Management Acute of Obstetric Emergencies, by Baha M. Sibai, MD, is the ideal way to enhance your skills in this key area of obstetrics. In this volume in the Female Pelvic Surgery Video Atlas Series, edited by Mickey Karram, MD, detailed discussions and illustrations, case studies, and video footage clarify how to most effectively anticipate and perform a variety of emergency procedures and manage complications. Supplemental video presentations take you step by step through high-risk obstetrical emergencies including evaluation and management of hemorrhaging (antepartum, intrapartum, and postpartum), managing maternal cardiac arrest, and more.
Case-based presentations and videos, narrated by the authors, take you step by step through a variety of procedures including CPR in pregnancy, techniques for abdominal cerclage, Cesarean hysterectomy, and management of postpartum hemorrhage.
Highly illustrated, quick-reference chapters discuss all of the possible diagnoses for which each procedure is indicated.
Case studies describe the clinical history surrounding each case featured in the videos.
"This is a nice overview of complications related to obstetrics, ranging from the common (lower urinary tract injuries) to the rare (amniotic fluid embolism)." - Anthony Shanks, MD(Washington University School of Medicine), Excerpts from Doody’s review service.
"The book itself is advertised as one that illustrates the management of acute obstetric emergencies, including of course pre-eclampsia, haemorrhage and maternal cardiac arrest...There are plenty of good illustrations and extensive case histories...In some instances these are extremely detailed and in one case runs to four pages."
