Description At A Glance

Experience and evidence fused for best-practice management of high-risk pregnancies

High-risk pregnancies present life-threatening challenges to two of your patients: the mother and her fetus. The direct, exemplary guidance in Protocols for High-Risk Pregnancy enables you to:
  • better understand your patients' conditions
  • devise optimum management strategies
  • maximize the outcome and minimize the complications for both the mother and her fetus
To enhance clinical relevance, each protocol is written as if the patient were present. Evidence to support an intervention is given where it exists. The authors' experience provides additional wise counsel. Key references provide the springboard for a deeper understanding of a topic. All protocols have been updated. New protocols follow the successful formula of previous editions.

By Jan Fortier
Several weeks ago, we had an infant patient who had received back-to-back heart transplants and was still in congestive heart failure with very poor diastolic function. He had failed extubation several times. The baby's cardiologist was desperate to do something for this child and decided to try nesiritide (Natrecor). Because it is available in Canada by special release only, we were unable to find any information on it other than the package insert. I have Davis's Drug Guide on my PDA, and while it didn't have any information on pediatric administration, it was very helpful in understanding why we were trying it and what it was expected to do for him. He has since graduated for the PICU and will soon be discharged from hospital for the first time in his life.
