  • Description
  • Details

Written by a wide variety of obstetric experts in developing and developed countries.

Every day, approximately 1000 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth, most of which result from common treatable complications, such as haemorrhage, infections, pre-eclampsia and obstructed labour, which have not been recognized in time or treated properly. Every unborn child also faces risk of stillbirth, birth trauma, oxygen deprivation and neonatal death or long-term brain damage during birthing.

The book provides an easy-to-use guide to recognize and treat perinatal emergencies before it is too late. The text includes learning tools such as 'Key Pearls' and 'Key Pitfalls,' a section on managing emergencies in a low-resource setting and contains detailed illustrations throughout. This book is a practical and invaluable guide for obstetricians, neonatologists, midwives, medical students and the wider perinatal team.
