Practical Obstetric Haematology

Reviewed by Peter Clark

In the last 10 years there has been a rapid expansion in the clinical interaction between hematologists and obstetricians. As a result there is an increasing challenge to hematologists, obstetricians and midwifery staff to understand and manage the clinical manifestations of a number of rapidly developing areas of hemato-obstetric science.

This book is intended to serve practitioners involved in haematology, obstetrics and vascular medicine. The book is designed to assist the reader in diagnosis and treatment of these conditions and provides a user-friendly, but authoritative, source of information on the pathophysiology of hemato-obstetric problems that incorporates the best practice contained within internationally accepted guidelines of obstetric and haematological care.

The book is intended to assist the reader in rapidly assimilating the essential aspects of the pathophysiology of these conditions as well as guide to the pitfalls associated with investigation and treatment. Each chapter has similar format and employs extensive use of tables and figures.

To assist the reader, each of the chapters in the book conforms to a similar style that includes: pathophysiology; presentation; differential diagnosis; diagnostic tests; diagnostic difficulties; maternal complications, foetal complications; and potential management complications. Each chapter also includes tables summarising the key points in diagnosis and management, as well as information on the likely impact of new therapies and a preview of the developing issues relating to each condition.
