Obstetric

Clinical Care

We are committed to providing round-the-clock coverage of the labor and delivery floor. We also offer consultative services and management for high-risk obstetric patients.

Residency Training

Residents spend two months in their CA-1 and CA-2 years becoming proficient in providing care for the routine patient. In the CA-3 year, residents spend at least two months learning obstetric anesthesia for the high-risk patient. Residents participate in daily high-risk rounds and consultations.  In-depth half day orientation to obstetric anesthesia is provided at the start of each rotation, and frequently didactic sessions are offered throughout the month.

Clinical Interest

Regional blockade for post-operative analgesia, the use of ultrasound for regional block and epidural placement are some of the clinical interests/pursuits of our faculty.

Research

Non-invasive assessment of volume status and of uterine blood flow; management of "wet taps"; labor analgesia; post cesarean analgesia are the main research interest in the Section.
