This handbook covers all aspects of obstetric anaesthesia the trainee anaesthetist will encounter when on the labour ward, and its accessible style makes it essential reading for other members of the labour ward team. Broken down into topics, with bullet points, boxes and quick-reference clinical information throughout, this is an invaluable text for anyone involved in this challenging subspecialty area.
In addition to conventional chapters covering maternal physiology, pathophysiology, and obstetric regional and general anaesthetic techniques, there is practical and useful advice on how to survive on the labour ward and anticipate potential problems. A chapter is dedicated to the important and often neglected area of the antenatal identification and preparation of mothers with potential for anaesthetic problems during childbirth Postnatal review of the mothers who have received attention from the anaesthetist during labour is also comprehensively covered.
There is practical advice on caring for the sick mother suffering major hemorrhage, hypertensive and embolic diseases, and a chapter devoted to managing the collapsed and compromised parturient.
The final section is a comprehensive and easily navigated A-Z of the less common conditions encountered in mothers on the delivery ward including references for further reading.
