New preeclampsia reference book to be published for patients

Última actualización el Miércoles, Junio 06, 2012

Professors Chris Redman and Isabel Walker, co-authors of Pre-eclampsia: The Facts (Oxford University Press 1992) and co-founders of Action on Pre-eclampsia (APEC) in the UK, are seeking input from members of the Preeclampsia Foundation for their latest book, The Pre-eclampsia Survival Guide.

The new book, also co-authored by Joyce Cowan, a midwife who is Director of New Zealand APEC (NZAPEC), will be a comprehensive guide to pre-eclampsia for women and midwives. It will cover everything from historical theories to current treatments; from causation to detection; from prevention to management. It will be rooted very firmly in the real experiences of women who have suffered pre-eclampsia - and that's where you come in.

The authors are keen to illustrate their key points with real life case histories gathered from several different parts of the world. You could be part of this process by contributing to an online survey. Your input will only be used for the book, not any other research studies.

The Pre-eclampsia Survival Guide is expected to be published in the spring/summer of 2013. We will be reviewing the book in draft form to ensure that North American management practices are represented, since the intended audience includes all English speakers worldwide and, of course, we will have the finished product available in our Marketplace.

Despite conflicts over the hyphen in "pre-eclampsia", our universal understanding and management of the hypertensive disorders of pregnancy is mostly aligned in high resource countries. As with most medical issues, there will always be a variety of opinions, especially in a disorder with the moniker "the disease of theories", but we expect this will be a very sought after and trusted reference book for patients and providers alike.
