Published Reviews

    "It is a book that might be useful to anaesthetic consultants with an interest in obstetric anaesthesia, perhaps when faced with one of those rare and complex clinical problems that sometimes crop up unexpectedly. Certainly, higher trainees with an interest in the sub-speciality would find immense value in its detailed and thorough coverage. It would also function well as an oracle of knowledge for people of any background searching for answers in this field". By British Journal of Anaesthesia, May 2015

    “Chestnut and his 79 expert contributors have once again released a current guide to obstetric anesthesia that proves useful to both junior learners and subspecialty providers.” By Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, Apr 2015

    "Exceedingly well-written, well-organized, and well-illustrated textbook, that provides an all-encompassing description and analysis of the core concepts of the subspecialty of Obstetrical Anesthesiology. It is quite remarkable that such a comprehensive and encyclopedic textbook is such a pleasure to read and study…it is a truly outstanding textbook." Kenneth L. Rodino, M.D.
