Obstetric anesthesia has become a widely evidence-based practice, with an increasing number of specialized anesthesiologists and a permanent research production. We believe that with the review of commonly discussed and controversial points the reader will be able to incorporate an evidence-based practice into their routine and offer to parturients and their babies a safe, reliable and consistent anesthesia care.
