Maternal, Fetal, and Neonatal Physiology: A Clinical Perspective / Edition 2 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Elsevier Health Sciences
This practical resource provides a solid foundation for assessment and therapeutic interventions applicable to advanced practice. A superb synthesis of research from physiology and the clinical sciences, this book focuses on normal physiologic changes during pregnancy, anatomic and functional development of the fetus, and developmental physiology of preterm and term neonates. Comprehensive, detailed, well illustrated, and exhaustively referenced, the second edition examines physiologic foundations for the prenatal, intrapartum, and postpartum periods. It also provides an in-depth study of physiologic adaptations and developmental physiology for major body systems or metabolic processes.
• Detailed coverage is provided on the physiologic changes that occur throughout all major periods of the perinatal experience with an emphasis on the mother, fetus, and neonate and the relationships between them.
• Clinical applications relevant to patient care are linked to their underlying scientific rationales.
• Comprehensive tables, diagrams, and illustrations highlight important concepts and summarize complex information.
• All major body systems and processes are reviewed.
• A new chapter on Physiologic Basis for Reproduction focuses on key areas such as endocrinology, processes, and clinical implications for both the female and the male.
• The new Pharmacology and Pharmacokinetics during the Perinatal Period chapter examines the maternal, fetal and neonatal pharmacokinetics and important concerns such as the transfer of pharmacologic agents into breast milk and perinatal substance abuse.
