Editorial: Cesarean delivery (Part 2): Managing the logjam


Last month, I reviewed the factors that have driven the dramatic increase in cesarean delivery (CD) rates over the past several years. This month, I'll review the potential impact of this trend on a "typical" obstetric service. While both staff and physical capacity will be taxed by increased CD rates, I believe that patient safety may also be threatened as a result of the incremental demand on limited obstetrical operating room (OR) availability. I offer several strategies to manage the coming chaos.
