Obstetric & Gynecological Emergencies

by Swaraj Batra, Deepti Goswami, Sangeeta Bhasin

The Obstetric and Gynecological Emergencies depicts obstetric emergencies, gynecological emergencies, and emergencies common to obstetrics and gynecology, where the management of emergency situations in medical practice remains the same everywhere. Major topics covered in obstetric emergencies include ectopic pregnancy, hydatidiform mole, inevitable and incomplete abortion, hyperemesis gravidarum, cardiac failure in pregnancy, antepartum hemorrhage, fetal distress during labor, shoulder dystocia, inversion uterus, perineal tear during delivery, postpartum collapse, puerperal sepsis and cardiopulmonary resuscitation of a pregnant patient. The specialty of obstetrics and gynecology is the only specialty in which a single emergent event can threaten the lives of two individuals, the mother and her fetus, and a completely healthy woman may surrender purely to a pregnancy related complication. The book also briefly discusses about acute pelvic inflammatory disease, bartholin abscess, ovarian torsion, emergency contraception, ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, acute complications of intrauterine contraceptive device, acute urinary retention, endotoxic shock, acid base balance, common electrolyte abnormalities, gynecological emergencies, and emergency laboratory investigations.
