Women, young and old, have a unique set of emergencies that require a special focus. This module begins with a review of anatomy and physiology relevant to the management of acutely ill, injured, and pregnant women, then goes into detail on the pathophysiology of a host of emergent Ob/Gyn conditions and their treatments. Helpful algorithms and clinical pearls are shared as you work through the work-up, diagnosis, and management of a broad range of chief complaints and clinical scenarios related to women’s health.
