Now in a fully updated Fifth Edition, Shnider and Levinson's Anesthesia for Obstetrics, continues to provide the comprehensive coverage that has made it the leading reference in the field. The rising number of Cesarean births and the more advanced age of first-time mothers in the United States have brought with them an increased risk for complications, making the role of the obstetric anesthesiologist increasingly important.

Inside you'll explore...

* Maternal and Fetal Physiology builds your understanding of placental transfer of drugs.

* Fetal Assessment covers the basics of antenatal assessment and intrapartum monitoring.

* Anesthesia and Analgesia addresses the anesthetic considerations of vaginal and Cesarean delivery.

* Neonatal Well-Being-including neonatal resuscitation and neonatal injury.

* Management of Obstetric Complications helps minimize the risks posed by abnormal positioning, intrapartum fever, and antepartum and postpartum hemorrhage.

* Management of Anesthetic Complications addresses the special problems related to obstetric anesthesia, including embolic events and intubation problems.

* Management of the Parturient with Coexisting Disorders prepares you for the special challenges faced when treating mothers with hypertensive, respiratory, endocrine, neurologic, or other disorders.

* Difficult and Failed Intubation: Strategies, Prevention, and Management of Airway-Related Catastrophes addresses the airway related maternal mortality, predictors of difficult airway and strategies to manage the unanticipated difficult airway as well as the critical airway with increasing hyoxemia.

"This book is in direct competition with Chestnut's Obstetric Anesthesia:Principles and Practice, 4th edition, Chestnut et al. (Elsevier, 2009), which is already somewhat dated in its print form (although it has an online component). This book is somewhat easier to read, as well as easier to navigate online. The search and print functions are user friendly, and help make this book the better choice for trainees. This fifth edition continues the tradition of excellence established in 1979."
