Obstetrics in Remote Settings: Practical Guide for Non-specialized Health Care Professionals By Anne-Sophie Coutin et al
Publisher: Mede.cins S.ans Fronti.eres 2007 | 222 Pages | ISBN: 290649867X | PDF | 4 MB


This manual is intended for non-obstetricians working in remote settings where medical resources are lacking. The goal is to overcome the fundamental threat of pathology—that is, save the mother, protect her from any functional sequelae of the pregnancy, and deliver the child in the best possible conditions. The manual is not meant to teach diagnosis and management to those unfamiliar with them; that requires several years of specialized study based mainly on practical experience. Rather, it presents the concepts most likely to help those practicing in difficult conditions. We thought it necessary to discuss certain techniques, like symphysiotomy, which are now considered outdated. Conversely, some things, like X-ray pelvimetry, were deliberately omitted—not for the sake of leaving things out, but because they were not considered applicable. Despite all efforts, it is possible that errors may have been overlooked in this manual. Please inform the authors of any errors detected. It is important to remember that, if in doubt, it is the responsibility of the prescribing medical professional to ensure that the doses indicated in this manual conform to the manufacturer's specifications.
