The scope is not simply labor and delivery, but integrated management of patient care in labor and delivery units as they are utilized today. Thirty-four contributed chapters give an overview, followed by discussion of normal labor and delivery management (induction, multiple gestations, malpresentations); labor and delivery as an intensive care unit (tocolysis, preterm labor, asthma, sickle cell disease); controversies (e.g. electronic fetal monitoring, delivery of the very-low-birth-weight infant); and social obstetrics (e.g. medicolegal issues, conflicts between maternal and fetal well-being, perinatal loss).
