Now in a fully updated Fifth Edition, Shnider and Levinson's Anesthesia for
Obstetrics, continues to provide the comprehensive coverage that has made it
the leading reference in the field. The rising number of Cesarean births and
the more advanced age of first-time mothers in the United States have brought
with them an increased risk for complications, making the role of the obstetric
anesthesiologist increasingly important.
