Acute Care and Emergency Gynecology covers almost 100 common and uncommon gynecologic problems encountered in urgent and emergency settings. Problems are presented in a case-based approach, integrating relevant evidence-based major Society recommendations where available, and supplementing with carefully researched expert opinion for many common situations for which no guidelines apply. The emphasis in on management. Discussions are designed to be detailed enough to guide practice, but focused to where they can be read in the time available prior to seeing a patient. The book serves two goals: first, it is designed for the many providers who prefer case-based learning, particularly for continuing professional development purposes; secondly, it is designed for rapid reference for someone seeing a similar case in this setting. Essential reading for physicians, midwives, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants in the areas of gynecology, family medicine, and primary care who provide gynecologic care in the urgent and emergency setting.
