Clinically, pregnancy acts as a stress test that unmasks maternal disease and may have long-term implications for maternal and fetal health. In Pulmonary Problems in Pregnancy, the editors provide a state-of-the art, comprehensive text focusing on common or complex pulmonary issues occurring in pregnancy. For the first time, leading experts in the fields of obstetric, pulmonary, and critical care medicine provide novel and practical insights into improving the respiratory care of the pregnant patient. The book is divided into three sections. The first few chapters introduce the reader to the normal physiologic changes that occur during pregnancy. A chapter on high altitude is included to illustrate the consequences of chronic hypoxia on maternal and fetal outcomes, to help extrapolate to the effects of chronic pulmonary conditions. The second section reviews general management principles, including diagnostic imaging and prescribing in pregnancy. The final section includes multiple chapters on specific, troubling pulmonary disorders. The specific chapters are intended to summarize the available literature, linking science to bedside, and provide management recommendations whenever possible. In all, Pulmonary Problems in Pregnancy is an essential text that will not only provide critical clinical guidance but also stimulate further investigation into this fascinating and under explored area of medicine.
