Beginning Obstetric Anesthesiology
Today marks my first true day of my two month obstetric anesthesia rotation, and what a way to kick it off – weekend call! I’ll have roughly 60 days to master the art of neuraxial anesthetics (epidurals, spinals, and combined spinal-epidurals), maternal and fetal physiology, obstetric emergencies, medications (methergine, hemabate, pitocin, etc) and all the unique considerations for pregnant/laboring patients.
Time to caffeinate before heading in to work! 😀
