Anesthetic considerations in pregnant women at advanced maternal age.

Anesthesia management of parturients aged 45 years and above is comparable to the management of women aged 40-44 years. However, parturients ≥45 are more susceptible to

Of note, parturients aged ≥45 years had an approximately eight-fold risk for postpartum hemorrhage.
