"Essentials of Obstetrics and Gynaecology" is the perfect clinical companion. It is fully revised and updated for this new edition. It is concise. It is evidence-based. It is focused on the core curriculum. The comprehensive coverage is sign-posted by clear, consistent headings, from definition, aetiology, pathophysiology, history taking, general advice, clinical features, investigations, management, treatment, prognosis and assessment to risk factors, and differential diagnoses. It includes self-assessment, emergency procedures and normal values.


From reviews of the previous edition: '. the ideal book for a 4-week attachment in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. This book covers all you need to know in a succinct and comprehensive manner. It clearly explains the practical aspect of the speciality with good coverage of the clinical features of core conditions and subsequent management. At the back of book are useful exam questions and answers which is extremely helpful during revision time. .This is an excellent book to carry with you on wards.' 'This is a great little book which does exactly what it says on the tin; perfect as a quick read before clinic.' 'Of all so called 'pocket sized' books, this one has got to be at the top of my list. Very few books can hold my focus for long but this book is actually readable by my standards! The information per topic is enough to bat away the most interrogating of consultants, and there is a nice sequence to all of the chapters with the more straightforward topics at the beginning. So it's absolutely ideal for the student starting on their O&G placement with no idea about menorrhagia! . For revision purposes it's great. Personally, I think this book alone gives enough to get through exams!'
