This monograph describes the technics and gives other pertinent data on saddle block anesthesia (low spinal anesthesia limited more or less to anatomic parts that would be in contact with rider's saddle) and conventional spinal anesthesia for normal and operative obstetric deliveries. The only drug recommended is dibucaine hydrochloride. There are 12 excellent plates in color drawn by Frank H. Netter, M.D. The monograph will interest anesthetists and obstetricians.
