Medical Problems in Pregnancy
This is a major new textbook on medical disorders and medical complications in pregnancy, which provides an authoritative and practical guide to the management of these potentially life-threatening conditions. Written in a consistent, accessible style, the book discusses each medical problem at all stages - from pre-pregnancy through the post-partum period - and provides a stage-by-stage management plan for each condition. Organized by systems, each chapter begins with a review of important background information on the physiology and pathology of the system as it relates to pregnancy and then moves on to consider individual medical problems, such as hypertension, cariomyopathies, etc. The book's scope also includes the management of the acutely ill patient, pre-pregnancy counselling, anaesthesia, effects on the neonate, and the long-term implications of medical complications.
