In many countries there has been an increase in the number of women who deliver by caesarean section. This article reviews anaesthetic management of non-scheduled caesarean section. The choice of anaesthetic technique (regional anaesthesia versus general anaesthesia) is discussed and highlighted particularly from the viewpoint of urgency of operative delivery. A multidisciplinary approach is mandatory especially in emergency cases to prevent morbidity and mortality in mothers and neonates.
