Clinical Maternal-Fetal Medicine Online, Second Edition
Informa Healthcare, December 2011, Pages: 1100
The new edition of this successful textbook is the comprehensive one-stop site to consult for any query relating to pregnancy and birth - a thorough and modern review of maternal-fetal medicine practice. The content includes diagnostic and therapeutic procedures used during pregnancy, such as ultrasound, chorionic villus sampling, amniocentesis, and fetal surgery. There is a major section on women with medical and surgical disorders, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, pre-eclampsia, diabetes, kidney or gastrointestinal disease, and infectious diseases. In addition, the book also covers the care of healthy women whose pregnancy is at markedly increased risk for adverse outcome from conditions such as multiple birth, recurrent pre-term labor and delivery, premature rupture of membranes, recurrent pregnancy loss, or fetal growth restriction. The basic sciences section have been enlarged to reflect how current understanding of maternal physiology and pathophysiology has resulted in more accurate diagnosis and more effective treatments of medical, surgical and obstetric maternal complications. More importantly, scientific advances have made the developing fetus in utero more accessible to evaluation, diagnosis and treatment.
The book will be essential reading for trainees in maternal-fetal medicine and for a wide range of other clinicians and allied health workers in obstetrics, gynecology and women’s health – all who have the privilege of caring for the unique symbiotic relationship between a mother and her fetus.
