Successful management of anaphylaxis relies upon rapid recognition and supportive treatment

Awareness is common during general anesthesia (GA) for caesarean section and it is essential that there is adequate depth of anaesthesia throughout surgery

Pregnant women are at risk of gastric aspiration during GA but can be minimized by greater use of regional anaesthesia

All women for GA should have their airways assessed for potential difficult intubation

The anaesthetic practitioner should have a well practiced algorithm for managing a difficult/failed intubation.
