  • A Practical Approach to Obstetric Anesthesia

    A Practical Approach to Obstetric Anesthesia, 2e

    Brenda A. Bucklin, Curtis L. Baysinger, David Gambling

The focus of the second edition will remain very clinical but the clinical coverage will be broad-based and meant to appeal to all segments of the market--residents, clinicians, nurse-anesthetists, and even fellows in OB anesthesia, who can use a book like this as a quick refresher and anesthesia-cart reference.
