Lecture Notes: Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Lecture Notes: Obstetrics and Gynaecology provides a concise introduction to obstetrics and gynaecology for medical students and junior doctors. Six sections examine the female development from the early years to old age. The text starts with a section on Basic Science. Self-assessment questions are found throughout the text to enhance knowledge and understanding.
Part 1 looks at the female reproductive anatomy and physiology in detail. Part 2 covers the puberty and menstrual problems of young women, sub fertility, pregnancy prevention and introduces benign diseases, genital tract infections and sexual problems.
Part 3 examines the reproductive years. Detailed coverage of the mother and foetus in pregnancy includes problems and diseases in pregnancy, labour and the newborn child development. Part 4 covers the mature woman, and includes abnormal vaginal blood loss, pelvic pain, breast disease and screening for gynaecological cancer.
Part 5 discusses the older woman and malignant gynaecological conditions, the menopause and pelvic floor disorders. Part 6 provides an audit of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, looking at statistics in reproductive medicine and gives the answers to self-assessment questions found throughout the text.
Lecture Notes: Obstetrics and Gynaecology is written specifically for medical students, junior doctors, midwives and General Practitioners.
