Cystic fibrosis and asthma are the two common and challenging respiratory diseases encountered on the delivery suite and these are described in detail in this chapter. Seasonal and pandemic viral influenzas and acute pneumonias are not uncommon either However, there are several other respiratory conditions which arise as part of other diseases, for example, cardiac or neuromuscular disorders and they are dealt with in the relevant chapters. A multidisciplinary approach to the care of women with respiratory disease, including that of the intensive care, is essential for good outcome and anaesthetists are often called upon to lead in this care.
