About this book


Obstetricians and pediatricians in daily practice will find here the answersand explanations they need concerning the major problem of perinatal asphyxia. Leading experts in pediatrics, obstetrics and neurophysiology havecome together to produce a single sourcebook covering all aspects of thesubject. Biochemical mechanisms and clinical aspects of perinatal asphyxia, fetal and neonatal assessment, and perinatal management are thoroughly discussed. Neurodevelopmental outcome is another important issue addressed. In light of newer technologies, the prognosis of infants suffering from asphyxia is examined. Many figures and typicalcases are provided, making the book easy to use and providing quick access to solutions. The reader can easily identify a problem in the fetus and its subsequent development.
