James chats to Nhi Nguyen about common medical issues in the pregnant patient.

Pregnant patients can be daunting for junior doctors for a number of reasons, the risk of missing something serious is a high burden of responsibility when there are two patients to consider, and the presentation may be caused by a medical problem unrelated to pregnancy or may be a specific pathology related to pregnancy.


Dr Nhi Nguyen is a Senior Staff Specialist in the Department of Intensive Care at Nepean Hospital in Sydney, Australia.  She is also Clinical Advisor at Intensive Care NSW and at the Agency for Clinical Innovation.  Nhi provides advice on the antenatal and peripartum management of pregnant patients with medical problems and has an interest in the critically ill obstetric patient.
