Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jeffrey L. Apfelbaum, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: With this fourth edition, the authors provide a comprehensive overview of virtually every aspect of obstetric anesthesiology, including a review of the physiologic and anatomic maternal changes of pregnancy, a new updated review of preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative management of the patient in labor, and a comprehensive review of both anesthetic and obstetric complications peridelivery.
Purpose: The goals are to: collate the most important information that anesthesia providers should know about obstetrics; prepare a thorough and user-friendly review of anesthesia care for obstetric patients; and focus on the fact that the anesthesia provider and the obstetrician provide simultaneous care for two (or more) patients - both the mother and her unborn child(ren).
Audience: This is one of the most complete and comprehensive foundations for trainees in obstetric anesthesiology. It is designed as a user-friendly resource for both experienced and occasional practitioners of obstetric anesthesiology.
Features: Of special significance in this update is the addition of three outstanding and internationally respected editors. Of the 76 contributors, 32 are new to this edition. Their collective background and expertise make them extraordinarily well qualified to serve as authorities in this subspecialty area of anesthesiology. The book covers maternal and fetal physiology, fetal and neonatal assessment and therapy, fundamental/foundations in obstetric anesthesia, anesthesia before and after delivery, and complications, both of relevance to anesthesiology and obstetrics. Specific sections are devoted to labor and vaginal delivery, caesarean delivery, and the parturient with systemic disease.
Assessment: All chapters in this edition have been updated and most have undergone extensive revision. There are several new chapters, including ones on patient safety and maternal mortality. With all these updates and changes, the fourth edition is fully justified as a replacement for the previous edition. This edition also incorporates a dedicated website that includes the entire contents of the book, which are fully searchable. Without question, this will be a valuable addition to the library of any practitioner of obstetrical anesthesia.

From the Publisher
“Obstetric Anesthesia: Principles and Practice remains loyal to its original objectives, presenting a detailed and pertinent examination of the obstetric patient for the student of anesthesia…Chestnut and his contributors transform ambiguous and occasionally contradictory conclusions found in scholarly papers into timely, readable discussions…An undeniable resource for the student of anesthesia, Obstetric Anesthesia: Principles and Practice warrants consideration from both specialties.”
-Anesth. Analg., review of the previous edition
Long K. Han
This is a superb new text on obstetric anesthesia. It is a complete reference for both novice and experienced practitioners. The book meets all of its objectives by providing a comprehensive review of the topic. The editor targets an audience that includes anesthesiology and obstetric residents, current practitioners, and some specialists within these fields. Dr. Chestnut is a widely published and acknowledged authority on obstetrical anesthesia. Many of the contributors are also well known in the field. Each chapter has many clear and concise tables, illustrations, and graphs that serve to amplify, as well as distill, relevant points in the chapter. Occasionally, protocols dealing with anesthetic management of important issues are all presented in highlighted boxes for quick reference. A unique feature of this book is the inclusion of a summary of key points at the end of each chapter. References are very current and pertinent. The table of contents and index are clear and complete. This is a superb new reference on obstetric anesthesia. The book has many relevant chapters on current topics such as HIV and substance abuse in this patient population. The comprehensive content and the excellent organization of each chapter qualify this text as an excellent reference for all practitioners in the field. I highly recommend it for inclusion in any library.

    Review: Chestnut Obstetrics

    This is an excellent resource for anyone studying for the obstetrical questions on either the US or Cdn board exams for anesthesia. Obstetrics can be a difficult topic but this book does an excellent job giving all the details but without losing the overall concepts. It is well written, has a very user-friendly page layout, there are lots of detailed diagrams, and the references are very thorough. This is also a good buy for anyone with a specific interest in obstetrical anesthesia. Useful for readers at all levels -- beginners and professionals. The best part is that Barnes and Nobles prices far outcompete any other seller that I have seen.
