About this title

Oxford Specialist Handbooks in Cardiology

  • Contains chapters dedicated to each condition affecting pregnant women, including acquired and congenital heart disease, and associated medical conditions
  • Provides the relevant obstetric knowledge and processes needed for a cardiologist to successfully manage a pregnant woman
  • Includes a highlighted section on cardiac emergencies in pregnancy for quick reference

All cardiologists will be called on to assess and manage pregnant women; the majority, however, have had little or no training in the subject. In the same way, obstetricians assess women with cardiac conditions, and therefore require the knowledge to both refer patients with heart disease and manage them through the pregnancy. But a recent enquiry into maternal deaths has highlighted that morbidity and mortality of women with heart disease in pregnancy has continued to increase over the past 15 years, and that sub-standard care has been identified in 40% of cases. Recommendations have been made that women with, or at risk of, heart disease are screened and counselled on the appropriate risks of undergoing a pregnancy, and as a result all physicians involved need a good understanding of the subject and access to the relevant information.

A concise handbook written for cardiology and obstetric trainees and consultants, as well as for specialist nurses and midwives, Heart Disease in Pregnancy provides a detailed introduction to the physiological changes of pregnancy and gives practical advice on the management of women with heart disease who are pregnant or who are considering pregnancy. It also provides the relevant obstetric knowledge and processes needed for a cardiologist to successfully manage a pregnant woman.

Editors: Dawn L Adamson, Mandish K Dhanjal, and Catherine Nelson-Piercy
