Handbook of Obstetric and Gynecologic Emergencies
Revised and updated for its Fourth Edition, this practical, portable, and affordable handbook is designed for rapid reference in the office or emergency room. It focuses on diagnosis and treatment of common emergencies in female patients and features numerous treatment algorithms, bulleted lists, and tables, plus ample illustrations including ultrasound. Coverage addresses all emergent conditions and non-emergent problems, such as sexually transmitted diseases, that frequently present in emergency departments. This edition has been updated to address current challenges such as complications arising from medical and surgical abortion, medical and psychological problems arising from sexual assault and other gynecologic traumas, and emergent conditions due to chemical-biological warfare.
