This extensively illustrated book provides an accessible and up-to-date introduction to obstetric anesthesia and analgesia. With only three principal authors, there is consistency of style within a comprehensive textbook that presents the basic science, pharmacology and clinical practice relevant to obstetric anesthesia. Chapters cover topics such as analgesia during labor, anesthesia and postoperative analgesia for cesarean delivery, major obstetric and anesthetic complications, evaluation of the fetus and resuscitation of the neonate, and common clinical scenarios such as management of pre-eclampsia, obesity, multiple gestation and co-existing disease.
