Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Point-of-Care Assessment in Pregnancy and Womenand#39;s Health: Electronic Fetal Monitoring and Sonography delivers a solid foundation in electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) and sonography andndash;techniques fundamental to the assessment of the fetus and female patient.

Brought to you by the authors of Electronic Fetal Monitoring: Concepts and Applications, this book is written in their signature practical and accessible style and is the first to focus on clinical application of both EFM and sonography under one cover. This book is geared toward nurses, midwives, physician assistants, residents, practicing physicians, and other womenandrsquo;s health providers who utilize these technologies and their data in patient management.

Heavily illustrated with case studies, examples, figures, and images, this leading-edge book gives you the tools to:

andbull; Sharpen your point-of-care assessment skills and evaluation of fetal well-being

andbull; Practice interpretation of EFM tracings through self-assessment

andbull; Improve your understanding of both EFM and ultrasound equipment

andbull; Optimize data and image acquisition

andbull; Expand your comprehension of EFM patterns

andbull; Be at the forefront of incorporating point-of-care sonography into clinical practice.

The first section of the book, Electronic Fetal Monitoring, presents in-depth information about physiology, instrumentation, antepartum and intrapartum fetal assessment and pattern interpretation, information technology, and clinical competence. The next section, Sonography, provides an introduction to image acquisition as well as imaging parameters for all aspects of point-of-care obstetric and gynecologic sonography, including assisted reproduction. It also highlights the clinical interdependence of point-of-care sonography as a complementary technology in conjunction with EFM.

Synopsis:

This heavily illustrated, full color text serves as the most current and vital resource for providing safe and effective point-of-care assessment to fetuses and women — offering a solid didactic base of knowledge in both electronic fetal monitoring and sonography.

Section One, Electronic Fetal Monitoring, covers the physiology of the fetal heart rate and fetal monitoring technology, and elements of informational technology. Section Two, Sonography, highlights the clinical interdependence of point-of- care sonography as a complementary technology in conjunction with EFM.

Point-of-Care Assessment in Pregnancy and Womenand#39;s Health covers the principles needed to incorporate point of care songraphy into clinical practice; indications for diagnostic ultrasound; how ultrasound equipment works to help the reader obtain the best images; point-of-care sonographic assessment and evaluation of fetal well-being; and gynecologic and reproductive medicine imaging.

Synopsis:

Co-published with the Association of Women's Health, Obstetrics & Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), this comprehensive book on advanced obstetrics practice focuses on the care of childbearing women with complications during pregnancy and the related professional concerns of perinatal professionals caring for them. This substantially revised edition reflects the significant change in this specialty area and the need to collaborate in practice to maximize patient outcomes. All chapters have been revised by RN-MD author teams.

This edition includes the AWHONN Perinatal Morbidity Advisory Panel Top 5 Issues: obesity, thromboembolic disease, diabetes, perinatal infections, and cardiac disease. The entire first section presents the realities of today's practice including ethics, collaboration, and patient safety. Nineteen chapters detail the primary complications of pregnancy.

Synopsis:

An official publication of the Association of Womenandrsquo;s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), Perinatal Nursing, Fourth Edition presents up-to-date information based on the most rigorous evidence and offers suggestions for best practices. This new edition of the authoritative, comprehensive text used by perinatal nurses worldwide features a wealth of new content to keep practice current.

Youandrsquo;ll reach for this highly practical resource for: expanded coverage of high-risk pregnancy, from bleeding in pregnancy to preterm labor and birth, diabetes, cardiac disease, pulmonary complications, multiple gestation, and maternal-fetal transport. And, you'll expertly manage today's broader scope of perinatal nursing with . . . an all-new chapter on obesity in pregnancy covers risks to the mother and fetus, care from preconception to postpartum, as well as bariatric surgery. And, an expanded chapter on newborn nutrition includes new sections on the infant feeding decision, benefits of breastfeeding, nutritional components, and preterm milk and lactation. New chapters related to patient safety and the development of a highly reliable perinatal unit, inform nurses how to conduct team training and drills for obstetric emergencies, create checklists, and effectively handoff patients.

Two experienced perinatal nurses team with the prestigious Association of Womenandrsquo;s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses and more than 70 contributors and reviewers for an unbiased perspective.
