What are some of the unique recommendations for anesthetizing the parturient taking LMWH?
Neuraxial anesthesia can be safely administered to the patient receiving LMWH if certain guidelines and precautions are met. The American Society of Regional Anesthesia (ASRA) convened a consensus conference on neuraxial anes-thesia in association with anticoagulation on May 2–3, 1998.
A team of clinicians devised recommendations regarding the administration of neuraxial anesthesia to the patient receiving anticoagulation therapy. These are summarized in Table 63.1.
