Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Eveline Faure, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This book discusses problems in obstetrical anesthesia. It is divided into four sections. The last section, entitled "Miscellaneous" contains one of the most important problems: preeclampsia. The problems are discussed in a simplified and generalized fashion.
Purpose: The book is intended for anesthesia residents and anesthesiologists to refresh their knowledge. Its oversimplification makes it an unattractive teaching tool. The basic physiology of pregnancy is placed as an appendix in the end.
Audience: It seems to be more suited to medical students for fast fact finding, without in-depth explanation.
Features: The illustrations are of insufficient quantity but are clearly outlined. The greatest disadvantage of the book is its lack of references. The index seems to be complete. The book's small format enables it to fit into coat pockets.
Assessment: This small pocketbook contains a collection of problems in obstetrical anesthesia that might be of help to the medical student but not to residents in anesthesia or the advanced anesthesiologist.
