Chesley's Hypertensive Disorders in Pregnancy

F.Gary Cunningham, James M. Roberts
e altri

editore: Academic Press Inc

pagine: 450

Hypertensive disorders remain one the major causes of maternal and fetal morbidity and death. It is also a leading cause of preterm birth now known to be a risk factor in remote cardiovascular disease. Despite this, the hypertensive disorders remain marginally studied, and their management is commonly controversial. Chesley's Hypertensive Disorders in Pregnancy remains one of the beacons to guide this field, recognized for its uniqueness and utility. The Third Edition continues this tradition, focusing on prediction, prevention, and management for clinicians, and is an essential reference text for clinical and basic investigators alike. Differing from other texts devoted to preeclampsia, it covers the whole gamut of high blood pressure, not just preeclampsia. NEW TO THE THIRD EDITION:*

Management of Unintended and Abnormal Pregnancy

Comprehensive Abortion Care

David A. Grimes, Lynn Borgatta
e altri

editore: Wiley-Blackwell (an imprint of John Wiley & Sons Ltd)

pagine: 392

Access to high quality abortion care is essential to women's health, as evidenced by the dramatic decrease in pregnancy-related morbidity and mortality since the legalization of abortion in the United States, and by high rates of maternal death and complications in those countries where abortion is still provided under unsafe conditions. The past two decades have brought important advances in abortion care as well as increasing cross-disciplinary use of abortion technologies in women's health care. Abortion is an important option for pregnant women who have serious medical conditions or fetal abnormalities, and fetal reduction techniques are now well-integrated into infertility treatment to reduce the risks of multiple pregnancies resulting from assisted reproductive technologies. Management of Unintended and Abnormal Pregnancy: Comprehensive Abortion Care is the textbook of the National Abortion Federation, and serves as the standard, evidence-based reference text in abortion care. This state-of-the-art textbook provides a comprehensive overview of the public health implications of unsafe abortion and reviews the best surgical and medical practices for pregnancy termination, as well as managing ectopic and other abnormal pregnancies. Management of Unintended and Abnormal Pregnancy: Comprehensive Abortion Care is the leading source for a comprehensive understanding of issues related to unintended and abnormal pregnancy. This textbook:* is authored by internationally-known leaders in women's health care;* addresses unintended pregnancy and abortion from historical, legal, public health, clinical, and quality care perspectives;* includes chapters on pregnancy loss, ectopic pregnancy, gestational trophoblastic disease, and multifetal pregnancy reduction;* covers treatment of pregnancies in the first and second trimester by both medical and surgical techniques; and* provides resources for clinical, scientific, and social support for the abortion provider and patient.

Ostetriche e midwives. Spazi di autonomia e identità corporativa

Elena Spina

editore: Franco Angeli

pagine: 168

Il volume raccoglie e sistematizza i risultati di una ricerca finalizzata ad analizzare l'assetto professionale raggiunto dalla categoria occupazionale ostetrica, coinvolta in una serie di processi che ne stanno modificando i contenuti professionali. Tale terreno di indagine si colloca all'interno del dibattito teorico sulla dominanza medica, tema che, nella misura in cui viene declinato rispetto alle altre occupazioni sanitarie, torna ad essere di straordinaria attualità, alla luce delle riforme aventi ad oggetto le realtà professionali. L'opera adotta una prospettiva di analisi comparata attraverso il confronto dei risultati emersi da una ricerca che ha coinvolto due Paesi, l'Italia e l'Inghilterra. La presentazione dei due casi consente, da un lato, di evidenziare le dinamiche che regolano modelli già costruiti - quale, ad esempio, quello di professionalismo - e, dall'altro, di analizzare i presupposti e le logiche che sottostanno a tali modelli. In questo quadro assumono particolare rilievo due questioni riconducibili, l'una, all'innesco del processo di aziendalizzazione sanitaria e, l'altra, alla crescente tendenza alla medicalizzazione del processo riproduttivo. Il volume si pone come strumento conoscitivo per i professionisti che operano nel settore sanitario, per chi si occupa di formazione e per gli interessati a vario titolo a tematiche di genere, di professionalismo, di questioni legate alla maternità e al fenomeno della medicalizzazione del processo riproduttivo.

Single Embryo Transfer

Catherine Racowsky, G. David Adamson
e altri

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 324

Multiple pregnancies are the most frequent and serious complication of assisted reproduction. Both high-order multiple and twin pregnancies entail a number of medical and economic outcomes that affect the children, the mother, the parents, the families, and society as a whole. Limiting the number of embryos to transfer is the only method available to decrease the incidence of multiple pregnancies. Single Embryo Transfer reviews the advantages and limitations of this approach to assisted reproduction. The crucial issue of selecting the best embryo will be reviewed in detail. All clinical issues involved in setting up and running an SET programme will be covered, including important topics such as cryopreservation of embryos, embryo donation, and patient counselling. The final chapters on future SET trends in Europe and North America are written by leading figures in the IVF world. The book is of interest to physicians, embryologists, nurses, insurers, politicians, ethicists and patients.

Fetal Medicine

Basic Science and Clinical Practice

Charles H. Rodeck, Martin J. Whittle

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 800

This book contains a foreword by John T. Queenan, MD, Professor and Chair Emeritus of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Georgetown University School of Medicine, Washington. Fetal medicine has emerged as a separate subspecialty over the last 30 years as a result of major advances in a number of areas, in particular ultrasound imaging, cytogenetics, molecular biology and biochemistry. The widespread use of antenatal screening and diagnostic tests has led to an increased need for obstetricians to have knowledge and skills in fetal medicine. This book provides the information that underpins training programmes in fetal medicine and integrates science and clinical disciplines in a practical and useful way.
