Analgesia, Anaesthesia and Pregnancy : A Practical Guide
Analgesia, Anaesthesia and Pregnancy focuses on pre-empting problems and maximising quality of care. Every chapter of this well-established practical guide has been completely updated and revised. All aspects of obstetric medicine relevant to the anaesthetist are covered, from pre-pregnancy management to conception, throughout pregnancy, to postnatal care. The authors have identified over 150 potential complications, each covered in two parts: 'problems/special considerations' and 'management options', with key points prominently displayed 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 practical summary will be invaluable to any anaesthetist encountering obstetric patients, whether they are a practiced consultant or still in training. It will also be useful for obstetricians, neonatologists, midwives, nurses and operating department practitioners wishing to extend or update their knowledge.

Review of previous edition: 'This is a book that openly professes to be a 'short practical text' and it has achieved its objective very successfully indeed. Clearly set out with discreet well-organized chapters, the text is easy to read and presents a comprehensive overview of a difficult field in a 'user-friendly' form.' European Journal of Anaesthesiology Review of previous edition: 'The authors have succeeded in producing an excellent book in a style that sets it apart from, and possibly above, recent similar publications ... The book achieves its aim of targeting anaesthetists in training at all levels, and would provide a useful handbook for both the experienced and the occasional consultant obstetric anaesthetist.' International Journal of Obstetric Anesthesia Review of previous edition: 'This book will be of value to anaesthetic trainees and more senior obstetric anaesthetists as it covers both the fundamentals of routine obstetric anaesthesia and the more complex problems encountered less frequently.' Postgraduate Medical Journal Review of previous edition: 'The diversity of topics and their limited analysis makes it easy to read the text quickly and to pick up key points. At the end of each topic is a bullet point synopsis ... It is these characteristics of the book that create the practical approach ... The book is certain to be popular given its broad authorship and succinct style.' British Journal of Anaesthesia '... well written ... a concise, accurate and up-to-date textbook that covers the vast majority of problems an anaesthetist [is] likely to encounter on the labour ward. It would be an invaluable revision aid for those studying for the Fellowship of the Royal College of Anaesthetists.' C. Meer and I. J. Wrench, British Journal of Anaesthesia 'Whether acquired as a printed volume or as an eBook, this updated, refreshed, and focused text is a valuable resource.' Canadian Journal of Anesthesia 'In summary, this book is a user-friendly practical guide.' Anaesthesia 'A concise, accurate and up-to-date textbook that covers the vast majority of problems an anaesthetist is likely to encounter on the labour ward.' British Journal of Anaesthesia
