Episode 1.12 Late antenatal steroids, obesity and risk of fetal demise, and abuse of P-values
In this episode, we discuss a new article with some negative findings relating to administration of antenatal steroids to fetuses who go on to deliver at term. Then we revisit the literature that led to the recommendation for antenatal testing in obese patients. Finally, we discuss manipulation of P-values and the American Statistical Association’s statements about the use of P-values and the term “statistical significance.”
Are newborn outcomes different for term babies who were exposed to antenatal corticosteroids?
