"Medical Care of the Pregnant Patient, Second Edition" provides primary care physicians with the practical knowledge needed to approach medically complicated pregnant patients. Each section in this easy-to-use guide contains specific drug tables and a table of key values indicating the normals for diagnostic tests that reflect the physiologic changes of pregnancy. A range of key topics are covered including: preparing for pregnancy, obstetric monitoring, hypertension, renal disease, cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases, rheumatic disorders, gastrointestinal and liver disease, cancer, nervous system disorders, infectious diseases, diseases of the skin, and postpartum disorders. This new edition is a result of a collaborative effort between editors and authors from different backgrounds, one that reflects the true interdisciplinary nature of obstetric medicine. Physicians managing medical illness in pregnant patients can be faced with additional difficulties. Motivated by a desire to serve both the pregnant woman and her unborn child, the physician may hesitate in treating the illness.
In its depth, diversity, and topicality, "Medical Care of the Pregnant Patient, Second Edition" is an unsurpassed resource for primary care physicians, providing them with a new understanding of medical illness in pregnancy.
