The practice of Obstetric Anaesthesia everywhere is an emergency service.
Fernandez Hospital, in 1997, was the first to introduce a 24-hour Anaesthesia Service in an Obstetrics and Gynaecology Unit in the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad.
A tie-up with Prerna Anaesthesia and Critical Care Services is the backbone of the dedicated Intensive Care Unit. The availability of the anaesthesiologists, and co-ordination with other specialists,facilitates early attention and timely intervention.
With the introduction of Epidural Services, the safety of Obstetric Anaesthesia has vastly improved. Today, 34% of the total deliveries at Fernandez Hospital are conducted pain-free under epidural analgesia.
