human placental trophoblasts: impact of maternal nutrition explores the vital roles of trophoblasts play in fetal growth and pregnancy, giving you new insight into the modulation of placental trophoblast functions by nutrients. it also reviews the role of fatty acids, folic acids, and specific vitamins in this aspect. the book highlights the critical role of nutrients on human placental development and its’ “in utero” programming effects on the development of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, and obesity in later life.
the book begins with discussions of the central process of placentation and its regulation on size and growth of the fetus. it also covers the effects of key macronutrients on placental growth, metabolism, transport, and secretory function. the text details important vitamins and few micronutrients and their roles in the feto-placental growth and development. it includes information on the influence of maternal lifestyle and environmental factors on regulation of the growth, metabolism and gene expression in the feto-placental unit. a review of the genes linked to the process of placentation rounds out the coverage.
an examination of a broad range of evidence in the areas of placental growth, function, and its impact on feto-placental outcome, the book presents new knowledge on nutrition and its relevance with early human development. this includes not only the effects of maternal nutrients on possible neonatal growth and development but also their regulation by maternal lifestyle associated factors. a fine blending of epidemiology, clinical nutrition, perinatal and neonatal medicine, and biochemistry and molecular biology areas of research activities, the book helps you to understand the impact of maternal nutrition on placentation and its relevance with pregnancy outcome and fetal programming of adult health and disease.

this comprehensive text emphasizes the practical application of electronic fetal monitoring (efm). case scenarios link various clinical situations with data interpretation to promote critical thinking. relevant, up-to-date research helps readers develop problem solving skills; identify optimal treatment responses; and become familiar with the disease and nondisease conditions in pregnant patients that affect fetal health. more than 170 efm strips complement the text. this edition has more monitoring strips and a new chapter on electronic record-keeping by a well-known expert.
electronic fetal monitoring: concepts and applications, second edition is a must-have purchase for anyone responsible for efm interpretation.

foetal cardiology has developed dramatically into a subspecialty in the past 25 years. the majority of people examining the foetal heart are not ‘experts’ in foetal cardiology and therefore find interpreting images, particularly in case of abnormality, rather difficult. this book is designed as a practical guide, to be kept near the ultrasound machine, for all those performing foetal heart scans, but without the expertise of a foetal cardiologist. the aim is to allow the user to recognise the common forms of foetal cardiac abnormality and to appreciate the associated lesions and outcome.the book has a large number of illustrations to enable the reader to visualise the different types of problem and the various forms in which they may manifest. there are relatively few books published in the field of foetal cardiology. whilst there is a place for large textbooks covering all aspects of foetal cardiology in detail, most people performing the foetal heart scan need an idiot’s guide about the normal foetal heart and the common things that go wrong with it.this book is aimed at all sonographers, obstetricians and radiologists performing obstetric ultrasound scans and at paediatric cardiologists, both at consultant and trainee level. thus, this book should fulfil this unmet need in the market, although it is not designed as a comprehensive reference textbook in foetal cardiology.
