This edition of Obstetric Anesthesia and Uncommon Disorders provides a convenient resource for practitioners suddenly faced with a parturient who has an unusual medical or surgical condition. The book considers the impact of a condition on pregnancy, labor and delivery, or the fetus and the impact of pregnancy on a condition, or the effect of therapy for the disorder on the fetus or neonate. Case reports and experience from the world literature, and clinical advice from many specialists, are drawn together by an international team of editors and contributors who are leading experts in the field. Clear, concise management guidelines and algorithms are provided, and each chapter is written from the viewpoint of the obstetric anesthesiologist. Thoroughly revised, with chapters on chronic pain in pregnancy and malignancy and pregnancy, this book will be an invaluable resource for any anesthesiologist involved in the clinical management of these complex patients.

Review of the first edition: ' ... very well written and comprehensive ... and an excellent value-for-money textbook for all anesthesiologists interested in obstetric anesthesia.' Anesthesiology
Review of the first edition: '... any practitioner of obstetric anesthesia will find occasion to refer to this useful and practical book.' International Journal of Obstetric Anesthesia
Review of the first edition: '... covering conditions as diverse as cystic fibrosis, acute severe asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, and transplants ... it is a must for every delivery suite.' British Journal of Anaesthesia
Review of the second edition: '... this book is remarkably inexpensive for such a rich treasure trove of invaluable information. A bible for obstetric anaesthetic pre-assessment clinics, this is an invaluable reference source for every anaesthetist responsible for emergency care, whether on the shop floor of an obstetric unit or on-call from home covering general emergencies ...' International Journal of Obstetric Anesthesia
Review of the hardback: 'There are an increasing number of patients who, through modern medicine and techniques, are reaching reproductive years, notably those who have undergone cardiac surgery in childhood for congenital heart disease. This second edition covers the important anaesthetic implications of the most common abnormalities, whilst acknowledging that advice is based on case reports and expert opinion in the absence of extensive randomised case controlled studies. It is important that we in the delivery suite and high risk pre-assessment clinic have up to date, easily accessible and understandable information surrounding these conditions and their potential problems. This second edition fulfils this role and should be available in every obstetric unit.' Anaesthesia
