Pregnant women present to the obstetrician first. So obstetrician many times find themselves with a critically ill pregnant women under their care. They are in a dilemma how to deal with these cases as traditionally, care of the critically ill is done by anesthetist and medical adventist.
The pregnancy induced maternal physiologic changes added together with pathophysiological changes of critical illness that makes their management extremely complex. Treating these rare emergencies is a challenge.
Critical Care in Obstetrics is an attempt to guide practising obstetricians to deal with these emergencies.
This book also deals with care of the fetus in a critically ill gravida as well as care of baby born to critically ill mothers.
Special attention has been given to anesthetic management of critically ill obstetric patient and procedures such as airway and ventilation.
We hope this book shall be of assistance to all of you who handle obstetrical emergency unit.
