About this book

For nearly two decades, anesthesiologists and obstetricians have turned to this handbook as the definitive reference for obstetric anesthesia. Authoritative yet concise, it has been designed as a practical guide to all aspects of anesthesia for childbirth and related obstetric procedures, including perinatal pharmacology, relief of labor pain, fetal monitoring, anesthesia for cesarean delivery, high risk pregnancy, and in vitro fertilization.

The fifth edition of Obstetric Anesthesia Handbook has been reorganized and revised to both update the content and help expedite the retrieval of the most pertinent information. New chapters include "Pain of Labor and Delivery" and "Effects of Epidural Analgesia on Labor and the Infant." An appendix has been added that includes the most recent national guidelines for obstetric anesthesia. With numerous illustrations and tables, as well as updates regarding new medications and techniques, this esteemed handbook is more valuable than ever.

Reviews

From the reviews of the fourth edition:

"Fundamental principles, and most of the new considerations in obstetrical anesthesia are considered in this handbook, and every chapter provides a comprehensive bibliography. Single authorship provides a distinct advantage of avoiding duplication of information. … The Obstetric Anesthesia Handbook; Fourth Edition, is well updated and provides expert opinion on many clinical aspects of anesthesia for obstetrics which will be very useful for residents in anesthesiology and anesthesiologists involved in obstetrics … ." (Martine Pirlet, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, Vol. 54 (5), May, 2007)

From the reviews of the fifth edition:

“This concise handbook of obstetric anesthesia covers a broad range of topics … . It is intended primarily for practicing anesthesiologists and anesthesia residents. … information is presented in such an easy and simple way that medical students and other physicians … can use this book for self education and better management of their patients. … one stands out as the most up to date … wealth of information in this area and providing a handbook of manageable size that is easy to read.” (Tariq M. Malik, Doody’s Review Service, May, 2010)

“Mostly up-to-date references for readers who want to find more detailed information. Because of its practical approach to obstetric anaesthesia, this handbook has gained a reputation around the world as being a valuable resource for trainees and consultants … . this is a book that serves a great purpose. It is an up-to-date, practical and detailed yet concise resource for any practitioner involved in the care of women in childbirth, and would be a useful addition to the array of texts available.” (P. McAleer, Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, Vol. 39 (1), January, 2011)

“This handbook, which features a well-organized overview of the clinical issues of obstetric anesthesia, has been popular as a source of ready information in the case room and as a valuable student reference for examination preparation. … a current bibliography for further reading, and clinical context is also provided. … should be recommended as an introductory reference text for medical students and residents in Anesthesia programs, and as a reference for the anesthesiologist required to provide obstetrical anesthesia care and neonatal resuscitation in daily practice.”­­­ (Jean Kronberg, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, Vol. 57, 2010)
