The revised Fourth Edition of this essential text contains 19 modules that guide the reader from assessment of the pregnant woman and her fetus, through labor and delivery, to postpartum evaluation and care. Each module is carefully developed to enhance self-paced learning and skills attainment, perfect for competence validation and orientation.

The text illustrates the essentials of intrapartum care. Step-by-step "How to's" (Skill Units) guide the nurse from fetal monitoring to management of high risk situations. This edition has new modules on cultural competence and OB Emergencies, including hemorrhage and Caesarian delivery "on demand", and new content on legal accountability, maternal and newborn transport, electronic fetal monitoring, and domestic violence assessment. This revision has been guided by two new co-authors, Margaret Betsy B. Kennedy of the Vanderbilt University School of Nursing, and Donna J. Ruth of the Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Robin Webb Corbett, PhD, RN C(East Carolina University)
Description: This is THE resource guide for intrapartal staff nurses, midwives, women's health advanced practice nurses, and medical students providing direct perinatal care.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a self-paced, self-instructional manual for perinatal practitioners. The information, pertinent skills, and practice/review questions along with post-tests with answers, make this a comprehensive source of perinatal content. A collection of updated modules for perinatal practitioners based upon the most current evidence and best practices, the book continues the quality tradition begun with Dr. Heins' original perinatal outreach program in South Carolina.
Audience: Staff nurses, midwives, women's health advanced practice nurses, and medical students are the intended audience.
Features: Each of the 19 modules has objectives and the content addresses these objectives thoroughly. A glossary and appendixes reinforce the modules and continuing education credit is available for each module. This fourth edition has been updated to include best practices and the most current knowledge. Additions include cultural competence, intimate partner violence, operative and assisted births, and intrapartum emergencies. Other areas have been greatly expanded, such as the fetal monitoring module, which reflects changes in the NICHD nomenclature and perinatal legal accountability.
Assessment: This is the most comprehensive resource of best practice and most current evidence for healthcare professionals who want to provide the best possible care to perinatal patients and their families, undergirded by a strong knowledge base.
