Heart Disease and Pregnancy: Physiology and Management

Heart Disease and Pregnancy: Physiology and Management The authors of this admirable book dedicated themselves to the premise "that an understanding of normal physiology enables management of disease during pregnancy to be rational rather than empirical." This premise is ably and clearly developed. This book should be required reading for all senior medical students and should be equally valuable to every physician responsible for the care of pregnant women, whether he is an obstetrician, general practitioner, internist, or cardiologist. The authors not only develop a sound basis for understanding the impact of pregnancy on the circulatory system but also cover in detail the successful management of all forms of acquired and congenital heart disease during pregnancy. The indications for interruption or prohibition of pregnancy are clearly set forth. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

Abstract

The authors of this admirable book dedicated themselves to the premise "that an understanding of normal physiology enables management of disease during pregnancy to be rational rather than empirical." This premise is ably and clearly developed. This book should be required reading for all senior medical students and should be equally valuable to every physician responsible for the care of pregnant women, whether he is an obstetrician, general practitioner, internist, or cardiologist. The authors not only develop a sound basis for understanding the impact of pregnancy on the circulatory system but also cover in detail the successful management of all forms of acquired and congenital heart disease during pregnancy. The indications for interruption or prohibition of pregnancy are clearly set forth.
