ABSTRACT
Anesthesia practitioners are often required to manage obstetric patients diagnosed with preeclampsia. Practitioners must be acutely aware of the hemodynamic and physical changes associated with this condition and prepared for the potential development of eclampsia. This case report examines a parturient presenting with severe preeclampsia that rapidly progressed to eclampsia. Seizure activity refractory to treatment resulted, requiring an emergent cesarean section due to maternal and fetal compromise.

    The anaesthetic management in the peripartum period of a pre-eclamptic patient is important. The anesthesiologist must perform a detailed preanesthetic assessment, including a history and physical examination. The morbidity and mortality rates are higher in severe preeclamsia. Magnesium sulfate...

Even more so than other disciplines, obstetric anesthesia is therefore in the true sense of the word dependent on the close coordination of all concerned and a good interdisciplinary cooperation. Aim:...

    The number of caesarean sections has increased over the last two decades, especially in the developed countries. Hence, it has increasingly become a greater challenge to provide care for the parturient, but this has given obstetric anaesthetists a greater opportunity to contribute to obstetric...
