The modern obstetric anaesthetist must not only provide safe and effective pain-relief in labour and anaesthesia for Caesarean section, but also understand the wider role of the anaesthetist in the management of the pregnant woman. Originally published in 2002, Textbook of Obstetric Anaesthesia is a comprehensive, fully illustrated account of all aspects of modern obstetric anaesthesia. It provides useful, practical, evidence-based information on all aspects of labour ward management. Written by a multidisciplinary team of expert contributors, it features comprehensive chapters covering everything from departmental audit to cutting-edge practice for neonatal resuscitation and administration of mobile epidurals. It will be useful for both the trainee and practising obstetric anaesthetist.Table of Contents 1. History of obstetric analgesia and anaesthesia2. Maternal physiology3.
