Book description

Now in its fourth edition, Analgesia, Anaesthesia and Pregnancy is a concise guide to obstetric anaesthesia and analgesia. This essential text reviews every topic and clinical challenge faced during delivery and focuses on pre-empting problems and maximising quality of care. It also covers acute emergencies related to pregnancy. This new edition features eleven new chapters that cover the significant updates in the field over the last few years. Presented in a clearly structured format, this practical guide will be an invaluable source of key information for any anaesthetist encountering obstetric patients, whether they are a practised consultant or still in training. Obstetricians, neonatologists, midwives, nurses, and anaesthetic assistants in obstetric analgesia and anaesthesia who wish to extend or update their knowledge will also benefit from reading this book.


'… I can honestly say that this book is a welcome addition to my list of reference texts. I found it interesting, informative, relevant and clear. A great 'go to book' for an overview of a selected topic within the field of obstetric anaesthesia with a comprehensible flow, that makes some other text books seem as cumbersome as they really can be.'

‘Analgesia, Anaesthesia and Pregnancy is an enjoyable read, providing valuable information for advanced trainees and consultant anesthetists encountering complex obstetric patients in their practice. The book contains useful and practical information on core topics in obstetric anesthesia in a clear and concise format.’

‘This book briefly covers the most commonly encountered conditions and problems in obstetric anesthesia … The information is sufficient for its intended purpose and training physicians will appreciate the book during their obstetric anesthesia rotation. It is less detailed than most obstetric anesthesia books; its small size and ease of reading will render it useful for when on call. Given the updated reading material, the updated guidelines and recommendations, and the updated expansion of topics, this fourth edition is clearly justified and will be a welcome addition as a quick reference for those who practice obstetric anesthesia.’

‘… Analgesia, Anaesthesia and Pregnancy - A Practical Guide, Fourth Edition will provide anesthesia trainees (residents/fellows) and experienced obstetrical anesthesiologists relevant, practical advice on a wide range of topics in obstetrical anesthesia. I found it to be a most useful and informative read, and I highly recommend that this text be included in any anesthesia library accessed by those who provide obstetrical anesthesia care.’
