The guideline covers diagnosis of early
pregnancy loss, including the use of ultrasound scanning and biochemical
testing. Investigations incur costs and the use of serial measurements may delay
decision making. The guideline includes guidance on when senior and/or
specialist advice should be sought in order to avoid errors and unnecessary
delay. The guideline does not cover pregnancy after the first trimester. It also
does not deal with unusual conditions that present with pain and bleeding, such
as hydatidiform mole, which require a different form of treatment.

This atlas was
undertaken with the idea that, there are many excellent text books,
compendiums, and atlases on gynecology, there is no book which gives the student
and physician the material which personal clinical observation should supply.
This book provides a solution for this issue. The author has been made the text as practical as possible.
This easy-to-use manual is arranged by
symptoms (e.g. vaginal bleeding in early pregnancy). Because this symptom-based
approach is different from most medical texts, which are arranged by disease, a
corresponding diagnosis table is provided. Links have been used extensively to
facilitate navigation between symptoms and diagnoses. The clinical action steps
are based on clinical assessment with limited reliance on laboratory or other
tests and most can be performed in a variety of clinical settings.
