Severe Acute Maternal Morbidity
The book opens with an overview of ‘Severe acute maternal morbidity’: Incidence, issues and challenges in diagnosis, standard of care, near-miss audit, communication and medicolegal implications. The chapters that follow elaborate on specific issues relating to obstetric near misses. Near-miss situations are not far and few in actual practice; they are everyday occurrences. The case situations presented in this book bring to focus, the highly emergent and stressful nature of obstetric near misses. In each case, the management and outcome are described, followed by take-home messages—the blueprint for action. This book with the many real-life situations is a timely addition to the obstetric literature and will certainly help to improve the obstetric care in the institutions. It is a must read for all categories of obstetric care providers—doctors, nurses, midwives, nursing assistants and hospital administrators. Lessons can be extracted from these examples to increase patient and community awareness regarding the challenges the obstetric team faces.
