Summary "Revised and updated for its Fourth Edition, the Handbook of Obstetric and Gynecologic Emergencies is designed for rapid reference in the office or emergency room. The focus is on the diagnosis and treatment of all emergent conditions and non-emergent problems, such as sexually transmitted diseases, that frequently present in emergency departments." "This edition has been updated to address current challenges such as complications arising from medical and surgical abortion, medical and psychological problems arising from sexual assault and other gynecologic traumas, and emergent conditions due to chemical-biological warfare. The chapters on Trauma in Pregnancy, Infections in Pregnancy, and Pelvic Masses have been completely revised."--Jacket
