In this episode I have enlisted Dr Roger Browning (Obstetric Anaesthetist) to discuss the finer points of giving a safe anaesthetic in the scariest scenario in my practice – the crashing GA Caesarean section.
There are many ways to skin a cat and many ways to give a GA for a C-section. Roger takes me through a case and how he approaches this complex and urgent situation.
If you have questions or comments then please let me know in the comments below and I will ask roger to answer them – he is much smarter!
