This new edition of an acclaimed text reviews the evidence for best practice in maternal-fetal medicine, to present the reader with the right information, with appropriate use of proven interventions and avoidance of ineffectual or harmful ones, and by rating the evidence of the key references. The information is presented in the right format by summarizing evidence succinctly and clearly in tables and algorithms. The aim is to inform the clinician, to reduce errors and "to make it easy to do it right."
The volume can be purchased separately or together with a companion volume on Obstetric Evidence Based Guidelines (set ISBN 978 1 4987 4742 4).
"This is an excellent resource with quick and easy protocols. It has more information than a typical protocol collection…the editor is one of the most respected names in the field and this book has a permanent spot on my shelf."
