Early Pregnancy Issues for the MRCOG and Beyond
With the emergence of early pregnancy issues in many hospitals, demand for educational support and the development of clear management guidelines is more pressing than ever. This book covers a wide range of early pregnancy-related issues, such as early pregnancy development, physiology and various pathological conditions encountered by clinicians in day-to-day practice, such as miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, trophoblastic disease and hyperemesis gravidarum. The book is primarily designed to provide a comprehensive summary for candidates preparing for the Part 2 MRCOG examination, and as such covers the RCOG curriculum for early pregnancy issues. It is also a valuable guide for all healthcare professionals working in the field, including trainees, consultants and midwives.
