Annually, the Society for Obstetric Anaesthesia and Perinatology recognises Gerard W Ostheimer, a former obstetric anaesthesiologist at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, by presenting an honorary lecture that highlights topics relevant to obstetric anaesthesia from the obstetrics and anaesthesia literature published the previous year. What follows is a brief discussion of the topics discussed in the 2011 lecture, namely maternal coexisting disease, complications of anaesthesia, the safe administration of oxytocin, and patient safety.
