A high-risk pregnancy is one in which a woman and her foetus face a higher-than-normal chance of experiencing problems. These risks may be due to factors in the pregnancy itself, or they may stem from pre-existing maternal medical conditions.
This book is a comprehensive guide to the management of high risk pregnancies for postgraduate medical students.
It is an amalgamation of existing literature, current guidelines, and recent advances in medical technologies.
Divided into 22 chapters, the text covers pathophysiology, systematic investigations, diagnosis, and appropriate management for both maternal and foetal disorders, helping trainees identify conditions that can make a pregnancy high risk.
The book is highly illustrated with clinical images, diagrams and flowcharts, and features a question paper and extensive bibliography to assist learning.
