This highly practical, illustrated handbook is intended for those involved with obstetric emergencies at all levels of care. The author takes the view that, since most obstetric emergencies originate outside the hospital and have to be dealt with initially by community health personnel, it is particularly important to emphasise essential treatment in circumstances where only limited facilities are available. The practical management of emergencies is dealt with in a concise and positive style, and the author takes time briefly to discuss pathophysiology and aetiology so that clinical presentation and rationale for advised treatment are fully understood. The author's personal experience of dealing with obstetric emergencies in a remote part of the world places him in an ideal position to write a book of this nature.
