About

Overview

This heavily illustrated, full color text serves as the most current and vital resource for providing safe and effective point-of-care assessment to fetuses and women -- offering a solid didactic base of knowledge in both electronic fetal monitoring and sonography. Section One, Electronic Fetal Monitoring, covers the physiology of the fetal heart rate and fetal monitoring technology, and elements of informational technology. Section Two, Sonography, highlights the clinical interdependence of point-of- care sonography as a complementary technology in conjunction with EFM. Point-Of-Care Assessment In Pregnancy And Women's Health covers the principles needed to incorporate point of care songraphy into clinical practice; indications for diagnostic ultrasound; how ultrasound equipment works to help the reader obtain the best images; point-of-care sonographic assessment and evaluation of fetal well-being; and gynecologic and reproductive medicine imaging.
