Ed. by Farine, Dan
Series:Hot Topics in Perinatal Medicine 3
- the only book covering all technologies that address different problems and issues in labor management
Aims and Scope
Different technologies have been introduced to improve management of labor. To date there is no single text that aims at covering all these technologies that address different problems and issues in labor management.
The book reviews new technologies and devices aimed to improve labor management and outcomes. These diverge between looking at a better way to use fetal heart rate monitors (that are used in 90% of labours); using new monitors to detect the <1% of babies that are damaged in labor and account for 99% of the medico-legal costs in labor; and early detection of non-progressive labors that complicate 30-50% of labors. This is the only book about all these technologies from the perspectives of new devices and technologies in labor.
