Anesthesia and Analgesia for Assisted Reproduction Techniques and other Procedures during the First Trimester

Arvind Palanisamy, Lawrence C. Tsen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

From the earliest division of cells involved with reproduction and development of the early fetus, the fragility of life is apparent. At this stage, the cells are sensitive to subtle changes in internal and external environments. As a consequence, the anesthetic and analgesic exposure and management of women undergoing surgery for assisted reproduction and during the first trimester are of particular importance.
