BACKGROUND Simulation training is rapidly becoming an integral element of the education curriculum of anaesthesia residency programs. We report a case of successful management of a patient undergoing caesarean section under general anaesthesia. We conducted an obstetric anaesthesia workshop where in we created a similar scenario. Learning objectives were proper assessment of the patient, planning the anaesthesia, aspiration prophylaxis, proper pre-oxygenation, airway assessment and management strategy, cricoid pressure, adequate analgesia following baby delivery and administration of uterotonics and vasopressor along with fluid resuscitation. Neonatal resuscitation was also enacted during the workshop.
