Williams Manual of Pregnancy Complications, 23e is a carry-anywhere, condensed guide to the Williams protocols for diagnosis and management of complications and illnesses during pregnancy.

  • Hypertension disorders in pregnancy
  • Pain management dosages
  • Procedures for complicated labor and delivery, hemoglobinopathies, and more!

    Thoroughly cross-referenced to Williams Obstetrics, 23e for the latest literature citations, this edition is enhanced by a new full-color presentation, more tables and algorithms, and an increased emphasis on diagnosis and treatment. There is no faster or more efficient way to access the key facts, diagnostic tools, and treatment guidelines found in Williams Obstetrics, 23e than this authoritative, streamlined sourcebook.
