In a recent issue of Anesthesiology, Jennifer Hofer, MD, and Barbara Scavone, MD, of the University of Chicago Medical Center, have published a glowing review regarding Dr. Ian McConachie's new textbook, Controversies in Obstetric Anesthesia and Analgesia. This 2013 text features the works of many of our department faculty members, including:
In their review, Hofer and Scavone note that "Controversies in Obstetric Anesthesia and Analgesia is planned perfectly for its target audience. It is a teaching text for trainees and a quick refresher for experienced practitioners. In the Preface, a concise synopsis of the goals are identified, which are consistently met in each chapter" (Hofer 762).
The authors conclude that this text "has a permanent home in [their] hospital’s obstetric anesthesia workroom, accessible both to residents and attendings....and is a welcome addition to [the] practice" (Hoffer 762).
