Managing Medical and Obstetric Emergencies and Trauma provides an evidence-based, structured approach to the recognition and treatment of emergencies in pregnancy. This contemporary resource provides step-by-step guidance on the knowledge, practical skills and procedures required to improve outcomes for the mother and fetus.
Now in its fourth edition, the text fully aligns with the mMOET course, and has been extensively reviewed and revised throughout. Lessons learned from mortality reports and national guidelines underpin the new material. This edition includes:
• New chapters on cardiac disease, neurological emergencies and human factors
• An update for obstetric teams treating pregnant trauma patients in line with modern trauma management
• Revised algorithms and new illustrations
Managing Medical and Obstetric Emergencies and Trauma is a vital source of practical information presented as a systematic approach to prepare the obstetric team: obstetricians, midwives, anaesthetists and emergency physicians.
