Abstract

We will examine several ethical considerations in the resuscitation of infants born at the margin of gestational viability in analyzing a case of preterm labor. More specifically, we will discuss the obligations of physicians in characterizing expected outcomes, both mortality and long-term morbidity, for extremely premature infants and how potential adverse outcomes should be framed-as complications of prematurity itself or as iatrogenic complications of care. We will also explore how the concept of a "trial of therapy" can support parents and neonatologists in decision making concerning withholding or withdrawing care for periviable infants.
