The provision of anesthesia during childbirth still generates considerable debate; opinions vary widely within the obstetric anesthesia community over issues such as the effect of anesthetic drugs on the fetal brain and the choice between different epidural techniques. Controversies in Obstetric Anesthesia and Analgesia debates these and other clinical management controversies encountered in daily practice, providing practical advice on how to manage each clinical problem. This concise, practical text is designed to provide rapid access to key information on both diagnosis and treatment, presenting each side of the debate in a clear discussion. Key references and suggestions for further reading are also provided. Written by a team of international practitioners working with and caring for high risk obstetric patients, Controversies in Obstetric Anesthesia and Analgesia is an invaluable resource for trainees and practitioners in anesthesia, obstetrics and critical care medicine.
