Emergencies in Obstetrics and Gynaecology 2nd Edition ebook
The second edition of Emergencies in Obstetrics and Gynaecology provides a practical and accessible guide to all emergency situations encountered in obstetrics and gynecology, from the immediately life-threatening to the smaller but urgent problems that may arise.
Designed around the symptoms and signs with which the patient presents to the hospital, this handbook explains how to arrive at a differential diagnosis and how to prevent, manage, or treat an emergency. The ‘Obstetric emergencies’ section covers topics from early pregnancy through to post-delivery complications, whilst the ‘Gynecologic emergencies’ section addresses those issues that could potentially pose a threat to a women’s fertility or even her life.
Addressing new topics on issues that have become more prevalent, such as substance misuse in pregnancy, and violence against women and children, the second edition of Emergencies in Obstetrics and Gynaecology is an essential read. A new topic on ‘preoperative assessment’ outlines how to manage consent, the risks, benefits, and what the patient should expect.
