The Obstetric Hematology Manual


The Obstetric Hematology Manual

Obstetric hematology is a fast-growing area of medicine covering the diagnosis and management of hematological problems of pregnancy. Comprehensive in approach, The Obstetric Hematology Manual addresses the many hematological conditions that can cause serious problems in pregnancy, delivery and the post-partum period for both mother and baby. Written by a team of international authorities, this text provides up-to-date, evidence-based guidelines on best care, as well as sound advice based on the experience and opinion of experts. Where appropriate, basic principles are discussed to clarify the rationale for management, and systems and procedures for disease prevention are highlighted. Many conditions and cases are discussed, including venous thromboembolism, pre-eclampsia, anemia, thrombocytopenia and inherited disorders. This book will appeal to both trainees and practitioners in obstetrics, obstetric medicine, obstetric anesthesia and hematology. It is also an accessible text for midwives, nurses, and laboratory staff.


 Reviews:

"Any condition that potentially could be related to hematology is addressed. Given the significance of maternal morbidity and mortality, this most certainly is a worthwhile contribution to the field....One striking aspect of the book is that it is aesthetically pleasing. It is difficult to make a book about hematology engaging but the authors have succeeded -- in both content and appearance -- in creating a book that is a pleasure to read....[W]ill certainly prove an invaluable addition to the libraries of clinicians who deal with these patients."
