Tuberculosis Manual for Obstetricians & Gynecologists
This book is a comprehensive guide to the diagnosis and management of tuberculosis in obstetric and gynaecological patients. The book focuses on the endometrium (the inner membrane of the uterus) in cases of pulmonary tuberculosis.
Divided into five sections, the book begins with the history of tuberculosis, including an overview of tuberculosis in the 21st century, and features discussion on the relationship between nutrition in pregnancy and tuberculosis. Subsequent sections cover obstetrics, gynaecological issues, management of tuberculosis, and the final section discusses the future of the disease in obstetrics and gynaecology.
The book discusses multidrug therapy for tuberculosis, and in multidrug resistant cases, strategies for the management of the disease, including isolation, proper ventilation, safe sputum disposal, training on cough hygiene, ultraviolet germicidal irradiation, filtering major air conduits and use of submicron moulded masks. The final section discusses the latest technology in screening, diagnosis, therapy, new drugs and new drug delivery systems.
Illustrated throughout with 66 full colour images, Tuberculosis Manual for Obstetricians & Gynecologists is a definitive source of reference for postgraduate medical students, residents and fellows in obstetrics and gynaecology, consultant obstetricians, gynaecologists, and pulmonologists.
