Based on the protocols in use at the highly acclaimed King's College Hospital in London, Clinical Protocols in Labour presents a consensus of the best and most appropriate techniques for standard delivery and uncommon clinical scenarios. Each chapter is written as a stand-alone unit making the information easy to find. Coverage ranges from a general approach to care, normal labour, and care of the baby to specific issues such as eclampsia and pre-eclampsia, uterine rupture, and postpartum bleeding. In addition, the book includes protocols for emergency closure of the labour ward, communication among members of the labour team, and more. A compact, authoritative volume, Clinical Protocols in Labour provides practical templates for the perinatal management of women and their babies during labour and delivery.
