074 – Induction drugs used in general anaesthesia for caesarean delivery

Hi everyone,

This week I am joined by Matt & Graeme to discuss induction drugs and adjuncts used in general anaesthesia for caesarean delivery, with a few obligatory dad jokes thrown in at the end if you make it that far!

Hypothetical cases we discuss:

1 – Healthy woman rushed to theatre with cord prolapse and fetal compromise

2 – A woman with severe preeclampsia needs urgent caesarean delivery because of fetal compromise. She has a platelet count of 18, and a BP of 210/120.

3 – A woman ruptures her uterus attempting a VBAC and arrives in theatre with a heart rate of 170/min and BP of 60/40
