Obstetric emergencies are unplanned and often unanticipated. Management requires a clear understanding of the life-saving and damage-limiting treatments that can be implemented. This manual covers life-threatening emergencies of pregnancy in a systematic and comprehensive way, teaching the skills and procedures needed to save the mother and fetus. Essential anatomical, physiological and pathological information is presented and clinically applied, and treatment algorithms give clear, step-by-step management advice. This easy to read, practical handbook is recommended reading prior to the Managing Obstetric Emergencies and Trauma (MOET) course, providing structured preparation and revision. It is also an aide memoire for senior doctors facing rare events and is invaluable in promoting a multidisciplinary approach in complex conditions. Trainee obstetricians, midwives and anaesthetists will find this invaluable in developing their ability and confidence when facing emergencies, and a useful resource for advanced exams. No obstetric clinician should be without it!
