The obstetric anaesthetist is requested to deal with a variety of problems on a busy delivery suite each day

An understanding of the common obstetric problems is essential to safely provide the appropriate anaesthetic management

Teamwork and prompt, effective communication between anaesthetists, anaesthetic practitioners, midwives, and obstetricians are vital in each situation

It is important for all professionals involved to understand their own role and the factors affecting the decision-making of other disciplines.
