Pregnancy affects every organ system, and many of these physiologic changes have implications during urgent and emergent events in the peripartum period, including initial unstable conditions to full resuscitation. Many of these topics are covered in depth in the following obstetric anesthesia chapters. This chapter briefly introduces the major physiologic changes that occur during pregnancy and proposes a general approach to an unstable parturient. A structured approach to the assessment and initial management and resuscitation of the unstable parturient is key to successful outcomes.
