About this book


This protocol-based book uses algorithms to discuss preconception care, care during pregnancy, labor and delivery, and the link between postpartum and ongoing primary care. The need for an educated provider community to care for pregnant patients is enormous, and Medical Management of the Pregnant Patient provides a practical handbook that addresses all aspects of this topic. A brief overview of physiology, its impact on pregnancy and diagnostics, and treatment recommendations are included. Each section covers both diseases that may exist independent of pregnancy and diseases unique to pregnancy. Additionally, symptom-based complaints are incorporated into each section and cross-referenced appropriately. Internal medicine physicians, obstetricians, family practitioners and gynecologists alike will benefit from the practical clinical guidelines presented in this book.
