The second edition of Emergencies in Obstetrics and Gynaecology provides a practical and accessible guide to all emergency situations encountered in obstetrics and gynaecology, from the immediately life-threatening to the smaller but urgent problems that may arise. Designed around the symptoms and signs with which the patient presents to the hospital, this handbook explains how to arrive at a differential diagnosis and how to prevent, manage, or treat an emergency. The 'Obstetric emergencies' section covers topics from early pregnancy through to post-delivery complications, whilst the 'Gynaecologic emergencies' section addresses those issues that could potentially pose a threat to a women's fertility or even her life. Addressing new topics on issues that have become more prevalent, such as substance misuse in pregnancy, and violence against women and children, the second edition of Emergencies in Obstetrics and Gynaecology is an essential read. A new topic on 'preoperative assessment' outlines how to manage consent, the risks, benefits, and what the patient should expect.

Undergraduate medical students often struggle with at least some of the specialty elements of their studies. Some face a further challenge with the advent of the Universities Medical Assessment Partnership (UMAP), with a move away from testing specific clinical facts to an assessment focused on preparing to be a foundation doctor and the knowledge such a trainee needs on a daily basis. Neel Sharma has written three self-assessment books - on psychiatry, obstetrics and gynaecology, and paediatrics - designed to help students tackle both the new form of assessment as well as the traditional style of examination. Questions covering all common presentations are included in SBA and EMQ formats with relevant, concise explanations as answers.

A 35-year-old woman arrives on the labour ward complaining of abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding at 36 weeks 2 days' gestation. The pain started 2 hours earlier while she was in a cafe and is not relieved by lying still or walking around. The bleeding is bright red.

All algorithms are designed to support rapid decision making in the most clinically relevant situations to minimise the risks of a poor outcome. A range of clinical problems are covered from common non-life-threatening emergencies such as hyperemesis in pregnancy, to life-threatening acute events such as ectopic pregnancy, acute fetal distress or maternal collapse. Each topic is presented as either an algorithm, a care pathway, or table of key information and has been carefully structured to ensure a logical progression of thought to aid anticipation, early diagnosis and prompt and appropriate management. Accompanying key learning points highlight the essential information from the topic. Based on current national guidelines and clinical evidence, the algorithms and care pathways can be used as a reliable and practical resource for day to day practice in obstetrics and gynaecology.
