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.

The management of the pregnant woman with a medical problem presents the clinician with particular problems. An understanding of how a medical disease affects pregnancy and how any pre-existing medical condition is affected by pregnancy is required. In addition the clinician must take into account the second patient - the fetus - and be aware of how drug therapy and management strategies may influence fetal well-being. With tables, bullet points and boxes of key points, this text deals with the most common and serious medical conditions encountered in pregnancy, with a chapter for each system including heart disease, hypertension, thromboembolism, diabetes, skin problems, and gastrointestinal disease. With substantially updated chapters, this text is mainly in handy note form and concentrates on the differential diagnosis of common symptoms, signs and biochemical abnormalities encountered in pregnancy.
