Obstetric Anesthesia and Uncommon Disorders


Obstetric Anesthesia and Uncommon Disorders

This new edition of Obstetric Anesthesia and Uncommon Disorders is a crucial resource for practitioners suddenly faced with a parturient who has an unusual medical or surgical condition. The book considers both the impact of a condition on pregnancy, labor and delivery, or the fetus and the impact of pregnancy on a condition or the effect of therapy for the disorder on the fetus or neonate. Case reports and experience from the world literature and clinical advice from many specialists have been drawn together by an international team of editors and contributors who are leading experts in the field. Clear, concise management guidelines and algorithms are provided, and each chapter is written from the viewpoint of the obstetric anesthesiologist. Obstetric Anesthesia and Uncommon Disorders continues to be an invaluable resource for any anesthesiologist involved in the clinical management of these complex patients.


 Reviews:

"There is no alternative to a well written book like this one...it should be available to anyone covering obstetric anesthesia, whether a resident in training or a consultant anesthesiologist."
--Doody's Review Service

"This book is remarkably inexpensive for such a rich treasure trove of invaluable information. A bible for obstetric anaesthetic pre-assessment clinics, this is an invaluable reference source for every anaesthetist responsible for emergency care, whether on the shop floor of an obstetric unit or on-call from home covering general emergencies."
--International Journal of Obstetric Anesthesia

Review of the first edition: '… covering conditions as diverse as cystic fibrosis, acute severe asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, and transplants … it is a must for every delivery suite.' British Journal of Anaesthesia

Review of the second edition: '… this book is remarkably inexpensive for such a rich treasure trove of invaluable information. A bible for obstetric anaesthetic pre-assessment clinics, this is an invaluable reference source for every anaesthetist responsible for emergency care, whether on the shop floor of an obstetric unit or on-call from home covering general emergencies …' International Journal of Obstetric Anesthesia

Review of the hardback: 'There are an increasing number of patients who, through modern medicine and techniques, are reaching reproductive years, notably those who have undergone cardiac surgery in childhood for congenital heart disease. This second edition covers the important anaesthetic implications of the most common abnormalities, whilst acknowledging that advice is based on case reports and expert opinion in the absence of extensive randomised case controlled studies. It is important that we in the delivery suite and high risk pre-assessment clinic have up to date, easily accessible and understandable information surrounding these conditions and their potential problems. This second edition fulfils this role and should be available in every obstetric unit.' Anaesthesia
