Summary This updated edition originally published by W.B. Saunders, provides all aspects of obstetric medicine relevant to the anaesthetist are covered, from conception, throughout pregnancy, to after birth care. The emphasis is on pre-empting problems and maximising quality of care. The authors have identified over 150 potential complications each covered in two sections: issues raised and management options, with key points extracted into boxes for quick reference. A section on organisational aspects such as record keeping, training, protocols and guidelines makes this an important resource for any labour ward or hospital dealing with pregnant women. Presented in a clear, structured format, this book will be invaluable to trainee anaesthetists at all levels and to experienced anaesthetists who encounter obstetric patients. Obstetricians, neonatologists, midwives, nurses and operating department practitioners wishing to extend or update their knowledge will also find it highly beneficial
