Asphyxia and Fetal Brain Damage provides an overview of the combined advances in maternal-fetal medicine, neonatology, pediatric neurology, diagnostic imaging, and molecular biology that have altered the way clinicians and researchers understand and manage asphyxial injury to the fetal central nervous system.

Featuring contributions from internationally renowned specialists, Asphyxia and Fetal Brain Damage addresses the etiology and mechanism of fetal asphyxia, presents the latest information on possible therapeutic interventions, and explains the scientific basis of a range of fetal surveillance techniques. The book also discusses clinical management protocols for high-risk pregnancies and addresses risk and liability management strategies.

Individual chapters address topics such as:
* Fetal asphyxia and outcome
* The molecular mechanisms of fetal brain injury
* Perinatal asphyxia and placental pathology
* Management strategies for perinatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy
* Fetal neurosonography
* Computerized approaches to fetal surveillance
* Monitoring the growth-retarded fetus
* Emerging technologies such as fetal optical monitoring

Supplemented with over 200 illustrations, Asphyxia and Fetal Brain Damage is an invaluable reference for obstetricians, neonatologists, maternal-fetal specialists, pediatric neurologists, basic scientists, and legal professionals.
