Anesthesia and Analgesia addresses the anesthetic considerations of vaginal and Cesarean delivery. Neonatal Well-Being--including neonatal resuscitation and neonatal injury. Management of Obstetric Complications helps minimize the risks posed by abnormal positioning, intrapartum fever, and antepartum and postpartum hemorrhage.
