Title: Practical considerations on obstetric anesthesia.

Abstract: Faure begins the work with short historical account of James Young Simpson’s first application of obstetric anesthesia, and of other notable events, mostly French. The physiology of obstetric anesthesia, its influence on the health of the mother and the child, and indications and contraindications of obstetric anesthesia are discussed. The author concludes that anesthesia can decrease labor pain without significantly interfering with uterine contractions, but must be used prudently. He also suggests a few guidelines for the administration of obstetric anesthesia.
