About the Authors
  • Discover new concepts in cardiovascular and hemodynamic functionality during pregnancy, with international experts in feto-maternal medicine. During the early stages of pregnancy, the maternal heart and circulation are subject to major gestational adaptive changes that allow for a normal course and outcome for both mother and baby. Any disruption to these processes can precipitate the onset of severe maternal and fetal complications such as preeclampsia, or intrauterine growth restriction. This invaluable reference work provides a comprehensive discussion of each aspect of the circulation. With a focus on the physiologic and pathophysiologic aspects of maternal cardiovascular function, this guide supports non-invasive assessment, management and prevention techniques for cardiovascular disease, for all stages of fetal and neonatal life. This text supports researchers and specialists in maternal-fetal medicine, whilst providing a key grounding in the topic, for trainees wishing to be at the cutting edge of theories and research.

    • Addresses a flexible new concept in obstetrics, looking at the maternal cardiovascular system as a functional circle, providing readers with tailored adaptations of each part of the circulation, and their relevance towards a normal outcome of pregnancy
    • The reader will have access to both theoretical aspects of gestational physiology and practical techniques when performing these assessments in pregnant women
    • The book is authored by international experts in the field, providing both an opinion-leading reference work for clinicians and researchers who are familiar with the topic, and an educational guide for junior trainees or fellows that want to learn more about gestational hemodynamics
