Abstract

The drug-abusing parturient presents many challenges to the anesthesiologist. Substance abuse in pregnancy has emerged as a major public health problem of the 1990s. Because of this, obstetricians, pediatricians, and anesthesiologists are now encountering an increasing number of pregnant patients who use illicit substances, in particular, cocaine abuse. This article discusses the effects of cocaine, amphetamine, narcotic, alcohol, and cigarette abuse in the parturient.
