    Reviews & endorsements

    'This book is a concise, well-written, and organized compendium of diagnostic and clinical tools that can be used to assess and manage obstetric emergencies. Improving provider recognition and management of maternal emergencies is of the utmost importance, as maternal mortality remains high, with approximately 330,000 maternal deaths worldwide in 2015 alone. Despite being intended as a course manual, this book is an excellent standalone text and a good resource for perinatal providers both in the United Kingdom and the United States.' J. Bradley Bavaro, Anesthesia and Analgesia
