About the Authors
  • This new addition to the highly successful Core Topics in Anaesthesia series provides a clinically relevant text for both trainees and consultants, covering the entire sub-specialty of obstetric anaesthesia. In-depth coverage of pregnancy-related physiology and pharmacology makes this book an excellent revision tool for basic science examinations. It is also a troubleshooting guide for anaesthetists when managing parturients suffering with concurrent medical conditions including obesity, sepsis, hypertensive, renal, respiratory, neurological, haematological and endocrine diseases. Chapters provide recommended management plans for specific conditions such as HIV and neuropraxia following regional anaesthesia, and include algorithms to guide clinical decision-making. Guidance on the required infrastructure for setting up services such as antenatal clinics is also included. Experts in their fields have contributed sections including allergy testing and immunology, the immunocompromised parturient, and maternal collapse. This practical resource will serve as a survival guide for all those caring for parturients on the delivery suite.

    • Includes clear anaesthetic considerations for patients with complex co-morbidities and recommended management plans for specific conditions
    • Provides guidance on the required infrastructure for setting up services such as antenatal clinics and suggestions for multidisciplinary team education (not addressed in other similar texts)
    • An international team of expert obstetric anaesthetists and intensivists have contributed to this up-to-date reference

    'Core Topics in Obstetric Anesthesia is a welcome addition to the growing field of obstetric anesthesia. This book is well written, organized, and easy to understand. Senior physicians, fellows, and residents can use it alike … Difficult subjects are explained in a very clear manner. There are also excellent figures and flowcharts throughout the book that help with retention of the material. The presentation of information in tables is extremely useful.' Sharon Orbach, Anesthesia and Analgesia
