Abstract

Abstract Ultrasound has permeated the practice of anesthesiology and is becoming an essential tool for the obstetric anesthesiologist in the labor and delivery suite. The most common applications include guidance for neuraxial (epidural and spinal) anesthesia and acute pain nerve blocks, as well as guidance for central and peripheral vascular access. Obstetric anesthesiologists are becoming increasingly familiar with diagnostic applications, including transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and lung and gastric ultrasound. There is intense interest in developing standard curricula for achieving competency in ultrasound skills during residency training and expanding the role of ultrasound in education and research.
