About the Authors
  • Anaesthetists on labour wards form an important part of the multi-disciplinary team. In addition to providing analgesia and anaesthesia, they are also involved in the acute management of conditions related to pregnancy, and coordinate and plan the care of patients with coexisting medical diseases. This requires an understanding of specialized obstetric procedures and the terminology and conditions unique to obstetrics. Obstetrics for Anaesthetists is a practical manual designed to provide anaesthetists with a clear knowledge of obstetrics and the implications this will have on their anaesthetic practice. Each chapter includes algorithms for the management of obstetric emergencies and text boxes highlighting the anaesthetic implications of a condition. Edited by an obstetric anaesthetist and an obstetrician, and with contributions from many leading practitioners, Obstetrics for Anaesthetists is an invaluable practical guide to all aspects of obstetrics relevant to anaesthetic practice.

    • Directs reader to important national and international guidelines for their practice
    • Quick access to evidence-based management plans
    • Contains flow charts for obstetric emergencies, providing at-a-glance guidance

    'The aim of this book is to provide a core understanding of obstetrics relevant to anaesthetic practice … this is accomplished with clarity and great readability. A pocket-sized paperback, this is a concise manual of obstetric terminology and procedures with implications for anaesthesia. It will be of value not only to anaesthetists but to a wider audience including obstetric trainees and midwives … It is easy to read, provides essential basic obstetric information and is a useful quick reference handbook.' International Journal of Obstetric Anaesthesia
