About

The aim of this research project is to anonymously survey pregnant patients before the anaesthesiological consultation about their prior knowledge of planned neuroaxial procedures in the context of childbirth by conducting an online survey and to evaluate the sources of that information.

Full description

Within labour and delivery, neuroaxial anaesthesia (peridural or spinal anaesthesia) is commonly used in accordance with clinical practice guidelines. However, from a professional perspective, there are still questionable and incorrect statements about possible complications and side effects that cannot be justified medically. In an increasingly technological and networked society, the dissemination of medical information via various sources of information poses a potentially serious problem in terms of disinformation, and the correct classification of information is becoming more and more difficult. Anaesthesiologists are increasingly confronted with consultations in which, in addition to the actual informed consent for the intervention, extensive clarification of existing contradictory information is required. The aim of this research project is to survey pregnant patients prior to receiving an anaesthesiological consultation about their previous knowledge of the intended procedure by conducting an anonymous online survey.
