    Am pornit la drum cu dorinta de a aduce un instrument de lucru care, tinand cont de situatia actuala din Romania, sa delimiteze testarile cu adevarat necesare de cele facultative sau complet inutile. Un alt rol al sau este facilitarea obtinerii unei solutii cat mai rapide si corecte in dilema: este sau nu permis in timpul sarcinii acest antibiotic? Dar acest vaccin?

    De ce o asemenea initiativa? Pentru ca nu suntem un popor al regulilor si al masurii in ceea ce facem asa ca avem in acelasi timp:

    gravide ce ajung sa nasca fara sa stie din timp ca sunt infectate cu VHB sau cu HIV astfel incat sa se poata da o sansa in plus sanatatii copiilor lor, dar si gravide suprainvestigate incat rezultatele testelor sunt contradictorii sau imposibil de interpretat

    medici care recomanda gravidelor fara indicatie serologie de Listeria sau alte teste inutile, dar si medici care nu recomanda nicio testare

    gravide care repeta de mai multe ori aceleasi teste intr-un interval de timp de cateva saptamani si ajung de multe ori sa nu mai creada in rezultatele acestora si sa actioneze la intamplare 

    medici care induc gravidei decizia de intrerupere a sarcinii pe baza unei interpretari fanteziste a rezultatelor testarilor recomandate de ei, dar si medici care neglijeaza sa transmita interpretarea acestor rezultate gravidei si sa ii faca recomandarile necesare.

    Pe parcursul elaborarii acestui ghid am realizat tot mai mult ca avem un bun prilej de a incerca sa facem din el si un instrument de lucru impotriva utilizarii excesive si/sau eronate de antibiotice in infectiile caracteristice si in cele frecvente la gravida/lauza.

    Lasand continutul ghidului sa indeplineasca rolul de instrument de lucru ne-am permis sa evidentiem unele obstacole in calea im­plementarii unei atitudini coerente in acest domeniu medical, sub forma de raspunsuri la cateva intrebari.

     Cand testam?

    Suntem inca una dintre acele state ale Uniunii Europene in care primul bilant al unei gravide se mai efectueaza cand travaliul s-a declansat. Despre planning si evaluare preconceptionala vorbim inca rar, iar sarcina este adesea privita drept o intamplare, un dar sau o problema; din pacate, si generalizarea evaluarii initiale a gravidei in primul trimestru ramane un deziderat de atins in anii ce vin.

     Cine recomanda testarile? Cine prescrie antibiotice, care anume si in ce situatii?

    La aceasta intrebare un raspuns unic este hazardat: ginecologul? Medicul de familie? Infectionistul? De fapt, raspunsul nu ar mai avea nicio relevanta daca ar exista un consens in privinta a ceea ce este necesar sa fie testat. Este insa evident ca actualul circuit, in care pe fluxul medic de familie – ginecolog – infectionist, de la ultima veriga se poate decide reluarea ciclului pentru testari omise la pasii anteriori sau se ajunge la inlocuirea/intreruperea administrarii unui antibiotic prescris gravidei in mod eronat/excesiv, este nefunctional. 

     

    Ce se testeaza?

    in domeniul patologiei infectioase se aplica insa foarte bine regula lui „aici si acum“; de aceea, si testarile pentru infectiile cu potentiala transmitere maternofetala au un continut specific situatiei din fiecare regiune. A recomanda anumite teste „dupa ureche“ si a trimite apoi gravida cu rezultatele la interpretare „la un infectionist“ poate expune la cateva riscuri:

    pune in dificultate infectionistul in a furniza interpretari unor testari inutile sau fara semnificatie pentru situatia actuala a sarcinii

    expune medicul ginecolog riscului de scadere a credibilitatii in fata gravidei daca infectionistul se vede nevoit sa prescrie teste omise in bilantul initial

     Cine deconteaza testarile?

    Nu toata raspunderea in privinta derapajelor acestor testari apartine lipsei de educatie a gravidei in acest domeniu si/sau deficientelor profesionale ale medicului sau curant. De multe ori am intalnit gravide care aveau o lista de teste recomandate si neefectuate; cel mai adesea iti spun – „nu am avut bani ca sa fac aceste analize“.  Daca ne referim doar la testele cu adevarat utile, majoritatea sunt asigurate in mod gratuit pentru toate gravidele din Romania, dar unele nu. De aici se desprind cel putin doua idei:

    - necesitatea de a sustine efectuarea gratuita a tuturor acelor teste cu adevarat necesare, beneficiul medical si cel economic fiind cert;

    - necesitatea limitarii recomandarilor la testarile justificate, fara a incarca lista de analize cu alte teste inutile dar care costa, ceea ce va determina uneori ca gravida sa renunte la efectuarea oricarui test

     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 ofEmergencies 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.

    To its proponents, the ultrasound scanner is a safe, reliable, and indispensable aid to diagnosis. Its detractors, on the other hand, argue that its development and use are driven by the technological enthusiasms of doctors and engineers (and the commercial interests of manufacturers) and not by concern to improve the clinical care of women. In some U.S. states, an ultrasound scan is now required by legislation before a woman can obtain an abortion, adding a new dimension to an already controversial practice. "Imaging and Imagining the Fetus" engages both the development of a modern medical technology and the concerted critique of that technology. Malcolm Nicolson and John Fleming relate the technical and social history of ultrasound imaging – from early experiments in Glasgow in 1956 through wide deployment in the British hospital system by 1975 to its ubiquitous use in maternity clinics throughout the developed world by the end of the twentieth century. Obstetrician Ian Donald and engineer Tom Brown created ultrasound technology in Glasgow, where their prototypes were based on the industrial flaw detector, an instrument readily available to them in the shipbuilding city. As a physician, Donald supported the use of ultrasound for clinical purposes, and as a devout High Anglican he imbued the images with moral significance. He opposed abortion – decisions about which were increasingly guided by the ultrasound technology he pioneered – and he occasionally used ultrasound images to convince pregnant women not to abort the fetuses they could now see. "Imaging and Imagining the Fetus" explores why earlier innovators failed where Donald and Brown succeeded. It also shows how ultrasound developed into a "black box" technology whose users can fully appreciate the images they produce but do not, and have no need to, understand the technology, any more than do users of computers. These "images of the fetus may be produced by machines", the authors write, "but they live vividly in the human imagination".

    Description:

    This practical guide covers all aspects of gynaecological ultrasound, focusing on good technique, the ultrasound machine and reporting. Written by experts with a strong reputation for training in the field, this book takes a 'tips and tricks' approach. Chapters cover topics such as equipment familiarization, principles of transvaginal ultrasound, the awkward uterus, the difficult ovary, and ART-related procedures. The authors discuss the use of both basic ultrasound and 3D machines, and provide tips on how to optimize the image and gain useful clinical information even in the most challenging of assessments. With a multitude of images included to train the eye to identify normal anatomy and common pathologies, chapter summary boxes and case-based examples also provide an easy reference for assessing conditions and lesions. This book will greatly improve the scanning technique of trainees in obstetrics and gynaecology, sonographers, reproductive medicine practitioners, and gynaecologists of any level.
