The conversation begins with some thoughts on Enhanced Recovery (ER) for the obstetric patient. Further discussion covers the “transatlantic” differences between the US, UK and the wider EU. Where does pain management fit into the ceasarian section (c-section) debate? What are the advantages of a drug diversion programme in that respect? The issue of fluid management in the operating room is discussed. What is Evidence Based Obstetric Anaesthesia?
