues, the impact of stopping gender-affirming hormonal treatment, and age-appropriate health maintenance. We review antepartum and postpartum care, including labor and delivery, monitoring for perinatal depression, contraception, and chest feeding. Finally, we conclude with suggestions for areas for further research and study.

In order to avoid fluid overload, the use of more concentrated drug solutions in intensive care units and obstetrics is common. The objective of this study was to quantify the physicochemical stability of a concentrated solution of salbutamol (albuterol) in polypropylene syringes during 30 days of storage at 5°C ± 3°C with protection from light. Four 50-mL syringes containing 0.060mg/mL of salbutamol (albuterol) in 0.9% NaCl were prepared and stored at 5°C ± 3°C with protection from light during 30 days of storage. Immediately after preparation and periodically during the storage, salbutamol (albuterol) concentrations were measured by an ultra-performance liquid chromatography. Spectrophotometric absorbance at different wavelengths, pH measurement, and microscopic observations were also performed. All solutions were physicochemically stable during the entire period of storage at 5°C ± 3°C: no color change, turbidity, precipitation or opacity, significant pH variations, or optic densities were observed in the solutions. No crystals were seen by microscopic analysis. Concentrations of salbutamol remained stable during the storage period. Solutions of salbutamol (albuterol) 0.060 mg/mL in syringes of 0.9% NaCl are physically and chemically stable for at least 30 days when stored in syringes at 5°C ± 3°C with protection from light and may be prepared in advance by a centralized intravenous additive service.
