Obstetrical hemorrhage accounts for about 16% of all maternal deaths. The most common cause of hemorrhage is uterine atony. General anesthesia is considered a predisposing cause of uterine atony. This article briefly reviews the hemodynamic changes occurring during pregnancy and uterine atony. Aspects of predisposing factors and management related to the use of drugs and halogenated anesthetics are discussed.
