Core Topics in Obstetric Anaesthesia 1st Edition
This new addition to the highly successful Core Topics in Anaesthesia series provides a clinically relevant text for both trainees and consultants, covering the entire sub-specialty of obstetric anaesthesia. In-depth coverage of pregnancy-related physiology and pharmacology makes this book an excellent revision tool for basic science examinations. It is also a trouble-shooting guide for anaesthetists when managing parturients suffering with concurrent medical conditions including obesity, sepsis, hypertensive, renal, respiratory, neurological, haematological and endocrine diseases. Chapters provide recommended management plans for specific conditions such as HIV and neuropraxia following regional anesthesia, and include algorithms to guide clinical decision-making. Guidance on the required infrastructure for setting up services such as antenatal clinics is also included. Experts in their fields have contributed sections including allergy testing and immunology, the immunocompromised parturient, and maternal collapse. This practical resource will serve as a survival guide for all those caring for parturients on the delivery suite.
This latest title in the highly successful Core Topics in Anaesthesia series will be invaluable for trainees, as an introduction to obstetric anaesthesia and as a revision aid, and also for senior staff as a reference for trouble-shooting on the delivery suite.
