About the Authors
  • Core Cases in Obstetric Anaesthesia describes the clinical management of some of the most common problems seen in the obstetric patient. Detailed, illustrative case histories are presented and for each, descriptions of the problem, its underlying pathophysiology and the key principles of patient management are given. Each 'case' is written by an expert in the field, and all of the contributors are practising anaesthetists of many years' experience. Core Cases in Obstetric Anaesthesia is essential reading for all trainees in anaesthesia, and will also prove a valuable addition to the libraries of other groups such as obstetricians, midwives, theatre nurses, and all delivery suite personnel, both as a useful summary of key topics in obstetric anaesthesia in an easily-digested format, and as a stimulus for discussion and analysis of current practice.

    • Presents key concepts in a new way for the reader
    • Focuses on key topics that WILL be encountered in day-to-day practice
    • Written by practising anaesthetists with many years of experience, but aimed at a broad readership to reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the subject
    • Valuable for trainees and practising anaesthetists alike as a means of assessing their own practice
    • Useful for trainers as a platform for discussion of key aspects of patient care
