095 General anaesthesia for C Section part 1

Welcome to this podcast, the sixth in our series of obstetric anaesthesia basics. Join us for this the first part of a conversation where we discuss all things relating to general anaesthesia for Caesarean section. Due to it’s length we have split this discussion into two parts – who would have thought we could talk for so long about this! (I thought it would only be one episode and was surprised what we teased out).

Thanks Laura, Matt & Roger!
