Respiratory diseases affect a large proportion of the population and can cause complications when associated with pregnancy. Pregnancy induces profound anatomical and functional physiological changes in the mother, and subjects the mother to pregnancy-specific respiratory conditions. Reviewing respiratory conditions both specific and non-specific to pregnancy, the book also addresses related issues such as smoking and mechanical ventilation. Basic concepts for the obstetrician are covered, including patient history, physiology and initial examinations. Topics such as physiological changes during pregnancy and placental gas exchange are discussed for the non-obstetrician. Guidance is practical, covering antenatal and post-partum care, as well as management in the delivery suite. An essential guide to respiratory diseases in pregnancy, this book is indispensable to both obstetricians and non-obstetric physicians managing pregnant patients.

  • Covers respiratory diseases in pregnancy from both an obstetric and non-obstetric perspective, in order to bring experts in varying specialities to a shared level of understanding
  • Practical guidance for all stages of pregnancy, from antenatal to post-partum care, ensures this is an indispensable reference for clinicians involved in caring for women of reproductive age
  • Written by international leading experts in respiratory conditions, up-to-date clinical advice and understanding is provided in one handy guide
