Handbook of Obstetric Medicine, Third Edition is divided into two main sections. The major part of the text deals with the most common and serious medical conditions encountered in pregnancy, with a chapter for each system including heart disease, hypertension, thromboembolism, diabetes, skin problems, gastrointestinal disease and so on. The clear format with tables, bullet points and boxes of key points has been retained from the second edition. All chapters have been substantially updated and the second section is in tabular format and concentrates on the differential diagnosis of common symptoms, signs and biochemical abnormalities encountered in pregnancy.
This third edition of the Handbook of Obstetric Medicine provides a didactic approach to management and will be an essential on-the-spot guide for health care professionals caring for pregnant women with medical problems, including obstetricians, physicians, family practitioners, and midwives in both practice and training.
