Emergenze ed urgenze in ostetricia e ginecologia
Salvatore Felis, Maria Grazia Frigoe altri
editore: CIC Edizioni Internazionali
Ogni giorno ci ritroviamo a fronteggiare le patologie e le emergenze ostetriche accanto alle gravidanze fisiologiche. Tali condizioni possono verificarsi in gravidanza, durante o dopo il travaglio e il parto, sono potenzialmente letali per la madre e il bambino e non possono trovarci impreparati. La gestione delle emergenze è primariamente responsabilità degli Ostetrici-Ginecologi e l’integrazione di altre figure professionali quali Ostetriche, Anestesisti Rianimatori ed Esperti di Terapia Intensiva Ostetrica, Neonatologi, Medici Internisti e Generici e Paramedici, risulta essenziale.
Urgenze ed emergenze in sala parto
a cura di A. Ragusa, C. Crescini
La nuova edizione di Urgenze ed emergenze in sala parto di Ragusa e Crescini intende fornire al lettore un quadro generale sulle urgenze ed emergenze che possono verificarsi all'interno della sala parto. Il libro nasce come manuale del gruppo GEO (Gruppo Gestione Emergenze Ostetriche), un gruppo di professionisti, ostetrici, anestesisti-rianimatori e neonatologi che condividono alcuni principi basilari quali la trasmissione e la condivisione delle conoscenze, la collegialità delle decisioni e l’interscambiabilità della didattica. Il testo è ripartito in quattro grandi sezioni: la pianificazione e l’organizzazione del lavoro in sala parto; le urgenze e le emergenze materne; le urgenze e le emergenze materno-fetali; le urgenze e le emergenze fetali. L’obiettivo specifico del testo è quello di raccogliere in un unico testo le conoscenze sulle situazioni problematiche e difficili che possono verificarsi al termine della gravidanza e nella gestione quotidiana della sala parto, partendo anche dall’esperienza diretta degli autori. Per questo motivo, accanto alla spiegazione delle conoscenze di ostetricia e di ginecologia, viene dato ampio spazio agli esempi pratici, indispensabili per la comprensione e lo studio di questa tematica. Urgenze ed emergenze in sala parto, proprio per l’importanza della tematica e per i continui sviluppi in materia, vuole essere uno testo di veloce consultazione non solo per superare i momenti critici ma anche un volume capace di portare il lettore ad apprezzare la pratica ostetrica.
Emergencies in Obstetrics and Gynaecology
S. Arulkumaran, Stergios K Doumouchtsis
editore: Oxford University Press
The second edition of Emergencies in Obstetrics and Gynaecology provides a practical and accessible guide to all emergency situations encountered in obstetrics and gynaecology, from the immediately life-threatening to the smaller but urgent problems that may arise. Designed around the symptoms and signs with which the patient presents to the hospital, this handbook explains how to arrive at a differential diagnosis and how to prevent, manage, or treat an emergency. The 'Obstetric emergencies' section covers topics from early pregnancy through to post-delivery complications, whilst the 'Gynaecologic emergencies' section addresses those issues that could potentially pose a threat to a women's fertility or even her life. Addressing new topics on issues that have become more prevalent, such as substance misuse in pregnancy, and violence against women and children, the second edition of Emergencies in Obstetrics and Gynaecology is an essential read. A new topic on 'preoperative assessment' outlines how to manage consent, the risks, benefits, and what the patient should expect.
Maternal Critical Care
A Multidisciplinary Approach
Helen Scholefield, Lauren A. Plantee altri
editore: Cambridge University Press
If you are an obstetrician whose patient has been admitted to ICU, you need to know how she is managed there. If you are an intensivist, you need to adapt to changes in physiology, alter techniques for the pregnant patient and keep the fetus from harm. This book addresses the challenges of managing critically ill obstetric patients by providing a truly multidisciplinary perspective. Almost every chapter is co-authored by both an intensivist/anesthesiologist and an obstetrician/maternal-fetal medicine expert to ensure that the clinical guidance reflects best practice in both specialties. Topics range from the purely medical to the organizational and the sociocultural, and each chapter is enhanced with color images, tables and algorithms. Written and edited by leading experts in anesthesiology, critical care medicine, maternal-fetal medicine, and obstetrics and gynecology, this is an important resource for anyone who deals with critically ill pregnant or postpartum patients.

Pre-hospital Obstetric Emergency Training
Advanced Life Support Group
editore: Wiley-Blackwell (an imprint of John Wiley & Sons Ltd)
The Pre-hospital Obstetric Emergency Training (POET) programme provides an introduction to the obstetric patient and the anatomical and physiological changes that occur during pregnancy (including interpretation of patient-held records and rapid assessment of the obstetric patient). It includes clear definitions and describes risk factors, diagnosis and pre-hospital management of significant problems that occur in both early and late pregnancy and the immediate postnatal period. These are all situations that the pre-hospital practitioner may attend. This text and the accompanying integrated on-line and 'hands on' course will help practitioners identify and manage a range of time-critical obstetric emergencies specifically in the pre-hospital setting, and provides a structured examination and assessment technique as an aid to determining what treatment should be provided before transport, as well as when and how urgently transport should be initiated. POET is of relevance to paramedics, ambulance staff, doctors, and nurses working in the emergency pre-hospital setting and to midwives facilitating home births. It will also be of considerable value to medical and nursing practitioners working in Emergency Departments and unscheduled care settings where immediate access to skilled obstetric assistance is not available.
