Select Price  


In this edition of Precis, a completely new section that includes the new Institute of Medicine guidelines and information on sleep apnea and bariatric surgery has been added. Another new section is devoted to substance abuse; specifically, the latest information on maternal and fetal effects of illegal drugs, alcohol, and tobacco use. The topic of pain management in pregnancy was refocused from the use of obstetric analgesia and anesthesia to a new section on the management of chronic pain and headache. Other important advances, such as novel, but not yet standardized, screening and treatment modalities for intrauterine growth restriction and the new classification system for intrapartum fetal heart rate monitoring and management are discussed within the contexts of their own sections.
