An up-to-date textbook on the clinical essentials in women's healthcare

Written by an international team of OB/GYN practitioners, this book offers an overview of the most important and common clinical issues in obstetrics and gynecology, including reproductive endocrinology, gynecologic oncology, maternal-fetal medicine, and sexuality. It provides readers with current information on evidence-based approaches to the management of normal pregnancy, labor and birth, as well as to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of high-risk pregnancy, infertility, acute and chronic diseases, and psychiatric disorders in women of all ages. For each condition the authors give a clear definition, discuss its epidemiology, etiology, and pathophysiology, and present the most up-to-date protocols for its detection, screening, and clinical management. They also provide a thoughtful evaluation of why certain therapies and approaches are more effective than others.

  • Clearly and consistently organized chapters for optimal comprehension of the material
  • A section dedicated to the legal and ethical issues related to reproductive health
  • 240 illustrations, most in full color, demonstrating critical concepts and data
  • A summary of key points at the end of most chapters and "Evidence" boxes that focus on evidence-based research
  • Access to self-test questions and answers on an accompanying website

A comprehensive introduction to the field, Obstetrics and Gynecology: The Essentials of Clinical Care is an excellent textbook for medical students on clinical rotation in OB/GYN, and for residents and practitioners in the specialty. Nurses, midwives, and physician assistants will also benefit from its wealth of information.
