Handbook of Obstetric Medicine, Fifth Edition

by Catherine Nelson-Piercy

Medical professionals are often involved in the management of the pregnant patient without necessarily being experts on all the complications surrounding pregnancy. The Handbook of Obstetric Medicine addresses the most common and serious medical conditions encountered in pregnancy, including heart disease, thromboembolism, diabetes, skin problems, gastrointestinal disease, neurological problems, hormonal diseases, hypertension and pre-eclampsia, and more.

For each condition, the handbook includes a description of incidence, clinical features, pathogenesis, diagnosis, the effect of pregnancy, and management of the condition. The book also includes a detailed section focusing on the differential diagnosis of common symptoms including hypertension, chest pain, palpitations, breathlessness, headaches, dizziness, abdominal pain, and more.

The symptoms and differential diagnoses are presented in an easy-to-read tabular format and include a description of important clinical features and potential areas of investigation. For those clinicians understandably reluctant to prescribe drugs during pregnancy, a useful appendix includes a list of contraindicated drugs. In addition, to assist in the interpretation of laboratory tests, a second appendix lists normal laboratory values in pregnancy, broken down by trimester.

The handbook uses a pragmatic and easy-to-use design by including tables, bullets, and “Points to remember” boxes for ease of reference. It is an essential on-the-spot guide for obstetricians, physicians, general practitioners, and midwives in both practice and training.

Author: Goswamy Subhash

This book, Manual of Oculoplasty, Orbitopathies and Dacryology, deals with Oculoplasty, Orbitopathies and Dacryology. This manual is not intended to be a traditional textbook, but a practical way of looking at a problem, then devising a plan of management best suited for that situation and for that patient, innovatively, with our background of morphological, genetic, physiological and pathological knowledge and its variations, besides the personal experience and the solution best suited to appease the psyche of the patient. This Manual and its Atlas is for the postgraduates, especially interested in the super-specialty of ‘Ophthalmoplasty’ including oculoplasty, orbitopathies and dacryology. In the field of oculoplasty, there is not one procedure to suit the same diagnosis, because there are many variations of that level leading up to the varied deformities. Each case has to be assessed according to its merits and there is nothing better than your own experience—a holistic approach and a scientific attitude.
