This guide will give you information to help you choose what pain relief options are right for you as you get ready for the birth of your baby. Every delivery is different, and not all women will want or need all of the options we describe. If you have any questions, please talk with your primary health care provider. If you plan to deliver vaginally, it is important to think about your plans for pain relief in labour. Even if you plan to deliver using non-medicated pain relief options, it is a…

Abstract
This guide will give you information to help you choose what pain relief options are right for you as you get ready for the birth of your baby. Every delivery is different, and not all women will want or need all of the options we describe. If you have any questions, please talk with your primary health care provider. If you plan to deliver vaginally, it is important to think about your plans for pain relief in labour. Even if you plan to deliver using non-medicated pain relief options, it is a good idea to have a backup plan just in case. Topics include: relaxation and breathing techniques, nitrous oxide gas, narcotic analgesics, and epidurals (an FAQ section on epidurals is provided).

This book represents a unique and substantial guide, and will bring anesthesiologists up-to-date on advances in the neuraxial technique and its applications in obstetrics. Today the epidural block is almost exclusively of interest to obstetric anesthesiologists, and how it is taught increasingly coincides with its applications in obstetrics.

Abstract
This book represents a unique and substantial guide, and will bring anesthesiologists up-to-date on advances in the neuraxial technique and its applications in obstetrics. Today the epidural block is almost exclusively of interest to obstetric anesthesiologists, and how it is taught increasingly coincides with its applications in obstetrics. Since the classical, seminal textbooks by Bonica, Moore and Bromage, published in the 1950s and 60s, textbooks devoted solely to the epidural technique have become quite rare. Among more recent books, there are many excellent texts on epidural anesthesia or analgesia in obstetrics, but none are fully dedicated to the epidural technique, which is usually described in a few paragraphs or, at most, in a chapter. This highly detailed book, including videoclip on epidural technique, offers comprehensive coverage on epidurals; as such, it will appeal to all anesthesiologists, especially obstetric anesthesiologists.
