We are pleased to announce the addition of the following titles to the ObGyn Collection:

Foley, Obstetric Intensive Care Manual, 4e - This title is is the only practical quick-reference available to obstetricians, intensivists, residents, and nurses on intensive and critical care obstetric issues. The 4th edition is fully updated and presents treatment information on commonly encountered obstetrical emergencies, such as anaphylactoid syndrome of pregnancy, thyroid storm, and psychiatric disorders, and offers guidance on the basics, complicating chronic conditions(obesity, heart disease, HIV infection, diabetes), special care scenarios (blood transfusion, transport, trauma, poisoning), and emergency conditions (hemorrhage, renal failure, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, sepsis, and hypertensive, endocrine, respiratory, neurologic and psychiatric emergencies).

Pacheco, Maternal Medicine - This title is the first text on the market designed to help ObGyn residents and practicing physicians effectively care for pregnant women with a wide range of potentially threatening conditions–from asthma to epilepsy, diabetes to thyroid disease. Focusing primarily on diagnosis and management with the goal of limiting complications early, the chapters focus on specific conditions rather than organ systems. The authors have carefully selected topics that reflect conditions most often encountered in clinical practice, and coverage of each topic includes antepartum, intra-partum, and post-partum management. ObGyn residents and practicing physicians will find all they need in one convenient reference, including tables, tips, medication dosages, contraindications, lab values, diagnostic criteria, management algorithms, and levels of evidence.

Hogge, Practical Genetics for the Ob-Gyn - Written for both ObGyn generalists and specialists in maternal-fetal medicine, reproductive endocrinology, and gynecologic oncology, Practical Genetics for the Ob-Gyn is organized around three central themes: basic genetic principles, clinical applications for ob-gyn practice, and common methods of genetic testing. The importance of learning genetic principles in training is reflected in the heavy emphasis on questions regarding genetics issues on both the written and oral examinations given in not only general ObGyn, but also in the subspecialty examinations in maternal-fetal medicine, reproductive endocrinology, and gynecologic oncology.
