Global and national confidential inquiry reports show that 60 to 80% of maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality are due to avoidable errors. This comprehensive and illustrated second edition offers a practical guide to the management of obstetric, medical, surgical, anaesthetic and newborn emergencies in addition to organisational and training issues. The book is divided conveniently into nine sections and updated throughout in line with modern research and practice. Several new chapters cover setting up skills and drills training in maternity services to reduce avoidable harm, managing obstetric emergencies during 'home births' and in low-risk midwifery units, and minimizing maternal and fetal morbidity in failed operative vaginal delivery. Each chapter includes a practical algorithm for quick reference, the scientific basis for proposed actions, a case-based practical exercise and useful learning tools such as 'Key Pearls' and 'Key Pitfalls'. An invaluable resource for obstetricians, neonatologists, midwives, medical students, anesthesiologists and the wider perinatal team.
In light of new recommendations for intrapartum care, this fully updated second edition offers a review of best practice in all aspects of labour and delivery. This authoritative guide incorporates revised recommendations from the latest MBRRACE-UK Report, NICE guidelines, Cochrane Reviews and RCOG Green-top Guidelines to provide advice that is in line with the latest research and practice. New chapters cover the aspects of non-technical skills, ranging from leadership and team work to situational awareness and decision making. This edition also emphasises the problem of adherent placenta and discusses how it should be managed. With its modern, evidence-based approach, Best Practice in Labour and Delivery is the ideal textbook for those training in labour ward practice and studying for postgraduate examinations. Offering clear and practical guidance, this comprehensive book will help all obstetricians, obstetric anaesthetists, midwives and nurse practitioners to understand and deliver the best clinical care to patients.
